Re: Blue '71 Project

Welded up a crack in the edge of the hood and that small hole in the hood bracing I had forgotten about before I primed it. Then started to block the engine bay..

Re: Blue '71 Project

Finally found some time to work on the car after having to replace a bent rod in my Acura after it sucked up some water during a heavy storm.

One has a tag on the barrel saying 14"?? Measures 15 across the face on both wheels
Wheel diameter is measured from bead seat to bead seat. So if you're measuring the entire face of the wheel from rim to rim and are getting 15", they are likely 14" wheels.

Re: Blue '71 Project

Filled the heater core holes in the firewall. Will ultimately go with a vintage air system down the road.

But yeah, I liked the color so much I bought some cast iron color engine paint and painted it. You weren't kidd...

Once I got the engine torn down, I found out the L16 pistons were in pretty poor shape and were unusable. I ended up getting an L18 bottom end from the guy I bought the car from and built it instead. The block after getting it back from the machine shop. They honed the cylinders, surfaced the deck a...
