Got the Ford Racing 3/8" pulley spacer back from the machine shop to have them machine it so that it will work with the 5.0 50oz damper.

Slowly fitting things.

Goal now is to get this thing up and running and all body panels edges painted and assembled, then I will tear all the trim back off and have the body done.

Good luck with the project, working on a 67 GTO with my father. Awesome experiences in store...everything from frustrating, funny, to rewarding.

Thanks for the comps guys!!
The cat loves going out in the garage, but she is not allowed outside, so we got to watch it when she does go in the garage that she doesn't get out when I do.

The HF tranny jack worked without a problem. Although getting the tranny under car was PITB by myself and then getting it up on the jack by myself was a whole other story.
