Looking good. Going through the same process with my '66. Also used all Moog suspension components. I am also putting in a full floor pan. Where did you get your floor pan? I have one on order from Original Parts Group but it has been on back order for 4 months. If it is not delivered soon I will look elsewhere. Just curious if you had a better supplier. Thanks!

Chuck,
I decided to go with a Gardner exhaust.
here is a pic of the tail pipe. I went with turn downs. I am not a big fan of the trumpet tips
I am using resonators too since this is an 400 turbo trans with A/C.
I believe all auto trans cars had resonators

Thank you! I will see if it is in stock. The price is also better than OPG.

Paint
I was going to use Sikkens BC/CC waterborne but instead used Valspar BC/CC solvent.
I was very happy with the results

Thanks for the pic. I like the trumpet tips myself but was wondering if I should put the resonators in front of them like the factory had. Now I see where the resonators reside, I'm not sure the tips would come out in the correct place. there is actually a small radius in my stock bumper that appears to accommodate the tips and it is aligned directly under the frame rail, if memory serves...

Thanks again! That is going to be SWEET!

Chuck

P.S. I've got to get mine painted! That color is killer when new and shiny!

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
