Default '69 Firebird Build

1st post on the site, I was referred by another member.

I am 3 years into a pro-touring/restomod '69 Bird build.

Here's a few pics...

Started with this (after removing all the bad stuff):


This is how it currently looks:



Over 500 pics here: http://www.69firebirdbuild.com/thebuild.html

Just got my drive shaft today. I plan on re-installing the rearend and getting the drive shaft in over the next few weeks.

Welcome to PZ. I am impressed with your attention to detail and your documentation of your builds. Thanks for sharing your work and photo's. It will be one sweet ride when you are ready to take her down the road. Keep up the great work and I will be checking your photos as you go!

Thanks guys!

I am currently getting the drive line squared away. The rearend is a Ford 9" so I had to set my final pinion angle and weld the spring perches on the rear. Once I took my measurements, the rear had to come back out to be welded and then it went off to the media blaster and powder coater.

The powder coater called last night and the rear is done (matte black) so I will pick that up today. I hope to have the car rolling for the final time by the end of the week.

My 3.5" alum. driveshaft from Inland Empire showed up yesterday.

I should be ready for final wiring soon.

Phil
