Hello gents!  it's been a long while since I popped up here.  I've busy between growing my CNC machining business and the family.
I have bunch of b-body stuff that I know I'm not getting back into so I need to clean out and make space.

First thing is the 96 RMW. $5500
This car has been painted back in 2011 and never driven in snow after that or driven much for that matter.  It has been sitting outside under the cover since 2014 when the brake line popped.  It needs a new good home.Some history.  The car was purchased somewhere around 2008 time frame and was a long ongoing project.  The goal was to go through the whole thing and restore it while doing few alterations to improve appearance.   It started off as a Black estate wagon with 190k on it.  The car was fully stripped of all the parts and trim for paint.  We deleted wheel well trim and body trim for a clean look.  Doors and hinges were removed for proper finishing of individual pieces.  Front donor wheel-wells were sandblasted and repainted with sealer primer.  There were few typical rust spots in the quarters and in the front driver floor.  These were repaired with new sheetmetal and resealed with non hardening undercoating.  The whole under body was wire-wheeled and undercoating reapplied.  Roof rack was fully removed for paint and reinstalled with few new rivnuts and stainless hardware with sealant to prevent any leaks.  All the trim and rack pieces were painted separately.

SPID label decoded: Here

Countless hours went into the restoration process.  I'm sure there are few other details that I missed.  As mentioned above, the car needs a new break line.  I would rather not deal with it due to lack of time.  I have a trailer that potentially could be used to deliver this car depending on the terms of the deal.

I will be making a separate post for my old race car.  It has a full racing setup drive-train but the body is no good.  At some point I wanted to take the drive-train from it and transfer it to the wagon.  This setup with heavy body went 12.9 sec in 1/4 mile.  There is also all black interior with 6 way bonnie seats from this car.  I would love to move all of this stuff as a package.

Some of the highlights:
355 rebuilt motor
30lb injectors
847 cam with all crane components
Grey metalic powdercoated accessories
Powdercoated RAISS cold air intake matched to the cowl hood profile
Sunocast fiberglass cowl hood

Heavy-duty front end components
White/black painted dash surround
Black dashtop cover
Z28 cluster /wiring
Clear corner markers
front license bracket
Black impala replacement grill

2 MT ET tires mounted on 15x8 steel rims.  Still bunch of life left in them but they have been sitting for few years.

These are my old parts for sale threads.  Bunch of the parts are still available.  Time to let it all go, make me an offer
