Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

I finished plumbing the brakes today. Baby steps lately but I can check this off of my punch list.

Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

The last of my Holley Brackets showed up today. I had originally intended on keeping the truck brackets and intake but now I'm going with the Holley bracketsand an LS3 intake. Now if I could find some time to work on the truck that would be great.

Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

Today is a happy day for me. My 66 Chevelle that I have been working on for the last 2 years finally left for paint today. It has been on hold for over a year while I was trying to find someone I trust to paint the car. It has been a nightmare and I didn't think this day would ever come. This meant I needed to move some stuff around today, so the C10 chassis saw daylight for the first time as a true roller.

Good looking parts and nice work on the brake lines! Congratulations on finding a body and paint shop for your Chevelle. I agree, the chassis looks good sitting out.

Man these tanks are cool pieces. I wanted to raise it in the chassis and Todd (Shores6) hooked me up with these Energy bushings. Thanks brother!

Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

I also test fitted the Holley brackets. I'm impressed how nice they look. I think we all want a vintage air front runner or a Billet Specialties Tru Trac but I can't justify 2 grand for an accessory drive. This stuff is perfect for the price!

Thanks Keith..Chevelles are my true passion, I have had a dozen of them over the years including my high school 66 that I owned 4 different times. I tried to buy it back right before I bought my current 66 but the guy I sold it to knew I had an emotional attachment to it and he priced it accordingly i had to pass on it and I went out and found my current car.
