Default Hey all

I am new to the forums. I have been working on my '69 Firebird for a couple years now. Its not the highest dollar build. But its being built as a daily driver, weekend strip runner. It was originally a 350 2bbl motor. I now have a 400 block thats at the machine shop and it goes to body and paint in a few days.

Love the fat sway bar...and it's a convertible, too! I've got the same diff cover and now I have a better idea of how the Hotchkis rear sway bar is supposed to work since I got it w/o any directions. Looks to be like a very fun car when it's done. Who or how are you getting the top stretched?

I am taking the top to a family friend to have him put a new top on with a glass back. I hope it turns out to be a fun car. Its the first classic I have done that I have actually paid attention to parts that affect its handling.

I have a brother that lives in Tucson. I just recently purchased a 64 gto backhalf roller in Tucson and towed back to Texas where it belongs.
