On the Brink of Season #2

We're now less than a week away from Spring 2016, which arrives Sunday at 12:30am, and the preparation continues. The new battery tray is in place on the firewall, and power will be restored in the early hours of the new season on Sunday morning. We're also now sporting new driver's door glass, replacing the 67 year old original, which was inadvertently broken by yours truly last summer. All the original un-tempered glass will be eventually replaced anyway, just did the door a little ahead of schedule...

Still waiting on a rear end solution. Due to unforeseen circumstance we won't be able to use Alex's 69 Firebird rear end, but looks like we'll have one from a Camaro or Nova sometime in the next few days. Of course, with the new rear we'll need a new drive shaft and might go with a different transmission as well. Still exploring those options, but to minimize downtime we'll have everything in place before we start with the work.

See y'all down the road!
