    You will get more response if you post pics and a starting price. Otherwise you are not going to get much interest. You may want to change the typo to 3.73 gears. What brand diff did you install? What brand & part number pistons? What cam is in there? People are going to want more detail than the typical Craigslist ad and the colorful descriptions are less helpful that actual specific details regarding how it is equipped.

    One of his first posts has pics from 2009 inbeded in a PDF file. Current pics of decent resolution are going to be more useful. 3 years of driving can cause a car to change quite a bit.

    Isn't that the truth! 3 years ago my P72's d/s fender looked solid, after some more winters it's obvious that fender needs replacing.

    No more than .030 on a Cleveland is what I've heard, and that even at .030 it should be sonic-checked. Some Windsor blocks were supposedly pretty thick, so who knows.

    He definitely meant .060. No factory 302 has even .300 thick cylinder walls.
