Cleaned the interior, and ordered a magnaflow muffler at 4wheelonline to quiet down my exhaust.

Get the longest case you can fit. I went with 18" case mufflers on my 72. Factory shows 19.5" is what they had stock. I have a 22" case Magnaflow on my truck with two Dynomax race bullets in front of it. Killed the rasp and 99% of the drone. LS engines are known for both - rasp and drone.

Been pecking at it here and there. On the home stretch though. Passenger door is off, bodywork started. Rehung drivers door. And sanding the passenger door jamb.





The toolbag that butchered the bodywork on my car even smeared bondo in the door jambs... WHY?!





Took a break from it today and picked up a Craigslist score, a set of factory 69-72 disc brake spindles/steering arms/backing plates. Going to need them for my 69.

Put in a few hours today, trying to get everything ready for primer. Fixed a few small holes under the hinge... same as the drivers door, not nearly as bad.
