Ignore the steering box, it came with the car, ive got power steering to go on, also added today was the battery tray and engine mounts, also put the id tags back on, this car is now trully saved and destin for some white line nightmares.

I love that VB...why coz its the closest thing i can drink that looks like V8.

Hey man great looking engine bay! Looks like a very nice solid body to work with! Wish i had done the same to my bOb. I dident go to town on mine since its a daily driver and was in very good shape too. but i have rebuilt everything on the car and is fun as hell to drive, your going to love the outcome when your done!! At the time when i got my car i dident have accsess to a computer for ebay etc.. and i used 1989 Ford truck headlights for it. Are the XC square units hard to bolt up? where do they mount exactly? Can you post some more close up pics? Hey whats wrong with good old manual steering? If the front end is new and tires arent to wide and there new too, its really no differnt effort in steering. To me its one less thing to break later on. Cool ride like to see more pics!!
