I picked up a windshield today out of a cabby, seems to be the right size though. just waiting on the seal now

Installed some new front rotors

started on wiring hooked up head light, tailights, wiper,

installed the waterpump, and coolant hoses.

tried on the wheels with rotors and adapters i seem to have about a half inch of poke in the front

two cans of black dye made the carpet look brand new

Thanks Guys,

hearing the engine actually run is major motivation... I'm ready to drive this wabbit! (but first i'm making myself finish some bodywork on the oval)

i have ordered cv boot kits, shift linkage bushings, and a one piece speedo cable to keep the bay fairly clean... all should be here thursday...

now i still have to tackle the wiring...it needs sorting out really bad...and im still trying to find a repairable early dash so i dont have to swap everything over...(plus i like the look better, early dashes look more olde skool)

basic todo list
bleed brakes
finish wiring
find early dash
2 more adapters and tires
exhaust
rebuild axles
get windshield in

i have plenty of time to finish the body work, but i also want to have time to drive it and check for problems, still have plenty of time till hooters, so we'll have to wait and see

received my one piece speedo cable (keepin the bay clean as i can) and some shifter linkage bushing
rebuilt the axles (new boots)
Sily Räbit - The SwallowTale - Page 4 DSCF7099
took a little time to bring these home from my uncle's
Sily Räbit - The SwallowTale - Page 4 DSCF7103
then i installed the axles
Sily Räbit - The SwallowTale - Page 4 DSCF7115
Sily Räbit - The SwallowTale - Page 4 DSCF7116
then i drove it (without brakes!! which are next on the list) idle needs some work, and the water was from the flange on the head, one of the bolts broke off in the head, once i get it out there no leaks Very Happy also it doesnt have an exhuast yet, just manifold and down pipe:roll:

update...

the swallow now has fuel...well, more permanent fuel, as in the tank is in and fuel lines ran...
some progress on the electrical as the car now starts using the key and does not involve a jump wire and screwdriver Laughing
turn signals now work aswell as the single wiper...doesnt help the driver a great deal but it does look sweet!
rear running lights are also a go!
im waiting on a rear wheel cylinder and a participant to help bleed the brakes
i also removed the 4 point brace as it was killing my ground clearance...

need the windshield in badly
still have to decide if im going to a cabby dash, if so i need a gauge cluster
pics...
