The trim on the back window looks excellent. Guessing they are not reproduction trim pieces?

Hey!

Yes they are reproduction pieces. The trick is to strategically add a couple extra studs for the trim retainers to fix any issues after determining the problem spots on the initial fitting.

I have an original set, but they really need a polish. These reproductions fit well and I can't tell the difference from my white fastback with original trim - other than the new is shiny.

Seam seal brushed on interior and primered. Hopefully get it painted in the next couple of weeks. I am not used to having someone else do this work and neither is the pocket book!

Indeed - very nice.
It is great to see your build thread move along.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Clear coats are done. Doors, decklid, hood, front and rear valances next. Then some color sanding and polishing.

Next month I am going to put the front and rear suspension back on. I am gathering parts and bolts/fasteners to get it all together.

The rear axle is ready to go and so is the engine. I ordered a Modern Driveline TKO 600 with the trimmed top to fit without cutting the floor pan supports.
I will let you know how that fits!

Colour looks great. Looking forward to the driveline updates.

Any pics or specs on the engine? We all like a bit of engine porn.

Hey I will dig up a couple of photos of the engine.

The engine has the Edlebrock aluminum heads/performer intake. Then a comp cam (will look up duration and lift).
I am going with the aftermarket repro cast iron cobra jet exhaust manifolds, the shorty and long tube headers seem to fit well or are a real pain. Delzaro from Australia on the concurs forum used them on his 390 convertible also a few others too and they were happy with ease of fit and performance.

I did not stroke it as I am not looking for a tire roasting beast. Sometimes too much horsepower/torque can make the rear end harder to control. I am looking for a moderate increase in performance, drivability and some good handling.

This set up should produce 400-450 BHP.

The rear axle is the original 9 inch with 3.5 limited slip. I am still using the rear drum brakes. The front I am going back with the factory style power disc brakes.

I have been ordering parts and have a large pile of stuff. Larger front sway bar, stiffer front/rear springs and KYB shocks. etc. Nothing crazy as I am not going to road race it, but want improved drivability. I did get that electric assist steering and am excited about not having to route the old power steering lines like I had to do with the white fastback - and eventual leaks!

My plan is for the first week of November to take a week vacation and get the suspension and the engine transmission into the car.

Then later in December I will put the headliner in and next will be the front/rear glass with trim and the fenders, hood, deck lid and doors. The guys at the shop can help me so I don't scratch any parts trying to wrestle it all together by myself - wife doesn't seem interested in helping and for the sake of marital bliss ... 😍

After that I can bring the car back home and get the wiring, interior and the engine running, etc.
