Thanks guys. Not bad progress considering I've only been able to work on it about 4 hours a week. Once I get it trailered to my house instead of sitting in my parents driveway, A LOT more will get done even quicker. I have quite a few parts laying around waiting for that moment to come lol.

Next week I'll be looking at fabbing up my seat mounts and also working on the timing a little more. I have an idle vid but it's not uploading via youtube. Found out it has a big exhaust leak at the manifold collector. Just more reason to get a set of longtubes

Threw in a stock distributor with vac advance along with a new cap, rotor, points and condenser. Made a WORLD of difference in the way it runs. Smooth as a top now. Also picked up a new battery yesterday.

Tested the alternator and it's bad so I ordered a replacement, should be here tomorrow.

Went to fix my exhaust leak at the manifold collector and it looks like it's damaged pretty well so I tightened it up the best I could for now and it will have to wait until I order a set of headers.

And I drove it! Plopped in a 5 gallon bucket on the floor and put it in gear and drove it a few backwards a few feet and forwards a few feet. It wasn't a complete driveline functionality test because it has no brakes right now. I've everything to replace the entire brake system waiting to go on but haven't gotten there yet. She should be mechanically buttoned up in the next month or so then it's on to cosmetics

Got a good amount of work done over the last few weeks.

Fixed my oil leak by replacing the oil pressure line. It was plastic and it had a hole in it so I switched it over to copper.

Picked up the other half of my roll cage that matches the one that I already have.

Got a new bumper, mounted it and painted it. Started drilling my winch plate to mount it.

Did some sanding in some areas on the body and the roll cage that had collected a touch of rust.

Fixed my exhaust leak

Replaced my rear differential gasket

And yesterday I started to tear down the rear brakes, I had to beat the drums off which took about 2 hours. Everything inside was rusted and pretty much broken. Drums couldn't be turned so I had to order new ones too. Missing a few small brake parts that are on order then as soon as I get them I'll be slapping them on

Getting close to all of the mechanical items being done. Then I'll be going through all of the wiring and gauges. Then it's on to bodywork and paint!
