Hi All! I'm glad I've found this site. I really appreciate the vibe and wealth of information. I wish I'd found you guys a year ago.

I'm more of a novice with regard to this stuff, but I'm having a ton of fun putting this bird together.

It's a "10 footer" paint-wise and had a tired '75 400 in it when I got it as well as a bunch of other issues. Originally it was a 6 cylinder 3 speed car.

I found a '68 290HP 400 engine (YE with #15's out of a boneyard Bonneville). It also has a BW ST10 and 3:50 posi rear end now.

Thanks again!

Thank you Brian!

So I bought a 100' roll of 6 mil plastic, 2x4'd up an 11'x23' area in my garage, added some good lighting and a couple Costco parabolic looking heaters...and tunes. I really have no excuse not to make progress! Apparently I forgot to plug in the last set of lights yesterday.
