Looks great, won't be long before the LB starts going on! And good planning with the deck lid and cowl panel.

Received my parts back from Steve Gregori @ BrakeBooster.com - they turned out awesome! Booster (before/after pics) and related components are original to the car. Booster is a 9204 dated the 199th day. The ZL2 / horn relay covers and turn signal housings are also original to the car. ZL2 coil bracket is an original piece from Bentley B. Steve also did my hood hinges and latch components - also turned out great.

Default Another update....

Picked up my subframe and rear end today. Another step in the process! Took a pic of the rear mounting hole for the subframe showing original floor pan color and remnants of the sealing tape Fisher Body used for their water test. The shop will get the body on a rotisserie and get to work on the floor pans. Dents from a driveshaft explosion and the Hurst Super Shifter mods need fixed. I'll start stripping the subframe and documenting all the various paint daubs as I find them.

Default Subframe teardown...

Started tearing down the subframe over the last few days. Brake lines and stands are original pcs. The flex lines from the stands to the calipers were replaced in '97 if you go by the date on the hoses. Calipers, springs, ball joints, and sway bar links were also changed. Everything else on the subframe is original stuff including 2 pc. rotors brake shields, caliper mtg brackets and steering components. I do not have a picture of the car that shows it without traction bars. Took one snubber off (other one is still stuck) and it shows a date code of 1971 so I'm guessing they've been with the car since then.

More stripping/cleaning of the suspension today. Found some "ice blue" overspray from the 1970 paint job on several of the steering linkage/brake components so that confirms to me these items are likely original to the car. Also was able to find a few inspection paint dabs that I can replicate later. Found orange, blue, white, yellow, and pink in various places. Anyone else find something similar on their cars?
Glass beaded one of my disc brake dust shields. You can see where the original AD sticker was applied. It cleaned up nice......any opinions on if I should just reinstall or get them re-plated?
