Spent some time cleaning the core support brackets etc....the ac accumulator was black lolPosted Image

Decided I'm not installing my charcoal canister back on the core support.

Think I would rather put a rad overflow in its place.however I don't want to smell any gas fumes so it will go somewhere else less conspicuous...maybe?

Yesterday I scored a nice set of lemans grills,I didn't like the luxury lemans grills at all.these were 70.00 bucks of CL

He wanted 50 but I try to be fair,had I had 100 on me I would've paid that..Posted Image

The thought was to paint these black,I love the 72gto/lemans grills(t-41option) the depth is what I'm after,and I don't want the weight of the gto front end

Hmmmm maybe ill add the fender extractors off the 72's I've parted lol
