Default 78 Malibu Street Machine build!

I was using GBF but they are not very active. I hope you guys are much more active.

Sorry for the rant, so here's what I have recently purchased:

78 Chevrolet Malibu Classic
SBC 350/TH350
17" Showwheel Streeters wraped in ZR17 BFGs
2" Drop springs all four corners
Road Demon 625 CFM
Edelbrock RPM performer intake
Mild cam (not sure the size, but it lobes pretty good!)
Shift kit
B&M Quarter stick shifter
3" GM steel cowl hood
Crystal clear head lights
Full set Autometer classic gauges in a custom built dash bezel
Energy suspension body mounts
Goodmark stamped steel battery tray
Headman headers
True dual Exhausted dumped a set of 40 series Flowmasters
Full set of Percys aluminum crush gaskets (flange and collectors)

This weekend;
Pulling engine/trans for a Full regasket
Installing the Jegs trans crossmember/trans mount
Redoing the exhaust (has a few bad spots where the previous owner couldnt weld for ****)
New motor mounts
FULL hardcore engine bay scrubdown
Steering wheel (maybe)

Future plans:
Convert to bucket seats (Power seats out of a 2001 Grand Prix 2 dr)
Relocate the shifter into a custom fiberglassed center console/dash
Find a set of rear seats to graft in
passenger side floor pan
larger front and rear sway bars
rear disc/posi conversion or swap
cut and tuck front and rear bumpers
Front and rear spoilers (Pro touring feel function)

Let me know what you guys think!
