      *Update*

      I have been working on the air control lately.
      Not finished...

      Stripped the engine and did some cleaning. A lot of work but I'll think the result will be ok.

      A BIG shipment from the states arrived today.

      Some goodies..

      More...

      Sebring sports exhaust to give the engine some sweet noise this season

      More engine parts and J-tubs

      G-Caps... red of course

      New rust red door panels

      After some hours in the garage today the engine is almost done.

      Recap.. it looked like this after the fire

      auto or manual?

      and that engine looks fantastic, especially compared to what it was before

      wow yea that engine looks amazing. the best thing about those engines is how easy they are to get out and rebuild.

      Got my batteries today. I am going to mount two them under the backseat.
      One for the starter and door poppers, and one for the air ride etc.

      Yesterday I got the dual battery isolator.

      The engine is now assembled and I only need to connect all the hoses.

      Installed the engine last night. Without a scratch *puhh*

      The time is running from me guys. I am supposed to be finished with this car for Bug Run i Mantorp/Sweden, which is 6-8 of June
      If all parts arrive in time and nothing is happening I THINK I am going to make it

      I also ordered a upgrade of my air suspension some days ago.

      5 gallon tank (the one I got is 2 gallon)

      Two Viair 380 Chrome compressors (got one 280 Chrome today)

      Stay tuned!
