Should be a neat build ... will post pics. Motor is apart, heads being redone, cams are being ground. Car is apart for paint ... I'm having a ducktail, standard tail and a 3.8 RS tail being painted at the same time so I can interchange.

Love how you are getting all the different tail prepared now. I'd so love to switch tails depending on purpose or mood.

Sounds like an expensive project, but the result should be very worthy.

Singer MN car looks to be metallic slate grey with some pearl added.

Best of luck & looking forward to checking in on progress.

with all that do the chassis in full, it won't be cheap, see my build thread in signature.

Spyerx,
Holy cow! You've done an amazing job on your ride. Luckily I've got Tim Olsen from Olsen Motorsports doing up the suspension and braking on mine and he is a master and a great guy to boot!
I'll ask him to check out your thread ... I think he probably has already.
Thanks for the input and I will be reaching out to you in the coming weeks / months if you don't mind. Actually interested in your wheel studs but link doesn't work anymore. Is that company still in business?
Thx

Is question related to 3.8? If so, new Jugs and Pistons.
