well i did a little work on the car tonight. i removed some more of the interior and cleaned it out. i also messed around with the old emblems off my GSL.....




not really sure about this one yet!



the car will eventually be painted and refined, but i figured i'd mess with it a little just to see what i liked or not.

Well I got the motor all cleaned up from the oil pan and omp leaking all over it. Also changed out the spark plugs with better ones, replaced the oil filter, new oil cap and installed the omp block off plate. Still have multiple parts and gaskets coming in the mail and plenty of work to be done.








the new lug nuts


had to get spacers so the carb would fit then had to install longer studs

took the water pump housing apart to be sand blasted and painted






I've got a box of parts that will be sand blasted and painted hopefully by this weekend. I'm hoping to have the motor ready to be installed soon!

the original main pulley has a little stud where it mounts to ensure proper alignment for TDC. i'm going to not the new pulley so i can find TDC without installing the old pulley when i need to do so, however i will keep the old one around for such a thing!



carb spacers, carb, filters and pulley fitted.

also took the front bumper and fenders off so i can sand and paint the front end as well as the engine bay. working on labelling everything as this will be the 1st time i've taken everything out of the 7's engine bay. should be easy to remember where it all goes seeing how this is my 5th FB.




when it comes time i will also be eliminating a lot of the wiring to clean things up a bit!!!
