Car is looking great. I remember when you bought it - it has come a long way under your ownership!

I got the Chevelle home and happy with the paint and body work. There are some things I donít like but can live with them. The repop passenger door is a pain to get 100% not sure it ever will be. The repop cowl seal is pushing the driver side rear of the hood up slightly so still on the hunt for a NOS cowl seal. The interior looks nice, combo of original and new stuff. All and all inside is ok. The Muncie stick is on a Hurst shifter and works well. The dash pad needed massaging but was able to make the garnish molding fit very nice. All the glass is original except the driver door where a tree fell on the car during the 78 blizzard per the second owner. The original stainless is dent free, polished up very nice and fits very well, happy with that. I installed and old Sun oil pressure and temp gauge set I had and that is helpful given it is a non gauge car. I am not going to put a tach on it I like the plain Jane look. The original engine is bored .060 and runs about as good as any BB I have owned. Canít really say why? When we rebuilt the engine it was .030 over already the second owner told me the oil pump failed when he owned and he had the dealer rebuild the engine. We used a Standard brand L78 Cam and good components but nothing over the top. The M21 I had built for the car and it shifts well. The KK 4.10 is quiet, I am happy with it. I need to work on glass adjustment and the passenger door alignment. Overall I am glad I rescued this rusty dog, it is fun to drive. Here are a few pics. Thanks to Dan Vasic for the help and many returned texts and calls in the pursuit of this build.
