Hey man, nice Colt. 
 

Check the progression holes on your Weber’s as mine has that similar stutter when starting off. Apparently it’s caused by a lack of fuel as the throttle butterfly hasn’t moved past the progression hole.

Looking good with the stripe. What do you want to do with the suspension? Just lower it a bit, replace bushings and shocks or are you wanting to go it further?

Yeah, a bit more than that I reckon @dwlee – the ideal plan is: reset the leaves, then fine tune height in the rear with blocks (looks like you can't actually take much out of the leaves as they are a pretty shallow curve as it is). Then get coilover struts made up for the front. And yeah, replace all the bushes and so on at the same time too.

The standard leaf springs as pretty soft and if you have them reset you may need to add another leaf. I had to do this with the 76 and I'm likely to do it again with the 75. I'm using early land cruiser (Fj40) shocks in the rear.
