  1. Pulled the motor in feb. had it fully gone over and got the compression down to 8.5-1. That’s so the 8-71 can run on pump gas. Topped it off with 2 Holley terminator stealth efi carbs. These have been the biggest problem all year. Trying to get the time right and evidently there isn’t many people running these on a blower setup and Holley’s tech have tried but have given up. We have it drivable but needs some tweaking. Efiexpert did a remote tune session a couple weeks ago and we are going to change distributors and do another remote tune. He has been a wealth of info.
  2. Dyers 8-71 455 bored .040 over. Dual Holley terminator stealth EFI. Hope to be fully running by the end of the month.
  3. She's back together. Went for a cruise on Saturday. Ran great and really happy with the chrome. Thank you guys for the kind words and following along.
  4. Sorry for the inverted pictures the last time. After 13 weeks chrome is back and really nice. Everything is back together and brought it home today. handling new chrome is alittle nerve racking. That front bumper is in 6 different pieces.. ill take some good pictures in the near future. thank you steve
  5. Thank you for the compliments. I'm hoping next week sometime I will get the call to pick up the bumpers and misc trim pieces. Went to visit the car today so here are some new pics.
  6. emailed the chromer to check progress. Get a email back saying it is now 16+ weeks from drop off instead of the 10-12 when i took everything there. The reasoning for the extra time is that they got busy after i dropped my stuff off. So I get bumped for someone else. I drove to see the manager because i wanted him to explain to me with a straight face the extra time. Wasnt there when i arrived. So i left word that i stopped by. thought about the situation and made the trip back up a week later to pick everything up. Now everything has been stripped and copper dipped. So no picking up.
  7. Getting closer. Trim on oneside is back on. Chrome is still about 4 weeks out.
  8. I was watching the mecum auction and there was more ,no sales then sold cars. Some really beautiful cars but the money wasn't flying around.
  9. This how she is today. Paint is 75% done. Chrome is scheduled to be done the last week of feb. I ended up not shipping the chrome out. Shipping one way was $500. I chose a place 40 min from my home , Librandi's chrome.
  10. Spectra chrome idea sorta died off. Knox custom chrome has very good reviews and i have called them twice and are very nice to talk with. hoping to be around $2700 for both bumpers and front hood trim plus the tail lights.
  11. I picked knox chrome from tennessee. I hope to get everything boxed and wrapped up by midweek and sent out.
  12. the 3600 is about 6weeks and the 3100 is pushing 12+ weeks. I have 4 more places im waiting to hear back from. i have a buddy looking into spectrachrome. He does powder coating . So i thought this could be a nice add on business. Told him if the process works and holds up i would buy half the machine and we start chroming america.
  13. Since the wagon is getting new paint over the winter, I want to get the front and rear bumpers rechromed. My front is perfect except about a quarter sized flake and the drivers rear has some wrinkling. No rust. So far i have gotten $3600 and $3100 quotes. This is a real eye opener.
  14. they flow into the backseat nicely. I like a big tire so they were a must. Keep looking at them, they will grow on you
