    With a nice black paint job like that you really can't do much to hide bad body work... and that looks straight as an arrow! Good stuff!

    Possibly a stupid/noob question here but what is the reason for the channel over the axle between the tubs in this pic?



    Very nice car so far BTW.

    I think this channel has the shocks/coilovers brackets welded in.

    Very nice! That black is beatiful. Oh yeah, the rest of your collection isn't bad either. I am rather fond of the Vanquish. My brother is in Georgetown, maybe I can come by and see the cars one day when I am there????

    Wow, they've done a ton of work so far! Which shop is doing that body/paint work?

    Couldn't get away from the Fikse's huh? Is that like your 20th set by now? haha

    Thanks guys, I'm really excited about getting done now!

    James, a place called Prewitt Racing did the mini-tubb and shock brace.

    Carbuff, [email protected]'s Collision did/doing the body&paint. He is the same guy that did my '73 T/A.

    Colt, for now, I'm putting in a 450hp 383 stroker and a T56(thanks Tito). It has a DSE narrowed 9" and Baer Brakes all around. Full DSE suspension all around, coilovers/tubular arms up front, 3" drop springs rear.

    Stokes, they are Fikse FM5 18X8.5f 18x12.5 rear. 245'sfront 335's rear.

    I really hope to have it all together by the end of the month. I plan on working on it every day for atleast 4-5 hours a day...

    I think I heard someone mention that Rodney (Austin's Collision) recently purchased a 69 camaro.
    If thatís true, hopefully he will go the PT route with it.
