Fort some reason the chassis pics say file too large so those will have to wait...but they are reunited. Engine trans going in...maybe tomorrow!

Some of the chassis photos. Can't get the rest, and I have little patience for computer nonsense!

Did you have the old springs retensioned?

Here's a tip!

When mating the TH425 and the block back together, MAKE SURE that the torque convertor is ALL THE WAY IN. It seemed to be in, but it wasn't!

I was getting interference on the trans case and then saw the small relief cut that GM put on the case. Another 3/8 inch or so deeper went the convertor and now all is well! :D

The interference was from the flywheel just to be clear...

Looks great! Still a long road yet, from one that has been there. I noticed your torsion bars are painted the correct color (maybe you just cleaned them carefully). Did you know the rear springs were actually the same color when new? I checked mine very carefully when they were apart and sure enough, same color. Probably same manufacturer.
