I just have a few miles so far but it seems fine, maybe a little bouncy if that makes sense. I used the KYB gas adjust shocks in the hopes to provide a little more control, so more miles will let me know.

Yep, I think I'll end up doing a 2" drop spindle when I do the disc brake conversion with a 1" spacer out back.

Thanks! Gonna try and keep them, but my son might want something else when he starts driving. We'll just have to wait and see.

Re: New Daily Driver

No real update as I'm collecting parts to swap the 2 barrel for a 4 barrel. I did take a pic of it the other day figured I'd share.

Re: New Daily Driver

I'm thinking about putting a rear sliding window in my truck. The rear glass is scratched pretty badly and if I'm going to replace it I may as well put a slider in it. Has anyone bought and installed one recently? Need a clue to who's building them and which one is the best quality. Let me know what you know.

Re: New Daily Driver

Re: New Daily Driver

Looking into disc brake upgrades and I am interested in Performance On-Line (POL). From what I can see I can get a complete 4 wheel disc kit and add their pre-bent hardline kit to simplify the installation. I've considered using CPP's modular spindles to help with the front track but I figure I can adjust for that with control arm length or wheel back space. Does anyone have any experience with POL?

I don't have experience with POL directly, or with their brakes, but their gas tank I have from Brothers is nice.

I would recommend the CPP modular spindles and brake mounts (separate item) for more wheel lip options. They fit great on my 71 and I see about 1/2" per side. I didn't take measurements before and after, but it's close as I measured a few witness marks on the inner fenders from old setup to new. I ordered them from a board vendor, so no hassles dealing with CPP.

If you want pre bent line, Right Stuff Detailing (getdiscbrakes.com), classic tube and inline tube are good sources. I believe they all have regular steel and stainless to choose from. I went with Right Stuff stainless on mine. Fit great!

Were the brake lines you bought a direct fit to the master cylinder, or did you have to bend your own? Which vendor did you use?
