My Husband's Mad Max Interceptor Project

Here is the new 8" axle in place with new springs, and shocks. The axle was built with an Auburn Posi unit and 3.25:1 gear ratio. All of the brake components are brand new including stainless brake lines from the Master cylinder to the new wheel cylinders though the lines are not in place in these pictures yet.

The new gas tank was looking nice too. It is painted black underneath and we left it galvanized steel in the trunk. We also put a new filler neck and gas cap on it. I went with a 1967 gas cap instead of the 1966. Why? Because I think it is a better looking cap!

Next we replaced most of the chrome on the car. Both bumpers, the chrome around the grill, exterior and interior door handles, window cranks, all knobs and switches, a woodgrain instrument cluster and glovebox door, glovebox installed, new automatic shifter, driprail chrome, front springs and front shocks, tail light bezels and gaskets, front turn signals, and back-up lights were all replaced with new ones.
 
The grill had about 4 layers of paint on it so my husband stripped off all of the paint down to bare aluminum and repainted it. Here is a couple pictures from that task.
