Happy day! Moving under it's own power.

So you drove it sitting on the floor?

Have you thought about putting the logo on the shifter knob?

Hey, Denpo! I have been away for a while and thought I would check in on you guys. Looks like you are making great progress.
I think I may be done driving for the winter here in iowa and will start my winter upgrades soon. They are minor compared to what you are doing.
keep up the good work.
Brent

First of all, sorry everyone who replied to my post, for some reason I didn't receive notifications about those, thanks for for the kind words.
Alas the project went into another speed bump.
Yes I managed to drive it sitting on the floor only to have the engine running very rough. After a tiny round trip limping around the neighborhood I went on to check the engine. Bad news: metal shreds in the driver side head, look like a spring damper broke, even if I couldn't find the culprint yet.
I order a compressor to spark plug adapter and try to remove the springs with the head on, but the retainers seem stuck, no way I could remove the spring without removing the head.
While I have the valve cover off I could see that the part list I've been provided when buying the car is probably mostly BS.
At least springs and lifter arms are not what the seller told me they were.
All that kind of discouraged me to fight for a proper 2017 run and went on to home remodeling/fixing projects that had been waiting for way too long according to SO. There is also this 3D printer that's waiting to be assembled.

With that 5.3 L33 sitting in the garage I don't really see the point pouring more money in the failed SBC.
So the plan for now it having it running next year with the LS engine.
And since the floorpan is still a bit too high for my 6"6' I'm looking forward to install sidepipe to clear the underside and lower the driver seat.

No I didn't think about that, but that's a good idea, will think about that.
