He definitely is. He's 73, retired, lives about 5 minutes away. Anytime I need help with anything he's there.

Stripping my stock column shift, swap out some parts and clean up new column without shifter. Painted up and put the heater blower box back in. Used butyl tape to seal it to the firewall.

Steering column is in. Breaks are all together with new vacuum booster and master cylinder. Just waiting for an assistant to help me bleed them. Now time to start wiring. I was looking to purchase a rev limiter, but ended up purchasing a msd 6al which has a rev limiter included in it. Why not have better spark and a rev limiter.  Gonna remove the hei module. Getting closer to hearing her run.
