    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!

    You're more than welcome.  It is often that another set of eyes/mindset can troubleshoot things better than the one experiencing the problem. 
    The main reason why I am on this and other forums, as well as my wiring refurbishment business, is that I really enjoy trouble-shooting from a distance.  Having a detached perspective (e.g. a dirty mind laying in the gutter) and helping people out gives me great satisfaction out of life.  That, and a good brand of whiskey...

    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:

    Agree 100% with this.  I personally talked to Shaun multiple times before deciding to buy from him, and have heard the same about John and Sherri.  Shaun talked through all of the options, multiple times and I never once felt I was being sold or pushed to anything I didn't want.  I ended up with his full coilover setup with Street valving and Unisteer PS and COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.  Can't go wrong with either option and for sure they will have something to fit whatever budget you have!

    Coilovers i would look at Street or Track, Shaun is great to deal with he develops and uses what he sells.
    Upgraded stock style you can also look at Street or Track or Opentracker Racing, John and Sherri are both great to deal with.  Give either ORP or SorT a call and talk to them about what you are trying to accomplish with your car.  They won't steer you wrong and won't over sale you something you don't need just to make a buck.

    Didn't mean to give you more work, HAHA.  Good thing is, its not a hard job!  I am very happy and actually feel safer on the road, as I have heard many stories of people not being able to see the brake lights on our older cars.

    I too installed the Vintage LED set up recently.  You can see it is pixelated some compared the stock bulb with just the lights on. But as bright as they are, I should have done it much sooner and VERY HAPPY with the quality and ease of install of the Vintage LED product.  I did the front turn signals and back up lights as well.   Here is a quick video as well of the, it does flare the camera a little as bright as they are, but I love the setup.  I also like that when you hit the brakes it can do just solid and on sequential.

    Its pretty "basic".  I am running Street Or Track coil over setup up front and adjusted to the height I liked and needed for clearance (Damn long tubes).  The rear is mid eye spring with 2 in lower blocks. Fenders were all rolled at body shop when it was in for paint to make as much room for the larger tires as possible.

    Hey TexasEd, 
    I like your overall vision statement as mine is very similar with a bit of a lean towards the Pro-touring/Restomod vehicle.  I wanted more modern drive and conveniences of a modern car, but had to keep the original body with some slight changes that don't stand out drastically, but to make it slightly different.   
    A quick list of modern conveniences: 
    Vintage Air AC
    Unisteer Power Steering
    Cobra Disc Brake upgrade
    FiTech FI
    TKO600 Transmission with Hydraulic Clutch Setup 
    Upgraded Radio with Kicker Components 
    Street or Track Upgrades Suspension 
    TMI Covered Foxbodies in Mach 1 Upholstery 
    3 Point Front Seat belts
    LED tail lights and Halogen Headlights 
    Body Changes: 
    Removed 1/4 Panel Emblems
    Removed Trunk Letters 
    Removed Rear Wing/Still need to add Front Spoiler 
    Paint Whole Hood and Cowl Flat Black 
    Paint Tail Panel Flat Black 
    Painted on Side Stripe with Body Color Showing through for striping and MACH 1 lettering 
    17/18in Bullitt Wheel Combo

    Understood.  You could possibly do the same set up just use the Carb Regulator.  If you ever switch to EFI, just swap out the regulator.  
    And yes the right PTFE is not cheap and I did get the good stuff as I read the same things about the pin holes.  Certainly didn't want that issue.
