I just looked around for some nice retro gauges and came to this:
If I'll get this I'll get a KPH instead MPH speedo custom made by classicinstruments.
and well, I found some classic hot rodding looking rims - Eagle Alloy 225. They come in 18x8 (fronts) and 18x10 (rear).
now finally some updates!! back working on the monte carlo again. last week I received the frame back and started painting with POR15. I'll coat it with few coats of POR15 "Rust Preventive Paint" and finish it with POR15 "Chassis Coat Black".
frame's underside painted with POR15 rust preventive
yesterday I sprayed the inside of the frame with some rust protector. its a kind of grease / spray lubricate that keeps away rust and water. I put the rear back together just to see if all parts fit. I'll replace the stock rear end with a 8.5" grand national or better with a ford 9".
now looks like I ran into a problem with boxing my frame - the BRP T56 crossmember looks like it doesn't fit anymore because I closed the c-chanel of the frame. I looked at the instructions because I still don't have the LS1 in hands to check fitment with just the engine and transmission. instruction says I have to drill new holes to get the crossmember fit. so looks like the passenger side goes onto here something like that:
is that right?
ok so the other side SHOULD go in the c-chanel right?
