Things are happening👌👌👌👌 I rebuilt the master cylinder, got to start on the wheel cylinders soon, got a 350 yolk for my 400 and shortened the driveshaft now I just need the conversion joint. I have a new ignition switch and flex fan coming. I rewired the "engine" wiring but I have to wait for my ignition switch before i can wire the starter and hei. Still habe to balance rhe driveshaft but I'm not worried. My next 2 big questions is......
1: do I rebuilt my original rad(slight leak and a flush) because it'll fit with no work or do I order an "assault" eBay 24x19 rad?
2: do I order a performance exhaust off of eBay for 750-1000$ or get a custom exhaust for 1000$ at a shop?

And more stuff but that will be in another post

i would get a new rad off eBay, seem better then the old ones. i would also have a local shop do the exhaust, think it will be less $$$$ then you think.

Plaer, you're singing my song. I've spent about 2,000 hours & way more money than I expected since March of '16 restoring my '57 210 Handyman. I felt like giving up a lot of times but I've had the car since '85 & wasn't going to quit. Now, I'm at the end of the build & all the little details are bugging the hell out of me. One of the last things I need to do is finish the exhaust system. There's a guy who'll bend up the dual pipes to go over the rear to the stock locations behind the wheels. I'm driving over there next week. After that the AC gets plumbed & then it's time for some shakedown cruises. So, hang in there! You can do it!

I called the shop and that's their rough quote, remember I'm Canadian, big dollar difference!😜

Wait I misunderstood what you wrote...
I'm thinking in the long run, the shop may be cheaper, and it's just done!!

Plaer,

Read in one of your posts above that youíre installing a flex fan. Donít do it! Google flex fan injuries and damage. Not sure, but I think people have been killed by them.

Looks to be coming right along. I’m still chasing parts and prepping my car to bring it home.

Small bites gets it done more comfortably than gorging. Just like eating... should try following my own advice once in awhile...😊
