I went ahead and ordered a set of the blue stripes based on all your peer pressure. :-)

Did you also spring for the blue bird decal that was found on the back spoiler? That would just finish it off.

No. I left that out of the order. The car was completely stripped of emblems when I painted it 25 years ago. That tail bird would let on to what it is. I like to retain some mystery.

One of the guys on the PY Forum posted this photo of the factory order guide color plate for the stripe, on blue paint, no less. Looks like a match for the shaker decals!

I had mentioned that I ordered the brake lines and the passenger side vent/return lines. The order arrived yesterday.

This is what I ordered from The RightStuff via Jegs:

FIN 7401 front-to-rear brake line
FGL7502 2-piece pass side vent line 1/4"
FGL7503 2-piece pass side fuel return line 5/16"

What showed up was:

FIN 7401 front-to-rear brake line
FGL 7501 2-piece driver's side fuel line 3/8" (same one that I already installed last week)
FGL 7502 2-piece pass side vent line 1/4"

They are shipped directly from Right Stuff so they were the ones that messed up, since the invoice showed I ordered it properly but they boxed up the wrong parts.

I called up Jegs and they told me to box up the FGL7501 and return it to them on their dime. But they aren't shipping out the 7503 until they receive the return. This is kind of pain in the butt since I have to replace the vent and return lines at the same time as they route together with the same clamps. So that job is on hold for the time being.

So What I did today was replace the driver's side front to rear brake line which was kind of crusty looking. I also replaced the rubber brake hose that goes from the rear differential to the steel line. I bought the AC/Delco replacement. The car still had it's original hose and it was not gonna budge from that fitting. I pulled the entire line out with the hose attached and then had to place it in a vice to get the hose off. This was so I could recover the bracket that bolts to the frame and secures the hose assembly. All in all it took a leisurely four hours including brake bleeding.

Looks great.

Do you still like the Summit cam you chose? I have an old Ultradyne 288/296 and a new RAIV cam with Rhodes lifters, can't decide which one I want to use in my 9.5:1 455, but I'm inclined to order the Summit cam instead.

I do like it. Great price. Great low and mid range power and lopey exhaust sound. Much better than the 455HO 068 cam. The RA4 cam would need higher compression to get good power, and at a higher rpm range (something a 455 doesn’t really have).
