looking great! that is where i was about a year ago on my 66. definately an enjoyable part of the resto for me. i just loved watching it come back together and knowing i passed the point of tearing apart and beginning to reassemble. have fun with this part of the project and enjoy your car. looking like 2 more goats will be on the road soon in nj.

Thanks. I started putting on some of the detail tags. Also, when we went to assemble the engine for paint, I noticed that one of my intake lobes on cam was completely wiped. The lifter was cupped too. Nothing like more delays and more surprises. Here's some more pics:

That bites about the cam lobe but now you can get a fresh one with a little more oomph...
Remember to buy zinc rich oil or use the additive.....

Funny thing is, we were just going to throw on some new gaskets and drop the engine on the frame. The car seemed to be running strong, so I never suspected any issues. Who knows how long it's been like that. Better to be lucky than good sometimes.

I am building my chassis right now for my '67 as well. Just wondering since you seem to know what you're doing, should the springs on the back be somewhat loose on top of the axle? Of course there are insulators on the top, but it almost seems like there should be something on the bottom as they seem kinda loose. Just want to make sure I am not missing something before I get it all together.

Also if I remember right you were looking for some unboxed control arms for the rear. Do you still need some? I have a set powdercoated black and am not going to be using them as I am going with tubular control arms. PM me if you need them.

The springs seem loose when you first install them because there's no weight on the rear of the frame. They'll feel tight once the body is on. You've installed them correctly. Although I agree it would be nice to have some kind of insulator on the bottom too.

I actually was able to restore my rear control arms and they look really good. Thanks for the offer.

Another question as I am getting my front suspension together. I bought most everything I thought I needed to get this done and think I have something I might not need. The upper control arm bumper, where does this thing go? Ames part number S131, all the catalogues I see say they are for 64-72, so I bought them assuming I need them. Now I am ready to put them on and don't see a place for them. I take it I don't need them?
