    Hah! I wish! I am reconsidering the small block Mopar I have sitting here, though. He's a great kid and I'm glad he seems to be taking an interest. He likes hanging out in the garage and going to the shows. I hope that stays with him as he gets older; my sons both had some interest but would get bored pretty quick when they were working out there.

    I had to extend the sides 2" so the floorpan edge would have something to sit on. I went ahead and painted the framerails and braces while I had access, too. The panel fits good; now to start tacking it down and move to the front half. So far, so good.

    Thanks, Dave. It's welded down every 3" all the way around and it feels rock solid. Now onto the front.

    Yeah; floors are really tedious. I'll be glad when this part is finished. I'm trying to dump as much spare time as I can into it to get it behind me. You're luck you had some solid ones!

    You did it! I should never have doubted it! LOL... It does look very solid and secure, and with all the paint in the cracks / crevices it should be protected for many years to come. Thanks for the pics too! 8-)

    Yeah, it's in there. You were right, though; it wouldn't go in one piece, I had to slice and dice.

    I got the last of the floors tacked in today; now I just need to go around and finish welding the seams. I bought the replacement bolt in panel that goes in the drivers side floor. It gives you great access to everything when it's out. After a lot of thought I also decided to go with a small block instead of the flathead. I plan on driving this a lot so I think a few more beans will make it more enjoyable. Nothing big, just a 318 with a bigger cam and some standard bolt ons, along with this Dakota 5 speed I picked up yeaterday. It should make a nice cruiser.

    Floor looks great, Falcon! I think you'll be a lot happier with the 318, they're a good engine and with the 5 speed should be a good mpg car, too!!!!

    Yeah, I think so, too, Dave. I bought what was supposed to be a 360 a while back but it turned out to be a 318 when I tore it down. The good thing was I only gave $100 for it and it was in great shape inside. I figure I might as well use it; they make decent power and run forever plus it's sitting here right under my nose. So with a V8, 5 speed, 3:73 limited slip, and 4 wheel disc brakes it should be a good mannered highway car and fun to drive.

    Hey falconvan, i have a Wiend 4bbl manifold sitting in the garage for a 318 that you can have for very reasonable price if you want it.
