    Finally got my voltage regulator I’ve been waiting for since last year.  I got racing seats for my 2016 Viper ACR E so I might reupholster those seats in white w grabber blue stitching & install in the GT350. Shelby worked on the Mustang & Viper so it’s not a big stretch.

    Started back on wet sanding the lower nose. First time this year I've been able to do anything on the car. Had minor surgery back in March, still recovering but able to do more now. Also tied up with having the kitchen completely remodeled, plumbing reworked under the slab, electrical rework, new cabinetry, the works. There probably won't be much progress on the car for a while on anything that will take money to accomplish. I will continue on the things that I can though.

    Went with the smaller round lights down below. Added cut outs for the LED Audi A4 front marker lights. Wet sanded with 230 wet and re-primed using some leftover spray bomb primer. Most of that will get sanded off.

    agreed, I tried to base my wheel setup on this chart when I started to pick out wheels and tire combos, but soo many ppl had different set ups, its hard to collect that much data as every year a new kit would appear. 
    Im happy with my setup 18x9/10 245/40 275/40 with SOT Front Coil Overs and Grab-A-Track 4.5 Mid Eye leafs with Vintage Venom's brake kit:

    Whilst the body is away, I’ve just started to  have a look at the engine. I know it’s a ‘69 302, from engine tag, but other than that no knowledge or history.
    never rebuilt a V8 before, so time to learn.
    Any tips  you guys can give would be appreciated, thinking of going for some Aluminium heads to wake the engine up. Might go stroked as well.
    any tips/fed back on what works best, parts etc  would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I have 2 garages at my house, the upstairs one, where the proper cars are, and then the downstairs garage that my wife calls the "black hole".   My other garage is a 22 foot enclosed car trailer where my '68 Mustang currently sits until I get the '70 done.  It is a great place to hide all kinds of stuff like firearms, cool tools that she won't understand, fishing gear, and tons of car parts.  I also have a bunch of vintage Shelby art n the garages and my office, like the poster on the left with the blonde Shelby Gal with the Cowboy hat.....  I tell her it is just some vintage "advertising"...    "yeah right" is the response...    Thank God for the haven of the man-cave.....

    30 years of collecting crap will get you this. Built the big garage 25 years ago, took a while but its full. Added a "mezzanine" when my company moved us out of our building, let us take anything we wanted, got a lot of cabinets, shelfs, etc.

    Don't know about the smartest nor richest (I'm broke lol) and I bought a field to plant this building and house in, I am sick of raking leaves...

    ... unless those trees did produce money, then I might plant a few dozen...

    I upgraded my shop recently, went from 1,500sqft to 2,400sqft out in the country away from city taxes and such. You really don't know what all you have until you have to move it in one week. Went from nothing in the way...

    ... to having to get everything under roof. Our old property sold rather quickly and our new place was on the verge of being completed. A month and a half later, things are starting to get put in place, but there is still a bunch of stuff to go through before it is completely opperational.

    Got to get the lift put back together and finish wiring the rest of the building, construct the restroom and small office, go through some more boxes... this is taking forever.

    Hey Noah, welcome to the site.  Sounds like you are building a beast.  What are you going to be doing with the car, cruising, drag racing, auto cross?  That might be helpful to know.   Also, any time anyone asks about suspension I recommend they call and talk to Shaun at Street or Track.  He is great to talk to, very knowledgeable and no pressure to buy his stuff.  He will just give you the info you need for you to decide.  Plus his product are top notch.  I am running his front set up and disc spindles on my car.  Have no complaints. 
    Keep the updates coming and progress pics are always welcome!

    Quick update, the car is still in the body/paint shop, progress a little slow,  but some decent  progress finally being made now.
    Panels all lined up and the doors had a lot of work on them to retain the original skins.

    I was being optimistic to be fair, but I have aligned most of the panels and striped a few down to bare metal.
    Major jobs are the Door skin to change,  hood front to sort (minor dents) and the repro fender to sort out.
    my guy is pretty fast and he has capacity now, so that’s why it’s gone a little earlier then I expected it 
    he re-painted my Mach 1 about 12 months ago so I know his work.
    Just need to  decide on paint colour, I’m really torn on colour, Wish me luck
