Got my passenger quarter done today. Happy with the results thus far. It had quarters hung a long time ago. Brass, bondo...... Sanded all the bondo off and re did it with some ever coat.. Looks alot better.
So I got my trans cooler and I was assembling my -6 hire and a brand new 90 degree fitting is leaking air when I blow in the hose around the swivel. Can this be fixed? Did I put the hose together wrong? Or is it a bad fitting? It's an aero quip fitting.
Good progress on your 74.
For the dash, if you wanted to redo it in the future (not that you would since it was just redone) you can go the route I did...Vinyl wrap it. It is pretty easy to apply and no worries on the finish not being perfect the first time.
The rear tail panel smoothing looks good. That was the first thing I did when I replaced mine.
And glad you are keeping it a 74. Alot of people give up on them due to the difficulty of finding parts. But persistance and dedication is key.
So I haven't done much on the car since October. I did start getting parts however. I ordered my driveshaft yesterday!! I'm excited it was the only missing driveline piece. The old bucket will if illy be able to move under its own power again...
So today I finished putting the new driveshaft in. I had to get a new pinion yolk as mine wouldn't work with the new shaft. Oh well. I also finished mounting and hooking up my new shifter. Changed the plugs on the drivers side( i did the passenger side 2 weeks ago) and reinstalled my grill and front bumper. Cleaned up the chrome under the hood. I work the next 2 nights and then have work to do on the wife's trailblazer this weekend. So I most Likely wont touch the car till late next week. Here's some pics.
