UPDATE ON MY 69 Z/28 NEW PICS

I had another thread on here that I posted when I bought this car so I thought I would update what has been done so far. After I got this car home and on the rack I was looking it over under it and I saw the rear shackle bushings were wore out and the leaf springs had some stress cracks in them. So I put new springs,shackles and bushings and added sub frame connectors also. I went to the front and this car still had the factory ball joints in it. So I put tubular A arms on it along with new springs and shocks. So now all of the suspension is in good shape. I have a problem with the wiring on the car so I have a complete new wiring kit for it and I have the dash and all of that apart now so I am hoping that will get me in pretty good shape with it. I also put 8 inch rally wheels with M/T tires on the back and 7 inch on the front with M/T tires also. I have enclosed some pics for you to see so I hope you all approve!

As far as I am concerned...
There is no other car that I lust after as much as a Hugger Orange 1969 Z/28 ..
It would have the RS package as well.
4 speed..
Well done brother..well done!!
