Great, Thanks Tom.  I am going back and forth between the fathom blue and a dark gunmetal gray with the black bumpers, wheels, wipers and door handles.  I wonder if they do shaker cans as a test color sample.

On your 3rd question yes you can have a driveshaft shortened if you have a welder you can do it your self 

 

Here is a diy video


A coworker asked me what its like restoring my car I told him its like going to the parts store once a week to buy one part for five years until you have enough parts to build a whole car and then put it together with no directions !

That's what I thought too. I have shortened driveshafts in the past with no problems .

Thanks guys for the info.

 

Update on car:

 

I have not taken the car to the speed shop yet.  I will be stopping by next week and see if they have a timeline for me.

 

My restorer guy is rebuilding a posi rear for me as we speak.  The goal is to have the car at my buddy's and get it running, front brakes looked at, trans looked at, front wheels aligned then move it to the restorers garage for the installation of the rear and possibly having the driveshaft shortened and installed.

 

I have been scraping the primer (from a previous owner) over spray off all the windows, will be cleaning out the interior of the years of dirt and grime.  Also, will continue chasing wires next week.

0000 steel wool works great on glass to take overspray off.  Works on chrome as well.


I prefer to drive short distances....1,320 feet at a time

Powdered coated the front bumper in satin black as a test to see how it looks.

 

Also had the cowl panel sand blasted since there was layers and layers of paint on it.

Hey guys,

 

Looking to hook up the alternator so I don't kill the battery.  I can't seem to find the manufacturer of the alternator, no name on it, just two sets of numbers.  Here are the numbers on it:

 

One side:  2011/06-1-7

Other Side: 61344056

 

 


I did get the plug, one black and one blue wire.

He just needs to know what type it is , if it needs an external regulator or not, and what to hook, the 2 wire plug to for temporary till he buys a new harness

Looking at the cooling blades on front I was thinking its meant to spin counter clockwise which makes it wrong for this engine
