OMG, those pictures bring back so many memories. Are you keeping the drums or going to convert to disc? I've just about got my Bird together and will be posting some pictures soon. I've owned the car for over 25 years, but only really got serious about the restoration about 4 years ago. That's about how long it took me to get her done.
