Hi all, I have a 71 RS. I have owned it since 1975 but it has not been on the road since 1979. A couple months back, I finally decided to finish it. I did much of the work many years ago and have parts in boxes purchased back in the 80's. Good thing as prices sure went up. Its a resto mod. Don't care about originality as I will never sell it - and I want close to 500 hp. One thing I noticed is that there are certainly lots of aftermarket parts available. This has made it easier to do now than 20 or 30 years ago. The motor and drive train are done as well as the brakes and body. It's in primer and all original except some dings I had to take out of the doors from years of storage. 30 years ago I shaved the door handles and removed the trunk lock. I also molded many of the body panels together including a 3 piece 73 spoiler. It has alum sub frame bushings (lowered a little). Huge Addco sway bars with solid links up front. Frame connectors and Jbars. New 10 bolt posi rear with 4.10's, rear discs, and a shaft loop. It's a small block 30 over, TRW forged pistons, forged crank, 69cc heads, windage tray, 4 bolt high tin block, holly 780 df vac, street dominator manifold, headers, hefty cam flat tappet hyd. 30+ years ago I purchased new control arms and springs from a GM dealer. That was also a good time to look for parts at bone yards. I found a WS6 TA with 5k miles on it. From it came an original Borg Warner T56 speed and the 13 to 1 steering box and 3rd gen brake booster and master cyl. I also found low mileage 2.02 angle plug heads. I had made the 6 speed fit with a DIY setup but after recent review - there will be exhaust issues. So I just installed the G-force member - awesome fit and stronger (cheap enough and easy install 229). I bought a 99 c5 in 99 and decided to use the clutch setup from it so I purchased a complete hyd clutch setup for a C5 from GM and that's all installed with a light flywheel. I replaced the speedo and tach with cyberdyne guages that I bought way back as the trans has no cable option. They are mounted into the original dash (a project). Centerline forged polished alum wheels 9.5" with 245 17's all around, Same size tire as the c5 fronts. I just received new leather seats from Summit. There is so much more history and parts - I will stop now. I'm working on electrical and interior now. Need help/ideas on how to paint the rear upper dash panel. So close to a new windshield (40 years old but new) and no room to repaint it. Not sure how to do it. Brushing may be the only way. Needs to go black from brown as the dash panel has already. I also should say thanks to posters on this site and it's creator as it's already been helpful! Using the wiring diagrams tonight.. Thanks!
