I dunno how $20 does but at a llanteria abot $40 should. By paying them to take the tires off of the 5 lug and put them on the 6 lug and then selling or scrapping the 5 lug wheels lol

It was hot this weekend, I didnt do much.

Just the front brakes. New rotors, new studs, packed bearings, new calipers, new soft hoses, new pads. Did this on both sides then called it quits because it was like a hunnert degrees out.

fun fun fun. Next is the master cylinder, then the rear drums. I might do those one at a time over the next few days if I have time in the afternoon.

He relegated the 74 to the back 40 so his 73 and a Nova could be in the garage. Shameful I tell ya! :D

That body looks to be in pretty good shape. I guess its time to build a shop.

Yes it is in great shape. I had the chance recently to look it over in person and I was drooling...

2 car garage has 2 vehicles in it. Also, this thing didnt move under its own power until yesterday, so driving it around to the front was not a possibility. Now that it runs drives and stops, i'll put some half way decent tires on it, and will be able to drive it to pavement or concrete when i want to work on it.

I always do one drum at a time mainly to avoid feeling stupid when I have a problem with assembly. Having one still complete makes a good reference for people like me who forget how the parts go on the backing plate.

Good to see this one is getting your love. Now the other one will get jealous and demand you fix something. ;)
