      Joris 69 chevelle budget build

      Helle everybody. Im Joris and im 23 from Ontario
      im here to post my 1969 chevelle project. Its my first american car and my first project to this extent. Im farm mechanic so ive got access to space and lots of tools. Im mostly learning as i go and researching things but figured id share and hopefully receive some pointers and advice here too.
      i picked up a 69 chevelle malibu this April 2021 after having wanted one for about 2 years. I wanted a rough and cheap one since i knew id be redoing the whole car anyway. The previous owner had it since 72 and was forced to sell due to changing properties and having no way of moving the car really. It sat parked outside for about 20 years so its a rust bucket. It looked better on the ad but after a 6 hour drive to pick it up there was no turning back. Got back home at 4am and back to work at 7 haha.
      Blue exterior. Blue interior. Original 307.
      Quick project overview.
      bought an fresh build ls2 with forged internals and a custom cam.
      F-body T56 that im rebuilding at the moment.
      straightened and repaired the frame. Then boxed and braced it with 1 3/4 pipe. Then galvanized. I have yet to confirm it didnt warp during that process
      rebuild 12 bolt posi with 3.55 gears. Seller told me it was a 4.10 but i recently discover its a 3.55 or something close to that.
      all tubular suspension of mixed brands. Aldan american coilovers.
      all try to post some pictures in my second post.

      First question i have is regarding the steeringbox. Mine has a non power steering box with 3 mounting holes. All the fast ratio boxes i see have 4 mounting holes. Do the 3 line up and can the 4th one be drilled in? Or is this a totally different gear box??

      you don't need the 4th hole ..leave it empty lol. Being as you're 30 mins down the 401 let me know if you have any interest in brand new ceramic coated headman headers for a ls a body, and or a ABC performance weld on clutch slave bracket also brand new . might have a few other goodies . if you need a fabricator i work for beers lol

      Frame is back from the galvanizer.
      I was really worried about warping but it came back straight.
      Bolting up the front suspension now
      Ive used the drum brake hub on a disc brake spindle. It requires a 1/2 bushing on the top bolt hole to mount the laser cut plate. Then i can bolt up the 4 piston cadilac brembos. But i still need to purchase rotors yet too.
