are you going to cut the bumpers to get them to fit a little closer to the fenders... or am I just watching too many car shows lol It looks good I like the work you have done on it

Thanks guys! And nope, I am not cutting the bumper. That wide azz bumper is factory for a step side. It is as wide as the fenders that stick past the bed side when you look at it from further away...

Health issues (for me, and a couple of family members) have prevented me from getting back to this until today. I had a carb issue, as noted a few pages back, when I got it running, and swapped to a different carb, but it had a blown power valve, so it was always hard to start, and ran, but not crisply. Swapped over to another supposedly "good" carb, that I got in trade, and promptly had to rebuild it (I hate ethanol fuel). Still popping occasionally through the carb at idle, and poor throttle response. Tore down the carb that has been on it, all looked good, except for the blown power valve, and replaced it. Same issue. The intake was sucking air along the gaskets. Retorqued them, and Sweet times are here. Absolutely no traction through the first 3 gears now...

I still have to finish up the gauges, and finish the side pipes. Then buy some drag radials I guess, even though this is a driver...

I sent this one down the road today. I sold it back to the guy I got it from. Unlike the Chevelle, I lost my ass this time...
