Here's a few more about them. I have a bunch more including the court documents in the trial against Edgerly. It's 19 pages long though...

I posted about that when I found out that Butler was my 69s original dealer a few years ago. Pretty crazy. I'm not surprised though. There are large mob ties all around the area. Think Whitey Bulger etc. His crew was only 20 min east. I read a few things that said there was suspicions of mob involvement. With the kind of money they were talking I'm sure there was. I grew up not far from there.

Looks great Hakan! I wouldn't use anything but that Felpro gasket. They work great for me. I just used factory bolts. They were plenty long enough. I like your stud idea though.
Thanks, Dave!  ;D
I agree regarding the FelPro but the original bolts wasn't long enough for me, especially the two for the chain cover! This is the 1884R-gasket, which ine did you use?
I wanted to use studs due to the aluminum block, I'm afraid of over-torqueing the bolts and then destroying the threads... ::)
Hakan,
The pictures are huge. They timed out before they loaded - and I'm on a kinda fast connection. Anyone else having that issue?
Not at all Kurt and I'm on a pretty slow connection. I love the large pics to see the details. Especially Hakan's. He's a great photographer.

Haken,
 I used the 1884R also. Hmmm. I've heard others have the same problem that you did also. I don't blame you on using the studs on that block!!

Other than Steve Shauger, and maybe Hawk, I am not sure if any of the other H.O. guys have their cars in a state to "cruise" them.

Maybe if they are getting towed behind a float in a parade?

So many H.O. cars out there, still in project stage.... :P :-X

( is this reverse psychology ploy going to help them get on it?  ;) )
Not this year. She was all tucked away in the garage. We had a couple of flakes yesterday morning so you never know if the county is going to throw down salt....

It's dimpled. I recreated it on mine by carefully using an air chisel with a blunt rounded tip. I couldn't believe the a/m floor pan was so different in this area. Not even an attempt at being like the original. Other than that area, it was pretty nice.













Someone had used a screw that was too long at one time and poke through.

Here's my factory hood and fender also. My fender seemed to have gotten pretty decent coverage on the back side. My hood was the standard color top and sides, black primer bottom with over spray.

Guys, looking to pick someones brain on removing wiring from tach and gauges on a 69 BB auto that did not come from the factory with them. Car originally had just fuel gauge with auto on floor console. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Doc. 
Mine wasn't a factory auto, but maybe I can help. I got pretty intimate with my gauges, both console and dash. Let me know what you're looking for specifically and I'll see what I can do.

I like the Seymour brand EN-48 'Chevy Orange' .. works great for the engine, but of course will burn off the exhaust manifolds pretty quickly... (which was what happened originally with any paint on the exhaust manifolds)...

Here's one of my motors with Seymour.

The spoiler didn't have to be non-factory added to fill in the holes. That could have been done at re-paint which is likely the case whether it was added or not.

yes ok.

But for someone who had it installed at the dealer after while, does the dealer was relocating the emblem, or simply throw it away ?
Probably depended on the dealer, but I wouldn't be surprised if they left it off.

Mine as no emblem at all. I'll have a look tomorrow to see if the 4 holes are there under the spoiler. So correct me if I'm wrong, but the dealer was not moving the emblem at all, just deleting it, right ?
This was done at the factory.
