    Building cars is my hobby supported by my day job as an electrical contractor. Summer cruise nights are the best!

    Let The Games Begin

    Well I see it's been a year since my last post. There should be a thread for slowest build. Seemed like a good time for an update. Paint is done except for the hood and the glass is in. Might even drive it soon

    They did that for me so I would not mix them up, I have a bunch of parts from 240's and 280.s if you need something I'll try to help

    remote oil filter help needed

    I was concerned about exhaust heat affecting my oil cooling and the messy oil changes. This is how I did a remote oil filter on a sb 350

    Sometimes I wonder why it takes me so long to do a car and then I spend two days making one hood latch. The good news is there is only one to go! Just roughed out for today, need to disassemble and paint etc.

    Lets see your V8 in your Z.

    Not exactly ready for prime time, but at least it's off the floor! Starting to look like it might actually run!

    Custom trailer for Z-car?

    You really really don't want a single axle trailer, 1 flat and you're done. With dual wheels you can change a flat without a jack, just pull up onto a couple of 2X6's and the other wheel comes off the ground. I've trailered cars all over the East Coast and dual axle trailers are much better behaved, not to mention each wheel has a brake so unless you're towing with a dualie you won't get pushed around!
  14. Impact socket with a good air gun and it will come right off
  15. I had the same problem. Check the angle of the mounting tab to the base. If its not 90 degrees then there was some warping during welding. Gabriel replaced mine no problem.
