Yep I went way beyond that.  I'm in I'm a redneck and I'll win territory now.

That didn't go well in 1865. Thankfully you're in a better position with a much more noble goal, so I have faith in you

It's a fine line sometimes but there's a difference between a redneck and a dumbass.

Headers should be in today. The Kevko oil pan is well not even built. I called before ordering and they were like yeah as long as you don't want it zinc coated we can do it quickly. Their website said 3-5 days. I ordered last Monday so I called them this Monday and dude said they'd get it out that day or Tuesday. Call today and dude remembers me calling but says they hope to build it next Tuesday. I understand labor shortages and all but tell me upfront it's going to be two weeks before shipping.

Ok rant over. At least I'm not building an Atlas. I hear you have to order custom pans from Jaguar for them.

I'll adopt you.

In reply to 759NRNG :

Yes the 68-77s were called sugar scoops because of the rear window treatment.  Those are the years I perfer with the major differences between them being the bumpers and side scoops.  Perfect for me is 72 because it was the last year of the chrome bumpers and the year I was born but I'm damn happy with a 77 right now.  No plans for a spoiler and yes I bought a wix just for you last week.

Magnaflows after the axle.  I like them.  Kind of turns me on.  No H pipe but might do one after my new headers.

In reply to 759NRNG :

They are out of Minnesota.  I started looking for pans and found Kevko.  Text Michael to see what he recommend and he said Kevko.  I doubt his taste in wheels but he's pretty good on other stuff.  Figured I was already on their webpage so that's what I went with.  This one should be 2 inches shorter than what was on it and 1 inch shorter than stock.  I figure I'd rather other stuff hit before my oil pan.  Plus sexiness.  And to follow up on the shipping time Kevko got it out before the long holiday weekend so they beat their last estimate.  It's sexy.  I might sleep with it tonight.

We didn't get to far this morning before it got to hot. We got the passenger header loose but need to take some of the steering and/or the starter out. This afternoon we have rain so this is how it sits.
