(4) what did you do to the suspension and brakes ? I'm guessing you are running large discs all around and coilovers ? Did you install aftermarket control arms ?

Thanks and GREAT JOB! I wish I had a place to spray and I felt comfortable doing it.....
Hey there, Thanks man! I'm very happy with the finished car.

1: Good eye! I found the Dash inlay on eBay for $99. It is a real piece of swirled aluminum and not one of those stickers most are selling.

2: All I did to the underside was pressure wash it all and spray new undercoating after I replaced the body bushings.

3: I used semi gloss on the carb bases

4: Suspension is pretty stock and completely rebuilt with new springs/shocks/bushings. I installed an aftermarket disc brake kit on the front with drilled slotted rotors, stainless hard lines and new master master cylinder/brake booster setup. I kept the factory front and rear control arms. I just media blasted/painted them and installed new urethane bushings. I see a lot of people swapping out front control arms, but unless they are road racing or something it really isn't necessary. The aftermarket tubular uppers do help in handling because they come with some negative caster already built into them, but there is no problem getting -2 to -2.5 degree out of the stock setup which helps handling dramatically over the factory -1 the cars came with.

Well guys, my GTO sold on Thursday while all the buyers were in town for Barrett Jackson and is off to it's new owner in North Dakota. It was a fun build and she turned out to be a beautiful car. I'm hoping to build another one in the future.

Congrats on the quick sale! Can you ballpark your selling price for the curious?
