    Both nice cars, I like the name on the dart; I used to use blending clear on the last couple of coats, always went off semi matt, but after a polish the shine never went away! (good stuff)
    Just a passer by as you might say.

    back to the valiant, i ordered a motor plate yesterday from dave billadeau. i'll be removing the k member, torsion bars etc anyway when i install the tube axle so i need somewhere to hang the motor from. it'll stop me worrying about the rubber mounts breaking too so win win.

    it's been a while and lots has changed re the valiant. firstly the 383/727 has been sold.
    i need to get the garage up over the road from my house on the land i bought from my neighbour. this needs a slab of concrete to stand on and selling the engine will pay for that. my thoughts were i can always buy another engine later on but i need the 2nd garage to store my wedding car so.....
    anyway friday i'm collecting a 318 small block from leighton buzzard and on the way home a toyota supra 5 speed manual box from ilford. the mopar bellhousing, flywheel and clutch will be collected once it's out of the only other 68 valiant in the uk (coincidentally) that's getting an sfi approved bellhousing etc for racing. i'll need a toyota centre plate for the clutch but i'd rather that was new anyway.
    all of this still leaves enough left over for the concrete slab as i have a cement mixer and can do it myself with only the ballast and cement to buy (already got 5 bags of cement for £10 the wife found me on faceache.

    today went very well. even the excursion into n/e london. i usually avoid london at all costs (i'm just too impatient) but sometimes you just have to and this time it went well. maybe i was just driving more sedately as i had the 318 in the boot of my little c class merc already along with spare heads in the front footwell? then the box on the back seat and the poor old girl was weighed down. it was fine, i've had 2 (at the same time) 350 chevy engines in it before so.....
    got to get my wedding car out in the morning so i can back in the garage and unload it all. pics tomorrow.

    I love a bargain. I just bought a nos boxed set of +60 flat top pistons for the 318 for £55!. Cheap, cheap
