Ya the dash well maybe a woodgrain upgrade  icon_smile_big, the car is on stilts and I just had to buy a new clutch and pressure plate, got the flywheel resurfaced, and the dash being not covered is the last of my WORRIES.  Purchased a new shifter lever from sst (they said I should get a pistol grip, no wrong year) because the one with the Tremec I purchased is straight, got a new brown 4 speed ball from year one, only place on the planet that sells them. anyways the stress is getting well, stressful.

Okay, I'll stop ragging you about the dash. Just thought I'd save you the $800 for a 5 piece bezel kit and the unobtainium good dash pad prices.

Say, while you're at it, are you giving much thought to going to power brakes...and possibly front discs?

Converting front brakes to any of the 1970 and newer disk setups is not expensive.     This kit offered is the later 1970's style sliding caliper.   Very easy setup to work on.     The kit requires 15" wheels for clearance.

More progress on the car, it was supposed to be done by now, but with all the hidden rust its hopefully August now.  Heres some picks of the rear floor pan area that has been patched.  Asked if I should just get a new rear floor pan Sean said its not that bad just 2 patches.  Got the shifter from SST and the ball from year one.  The shifter was a course thread but the ball was a fine thread.  Took it too my dads place he quickly tapped it out fits perfect now.  The chrome exhaust tips that I was going to replace because they looked like crap were washed and cleaned.  Now look super good saved some money.  Kinda realized got the car in August last year, was at Pro Stock for about 1 month get new motor, been a Clarke Customs since November,  been in a shop 2x more than at home.

Heres a couple of picks of the Tremec 600 TKO picked up in Red Cliff Alberta last week.  Also the rear brake cable which this car never came with.  Think if its going to be a manual might need a parking brake.

Here is the Dakota Roller Bearing you need    Pilot Bearing Dakota roller bearing MP#53009180 or custom. Fits large hole, crank drilling for stick is not required. Tremecs all have 3/4" pilot like regular 4spd

Kinda in a dilemma now, Sean has taken the nose cone apart, ground it down, now he thinks it's a real superbird cone.  Say he can modify it, but thinking it's better to get a fiberglass Daytona cone and save Sean a week of modifications.  Wondering if the it's a real Superbird cone  shruggy is it worth much any idea thoughts HuhHuhHuhHuhHuh

Looks like a 'Bird nose.  Now, if I recall correctly, the headlight doors are the same for both S-Birds and Daytonas.  Not sure about the headlight buckets though...but I'll just bet someone will chime in soon.
