Progress on my car has been slow lately. Due to the recent death of a close friend (who also owned the shop that did a lot of my outsourced work), I just haven't had much drive lately. Our recent record high temps haven't given much incentive to get out of the house either. Got bored today and broke out the camera and took a few pics of recent work and parts.

I will be ordering my rear suspension this week and should be getting my rear housing out of my friends shop sat.

Pics of line loc, prop valve, and rear parts:

Not that particular one, yet. But yes, I have driven on the street with spools.

Few more pics of some new stuff.

1- Control arms. UPR uppers and lowers. I looked at a lot of cars and did a lot of research before buying them (got a smoking deal on them too). For the lowers, I got the ones with sway bar mounts because a ARB didn't seem like a good option for me (street/strip car, didn't want to have to crawl under the car to drive it, pot holes are like land mines around here).

2- Hood. Found a 4" bolt on semi locally. Also picked up some aluminum hood pins because I don't trust the latch area on a fiberglass hood.

3- Rear cover. I have had this for a little, but snapped a pic while the camera was out.

What made you go with a moser cover? I'm looking. But they all look too similar for my untrained eye.  Thanx!

Except for the gears, all my rear end parts came straight from Moser. If I'm not mistaken, its made by TA.

Work on the coupe has been a little slow lately. Due to a second story fire at my parents house, the occupancy of my house has grown by 2 and the car has taken residence in my back yard (was locked inside their privacy fence).

- Got around to getting the hood lined up and the pins installed. That was a pain in the ass, on both counts. It took me about 3 days to get everything lined up like I wanted it. Even then, that cheap ass hood only fits OK at best.

- The new rear end is all together. Thanks to Dale (BirdMan) for coming through with a pinion yolk after mine walked off. The spherical bearings are also in and I upgraded to 10" drums. I'm "supposed" to have 3 days off next week, maybe I'll be able to finish welding the torque boxes and get the rear and new suspension installed.

Wheels and tires are going to have to wait. Too close to Christmas to be dropping $2000 on car parts. Gonna try to find some JY wheels that will fit until then. At least the car will be mobile so I can break in the gears and do some other things I have planned.

oh.... The cheap hood sorrows. I feel your pain. I had about a 1/2 gap on one side, and was about 1/2 higher than the fender. :

Mine isn't quite that bad. Mine is about 3/8" on one side and 1/4" on the other. Without the pins, mine was about 1/2" high on the front drivers corner.
