phew, looks nice... I didn't have it in me to do my rebuild this thoroughly :-) not yet anyway...
I think you are doing the rightthing, not mounting the poly bushings... I have heard so many times that people install them and they squeek or the car feels too stiff and funny...
Ignition & Induction.

LOL.  I have unfortunately put this one one the back burner.

My 77 SE 4spd just had all of her metal replaced with NOS metal. so it's on the back burner now too.

My 79 SE is coming together nicely. I'm just getting it back together.

The car is almost finished. Was just painted with an amazing paint job. Rebuilding motor and starting assembly.
