    That's awesome if you don't mind me asking roughly how much have you spent on the restoration so far?

    FINALLY got to take it off the jack stands and take the wife and grandkids for a spin. Got more to do but it's all down hill from here.

    Replaced transmission with the older version of the T18A. No longer have a problem with it jumping out of gear. Going to rebuild and have as a spare.
    Replaced diff covers with some chrome ones. Just enjoying it this year, taking grandkids to the creek and the wife for evening rides.

    Awesome build! So clean, except for the engine block and intake manifold they look dirty and rusty. Everything else is so clean and new looking? Don't take it the wrong way, it's more than I could ever do.

    NP, that's one of the future items to do, rebuild the engine. Plan to have it dipped so it can be painted and stick.
    Also plan on improving the braking system and front drive shaft, already done the rear drive shaft with a Tom Woods CV type.

    Grand kids are the greatest aren't they. Wifey and I had a hoot with ours until they got old enough that hanging with grammy and grampa wasn't cool any more.
