That looks awfully nice! Makes me really want to put mine on the rotisserie. Keep up the good work.

WOW! Again time fly's when you are working away promised some updates of the car more than 2 months ago.

First off a big thanks go's out to Byron for helping me out to mount his brackets and enlarge the exhaust pass through!

I Don't have pictures of the process as it has been well documented here on the Realm. I did take the time to strip all the old paint off of a lot of the suspension and steering parts as well as the brake/clutch pedal box. I think my painter was a bit surprised at the amount of pieces that needed to be painted (think I counted 4 racks of parts).

Before removing the shell from the rotisserie I formed the brake and fuel lines, so much easier with the car on its side to do this! Then started to assemble the steering suspension and brakes again. I supported the engine and trans on jack stands and rolled the shell over the drive line and lowered the car down onto the components. Man what a treat nothing scratched moved nice and slow and had my wife watching and helping to make sure nothing touched the freshly painted surfaces.

Took it off the rotisserie and put the wheels on and rolled it outside for a little sun!
