Tie rod bling

Added some new CPP billet tie rod connectors. Not sure they will do much but they look nice.

Update

Thought I would post some updates I did. I installed a new MSD ready to run distributer along with a new MSD blaster coil with wires. Didn't need wires but came as a kit so why not. After the install I was ready for a ride. Didn't need to go far to know to something was wrong.Motor started right up and ran good but didn't have any get up and go.At this point I started searching the net and changed the springs to the light ones and that helped but knew there was much more to be found.I read a thread that John,AKA sbc1320 wrote so e-mailed him on what his thoughts were.He told me what to change and boy does it rip now. I went 18-18 Never Knew much about curves and learned something new!Thanks John!!! Next on the list was a new carb. Replaced it with a new Holley 750 vac sec. The motor has never ran this Good!!! Also replaced my leaf spring bushings with Detroit Speed poly bushings and there heavy duty shackles.The new OEM ones were shot after two summers.

Thanks Jim, I wonder how many people like me put in a new MSD without setting any curve. This thing rips now. If I can help just one person with posting its worth it!!

Try a MSD E-Curve distributor. Forget everything you know or thought you knew about setting curves. It's completely backwards. That's another thread.

Your car is amazing and I hope mine turns out as well as yours. Right now I have to find a place to bunk for a few days since the wife is peaved that I read all 27 pages over dinner.
