Getting Closer!

By birds4ever

Whew! 15-months and counting since the bird came home! This has certainly been an undertaking! The work has been extremely pleasurable, however, dealing with 'other' entities has been a nightmare!
I've made some pretty important change-ups since I started. The subframe is no longer the stock one as you can see. I went with the Heidts new subframe with Pro G suspension and also their bolt-in 4 link rear suspension. This should give the old bird some pretty good handling.
Now that it is back from the paint shop (still waiting on the front clip), assembly is as great as everyone says. It's really a lot of fun to see it coming together.
Hope everyone is enjoying their project as much! Later!
