Just talked to the shop.  

Plan forward, Tuesday I am moved to the front, Jack up the rear, remove the 8 1/4" rear, put in Subframe connectors, clean up th underside and "rhino liner" underside.  Final patch welding at rear vertical trunk area to be done.

I get home Thursday, and Saturday the 12, I drop off the 8 3/4" rear w/ Caltrac setup for installation.





Then Paint quote and Paint last two weeks in Sept.



PHOTOSHOP of another members car, color changed to Plum Crazy, with what look I am thinking of (Hood Graphics may be a bit different, either 73 Style or painted Bulge Gloss Black w/ -same metallic amount as the Plum)...
Wheels will be Magnum or I may go with powdercoated Black Rally cop wheels with Chrome Covers.

Do you need the rear to get there any quicker?

Thanks Mike, should be good, they are wrapping up a Galaxy today, I move back to being in Work Tuesday...so figure take out the rear, subframe connectors clean up bottom and finish the trunk patches, that should take em til Thurs/Fri so I can get it.

Shoot me your cell # and I will give ya a call and you can meet me there if you like. 

Looking to do Oxford a few times with the Blue car, Sprayed it last time home and got a 7.58 w/ 75 shot.  Still need to do some tuning with EFI Live, but if your up for meeting me at Stretch it or Oxford dragway I will give ya a ring with my plans.  Looking for 7.3-7.4 at Oxford next couple weeks (1/8 Mile).  Probably Spray a 125 dry when I swap out my bad WB sensor.

Just ordered the 73 "Phoenix" Factory Hood Graphics...Have the Third Gen Spoiler also coming to the house.  Going to hold off on the side stripes.  SO when it comes out of paint, Hood graphics and Trunk spoiler should be in place...Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Hoping between 18-25 Sept, they still have not given me a quote for paint yet...

I got a place to take it in Oct when I am back offshore for Steering column replacement (Tan one for Black one)Master Cylinder installed then Brake/Fuel lines and probably front Suspension rebuild prior to putting the engine in. 

Can't wait to see the Rear in w/ Caltracs and the Adjustable shocks. Then follow that up w/ Paint should be a great month.

Mid Oct is getting the Cope 727, may have drivetrain in place by Christmas  Grin

Updated Pics from today...

Dropped off the rear, they were putting in the subframe connectors, and they disassembled for paint.




















I have a Black Steering wheel column to put in as well.  That will get done w/ Brake lines/master cylinder installation.




They are going tac weld the subframe connectors in as well as bolt em in as pictured.





Paint done target is still the end of the month.

Have new Rear Leaf Front Perches coming, new rear Shackles, as well as the Trunk and Door weatherstripping...Hood graphic should be here Friday (undecided on if that will be painted on, or if I will use the decal).  Rear Spoiler was dropped off the shop, last visit.  Maybe end of next week for paint  cheers

The Paddock for the weatherstripping.  Bringing the parts up probably Tuesday. The Hood graphic is a stencil, so it looks like that will be painted on, so the "Rally side stripes", may become the rear bumble bee stripe...

Progress!!!!

Heading up to the shop for pics and parts drop off...Entire body is not painted yet...but they have sprayed the door jams and rehung the doors.

They are saying end of week likely. The hood graphics may slow them down though...
