    A couple package deliveries later, I have more parts on the car

    Front Konis

    Cutting and flaring lines in the engine bay sucks while the engine is still installed...

    I also made up a couple brackets for the rear flex hoses at the calipers

    Here they are installed, and you see the rear Konis too

    I kept the right axle tube mounted chassis hose and reused the axle hard lines from the original 7.5
    The new brackets hold the connection between the new caliper flex hoses and the shortened hard lines.

    It's pretty tedious bleeding brakes solo when you forget the racecar bleeder bottles at work, but I got it done enough to take a short test drive from the flat stall onto the lift.

    I'm going to need to do that too.

    Progress looks good!

    What engine is in this thing?
