Got the trans fixed in the 5th, governor valve was gummed up and stuck, and since the trans was out I yanked the engine out ro repaint it since all the paint was flaking off

And while it was out I also put a aluminum 4bbl intake on, block hugger headers, and throw a small cam in, but I still need to order a k-car brake booster to put the badass fab valve covers on

And when they call em block huggers...theu arnt lieing
And since the k-frame drags on the ground, I had to run the exhaust above the tie rods, which was not an easy task, it may not look pretty but it works

I also swapped out the front springs since the chrome ones did nothing but break and resealed the front cylinders

And I bought a pair of rear drop coils and chopped a extra pair of fronts to get it closer to the ground
