Thank you guys. I hope till new year I wll manage to remove body from frame.Planing to put disc brakes kit in front, but I don't know what will be the best solution,maybe some of you has already disc brakes and you happy with them! And what will be the best solution for suspension, maybe you can give me info.
Already did blasting on fenders, doors and hood. I will send some more pictures of my progress on the my Tempest, as soon I will get back home from Amsterdam. Thank you for interested in my project and your help

Amsterdam...always wanted to visit there...

On the front disc conversion try GM single piston calipers like this...
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices



On front end you will want new ball joints, outer and inner tie rods, new bushing (poly), and a center link to tighten the steering up.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

these two upgrades are stock parts , affordable and will provide good performance for street use. there are plenty of aftermarket suppliers that have high performance kits if you seek more but they can get rather spendy....

this will help with block ID and where to find the casting #'s

Engine I.D. and Codes

, also we need to know what the #s on your center head exhaust runners are to figure out compression

looks like it has been updated to HEI distributor trans looks like a TH400 auto

a word of advise, find a machine shop that knows Pontaics or can follow the directions given to you on here by the engine guys to a T, Pontiac motors are built on different principles than chevys and do not respond well to being built like a bowtie, thats why they get a bad rap. A correctly built Pontiac motor will thrash a comparably built chevy of similar cubic inches.
