Hello region 10.... how is everyone? just wondering what everyone has been up this summer and how all the project's are comming? As for me I have been enjoying all the warm weather that has come our way this year. As far as the elky goes i pulled the engine on mamorial day n striped the block down to nothing and the plan is to bore it out and build a 383 so ive been working lot's of overtime for part money. so there she sits in my back yard. i would like to fix some of the other things that are wrong with it but then it takes away from my engine $$$$ so she just sits. So how's this summer been for you n your elky?????:poke::poke:

Uneventful to say the least. Last weekend I got the underside degreased and undercoated. Its been way too humid to do anything outside for the last few weeks.
Glad to hear your making progress! Better get that thing running first, and then concentrate on the other things.
did u make it to the ccnats today?

Sorry this is so late. I have been out of town. I have everything for the A/C I just want to eliminate the hose going over the engine. I am going to go from the compressor to the front of the radiator across and then back.
It may not get done this year. I usually have the windows down anyway.
Thanks for asking
