    Progess has slowed a bit, (busy at work) but just got my engine harness and ecu back from a guy that customizes a stand alone - he did a great job, not sure if you can see the details in the pic, but I highly recommend him, his link on ebay is http://www.ebay.com/itm/252448487636...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Gas tank installed. Will be making some modifications to this and adding a fuel reserve tank and a couple of aeromotive a1000's.

    Took advantage of Painless Performance's year end $150 rebate promo and picked up their customized GM 28 Circuit Chassis Harness.

    They aren't kidding that this is "painless", gotta love the fact they even label the wires!

    Just picked up a column shift, tilt steering column from a local retired guy who refurbishes and rewires them for a hobby. He's done some nice work and at $200 saved me about $500 over buying an Ididit column!

    Another vote for them here! I have more than a few pieces of their stuff on the Riviera though I've not used their tube or flex joints, just the silicone couplers.

    Thanks!. Wow, an Art Morrison frame... that will be sweet. I'm looking forward to seeing those pics in your thread. As for my build, I have extra motivation, my oldest daughter is getting married this coming October and I want this completed by then, including rechroming, interior and paint. Wedding and the build, 2017 is going to be an expensive year!

    It's funny, you're going towards air bags and I'm going away from them.... I decided to have Art Morrison build me a frame, and the thought process is Corvette IFS/IRS with tires that make the tubs proud. Glad you're moving forward and I liked your FB page.

    Well, after having to my project on the back burner for the past year as I had to focus on opening our shop and getting it off the ground (https://www.facebook.com/3rdShiftMotorsports/?fref=ts), it's now time to pay attention to the Buick and get some work done on it... just snapped a pic of the low profile oil pan, as this is going to be riding looooooow
