Hi All. It's been a while since the last post. Time to give an update. First of all, I received most of the sheet metal I need to do the necessary repairs and mods to the body. Have a look at the pics, it's time to get busy! AMD trunk pan, AMD trunk extentions, gusset, US Cartool frame connectors, AMD manual conversion hump. Started fitting the trunk in today. With everything here that I need now, I'll be posting more frequent updates with pictures.
I also ordered my transmission 2 weeks ago.
I ordered a TKO-600 5 speed pro conversion kit from american powertrain, I'm very anxious for that delivery! The only thing I left out of their kit was the pistol grip handle - I want the OEM hurst look, so ordered a repop of that off ebay with the 5speed lens - should be saweeet. hope to share pics of that by end February.
And, I've been talking with my local machine shop to get things started with the machining of the 440 block. And, have been talking to the guys at 440source for the stroker kit and other bits for the build. Man, I can't wait to put that together...
