It's a 3inch beam with adjusters and dropped spindles. I've changed the wheels to smoothies withstock caps and trim rings.

Hood and fenders got a quick sand and spray tonight. I am sure I will have to redo them but the car is now either green or patina (not including the decklid)

I still have to figure out the popping and jerking problems but I will get it.

Just got it fixed. For some odd reason something was telling me to check the distributor so I went out and hooked up a light and started looking again. First I checked the firing order to make it sure it was correct and it was. Next I pulled the cap off and inspected it. And bingo I found the culprit. The piece that rides on the rotor was missing. I dont even know how the car was running at all to tell you the truth.... So I replaced the cap with another I had and the car fired right up and ran just as good. Took out for a spin and all the popping and jerking was gone..... So next.......

Cool, I'll post some of the bus as I do stuff to it, but it'll be a while as I have to let the piggy bank fill back up.

This is why the car was popping and jerking the center piece in the cap was mia

Here is a couple pics of the quick sand and paint I did in the dark yesterday. I am def. going to redo it but at least the car is more matched now except for the decklid....
