Sub frame connectors all welded in

I only had 1 bad j clip in the rear spring mount, lucky i had one left from when i did the rear in my 67

The back of the frame connectors are bolted and welded , fronts just welded im debating if i should also drill holes and bolt them

Nice Tom, but I don't really think you need to worry about bolting the sub frame in the front as the weld should be more then good.

Ok progress!

I scored a full ac system, original used shift cable, nice undented used wheel well chrome set

So the transmission now works!

Exhaust is mocked up and hung, just need to get tailpipe hangers and tighten everything up

Im running the jeggs stainless 2.5" header exhaust, true duals and stainless, wife wants quiet so for now we are running manifolds lol, so measured the header length on the 67 and made adapters to go from manifold pipes to the headers in case we ever do go with headers

Using the jeggs fake magnaflow chamber glasspacks, actually sounds nice especially at idle i was real suprised

Wife is itching to take her around the block lol
Original used shift cable dropped right in unlike the oer one that broke

Wow, I am surprised that my car swayed someones opinion on what color to go with...lol I think you will be happy with the silver man. Do you know what color silver you are going with? Mine is Mercedes Benz Brilliant silver. I have the color code if you are interested.
