They handled panel, prep, paint, exhaust, suspension and the engine installation, but subcontracted the interior to Adrian at Kool Trim, once they’d sourced the basics.
New pews were ordered, sans foam and trim, from Glide Engineering of Rancho Cucamonga, California, while a rear bench was custom-fabricated between the tubs; both were sculpted and trimmed to match.
But as often happens in build stories, the EJ ended up being a better car, so the roles were reversed.
Chris gave the EJ a quick lick of paint and a set of mags, then set about cruising.
All the while, Daniel and the team at Fast Lane Speed Shop were working on the body, tidying it up for paint.
Uncle Nick had installed some huge holes in the engine bay to fit the extractors, but the boys recommended they be filled and new headers manufactured to suit.
“I pretty much bought the wheels first up, and got Fast Lane to build the car around them,” Matt explains.
Fitting the Intros necessitated some tricky suspension work; a Rod-Tech Deluxe coil-over system holds up the business end, while a full custom parallel four-bar set-up accommodates a Ford nine-inch down the back. Without any data on the guts of the 383, Daniel at Fast Lane recommended the donk get looked at, so Paul from Paul Rogers Performance Transmissions was asked to strip it back down.
