Thanks guys! I'm going to lower the rear 1/2" and see how that looks. I think I'll leave the front alone for now.
The rear valance was just trash so I took it off. The PO had backed into something and put a big dent in it. The heat shield is missing and the paint on the valance had bubbled and popped off. My car never got that hot so I don't understand this. I had one of my fiberglass units painted when they did the wheels so that will go on with the prototype muffler.
The WUR was shot (as expected) so I popped on a freshly rebuilt adjustable one and she fired right up. Went out for a drive and started pushing her a bit to see how the engine runs up top. Above 4K-5K rpm the power would fade in an out. I've never fealt anything like that before. It didn't buck at all, just fell off a few times as the rpm's climbed. Looks like a BOV rebuild, fuel head rebuild and distributor rebuild are in the future. No doubt all are old and crusty. She pulls hard though so has great potential!
