Today's progress, install contacts for the door solenoids, hang one door and install the wiring cover for the upper steering column.

Re: Brother's keeper - '58 Stepside build

Back on the ground, I actually DROVE the '58 out of the garage and gave it a quick bath. I also got the doors adjusted so the gaps are right and both sides open and close with ease.


I also changed the sway bar links, using a set for a '70 Charger which were 1.5" longer. I think lowering the front suspension messed up the geometry of the stock Nova links, causing them to tip back. Now they sit straight up and down.

Re: Brother's keeper - '58 Stepside build

Working on a front brake upgrade today. Stop Tech drilled and slotted rotors. Baer pads, Timken seals and bearings, all new hardware. I removed the dust shields for better air flow...
