Next Phase - Find out what the PO did to it.

Next thing was to figure out what the previous owner did to this car.
Transmission lines had hacksaw cuts in them, all the wiring was melted from laying on the header.

Installed all new brake lines, new transmission lines, new trans cooler, all new fuel line. Fixed back brakes. Replaced the transmission dipstick, replaced oil dipstick.

Score on seats

Scored 1970 Chevelle SS buckets for $100 bucks. work good but need new skins. Previous Owner had the Japanese Nova seats in. Remember that mess they called a Nova. Crap I owned one for 3 months. I guess this technically is my 2nd Nova :devil:

Console and Bumper Tuck and other info.

On the console, I think it came out of a sunfire and did not shift right. But I ripped it out and installed a B&M Starshifter. We also did the front bumper tuck. Took out the bumper shocks and compressed and drilled. For those going to do this DRILL first then Compress or you will be showered in oil. Turned out good. The back bumper was already tucked when I bought the car. This is going to be my daily driver and my dodge powerwagon for snow/winter. I figured what the hell and put a SS badge on it. I will always own up on it being a clone.

B&M Starshifter



Front and Back Bumper Tuck and SS logo





Added 350 badge and new rims - 17" front - 20" back
