Going to finish up the Hurst shifter this weekend while it is snowing out.

Started the interior work last weekend, seems like I have a few things going on at one time.




Stay tuned, more pictures coming.

Well it didn't snow much, but I did get the shifter in. I got so wrapped up in this project that I didn't take any pictures until I was done. I love the feel of it already.
You can always check out the install from Hurst.

Looks good!

That is what I miss on my 2010---my Hurst shifter. I installed a new one on the 68. Your build is really coming along nicely. Congrats....

Clutch Reservoir Installed



I got these nylon spacers from Lowe's. These allow some slack in the clutch line while still using the original hose.

New sunglasses for the Camaro

Well, more like window tint. I had the back, sides and visors on the windshield done. This Camaro has a whole new attitude now.

Yes, High St in Wakefield, but he will come to you if you have a large enough, well lighted garage for $25.00.

Here are some better pictures taken by my daughter with her iphone.






It's pretty bad when a phone takes better pictures than a camera and my camara wont make phone calls.
