    Hi again everyone,

    Got the car back from paint about 3 weeks ago, installed the body decals and took her to two car shows. Finally got some good pictures of her driving and i think she looks pretty nice. LED head and tail lights (aside from main headlight bulb). Its nearly complete, just have to fix the speedometer needle, figured out someone put a 78 speedo in it so it has the wrong needle. Ordered a new one and some gauge overlays to do while I'm at it and some orange LED strips for the dash illumination. It's been driving nice but has been fumbling when it is hot out, i'm pretty sure it is that accelerator pump seal. Only a week left before i go to college so i guess carb rebuild will be at Christmas. Just wanted to share some pics with everyone.

    That's nice. Too bad the pics are not 800x600.

    Nice! :cool:

    Where did you get orange seat belts and what did you use for a dash bezel overlay?

    Belts and overlay

    Seat belts I sent to seatbeltplanet and he wound them in the original housings. Was like $200? He couldn't do the retractable back seats so those are lap belts but no big deal.
    The dash bezel color is a decal. autografics.com is the site to go for that.

    Being a Tennessee fan, I love that orange. I ordered a pair of 3 point rear seat belts from Seatbelt Planet a couple of years ago. I don't know why he couldn't make some for you.
