Out with 3.89 gears and in with 3.50. The 9" is pretty easy to build. The pattern was a pain to achieve though.

New seat covers. Headliner. Recover the dash, Painless 24 circuit electrical. Make sure driveline is good.... check clutch( McLeod Street twin) add a new hydraulic throw-out bearing. Needs a new master and run the line better. Stroke the 454 to 489. Get rid of the Merlin heads and add AFR Magnums. Brake upgrade( Blazer) to include all new lines. Fuel injection ( FiTech Mean Street ). Ill think of more. I have most of these parts....some are on the car already and need a little attention and some is going to be new.
This is the last time I do this. It hurts too much to crawl under the car but I think I can build it one more time.

OK. More stuff done. Managed to get all of the seats out. This is a first. And my biggest surprise was the date on the foam from the back seat. July 30, 1979. Love it!!

For a street machine. Oval. The Merlins on the car now are oval. I set the MSD digital 6 box rev limit at 6200. I like the car to make all its grunt down low.
