    My wife came out and took evidence photos to show who made it not black now....... It is black in low light situations. It's cool to me. It reminds me of the car it was when I was little and then it changes to what it is today.

    Now it was time to clean up all the front suspension and paint it to make it look new again. I modified the lower control arms and the uppers just got scuffed and scratched over the years. Clint cleaned the rack up and I let him shoot the cast steel part.

    It is the dash's turn for modifications. Years ago I purchased a stash box made by Hot rods by Dean. I planned to put a radio in it back then, but I'm not sure what I'll put in here now. I also plan to make a full length console from the dash to the trans tunnel and back to the seats so there will be plenty of room for things.

    The kit allows you to make the stash box removable but I decided since welding was required to put it in anyway, I'd just weld it in. Once I had the box installation complete, I had to make the decision to fill the original radio hole or not. I opted to since a radio won't fit there now and chances are I may not run a head unit in this car any how. I plan to use my phone and use an amp and a blue tooth receiver and amp to run some speakers. That's way down on the list though.

    I primered the dash with 3 coats of filler primer. Now I need to block it out and shoot it. The filler pic is just an old inside joke to me. My old boss would chew my butt for wasting that material. There was always a project setting there that extra filler was spread on so it never went to waste!

    The last pic shows the car now having complete hubs with packed bearings, caliper mounting brackets installed and calipers on for tor the first time in years.

    Now it was time to put the trim back on. That was a bit nerve wracking but I got it done. I only replaced 1 piece and that was the LH rear quarter piece. It was a real bear to get the clips in to it but I finally managed. I also got a new deck lid emblem. This car had a blue one on it when I got it but Deluxe cars should have had a red emblem to match the rest of the Deluxe badges.

    It was time to start running lines. I started with air lines so I could get the car in and out or load it on a trailer if I had to. I just used nylon DOT black tubing and compression fittings. I picked up an air bag controller that has a wireless remote to control them. I might change that to a wired unit but we shall see. All the remotes in my house disappear so I'm afraid this one could have the same fate.

    I haven't painted my garnish moldings yet so I just put the front door ones in so I can roll it outside. I wanted to wash it before I started wet sanding it to buff it but I didn't get the chance that day.

    Finally some other pics outside.

    Looking really, really nice! I was wondering when/how you'd handle the transition from black to metallic blue!! It's gonna be sweet, especially with that diesel rolling smoke!!

    Looking good! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    If you're not wanting a traditional dash radio, look into marine units. Many have remote head units with smallish control boxes that can be mounted anywhere. The one I have works good, but doesn't have a CD player. I use USB and Bluetooth.

    Looking good, keep at it your almost done. The last year on my 9 year build I did at least one thing a day to my truck, it may have been just tightening a nut but I made it a point to do that every day (almost) . Looking forward to see the rest of it.
