Sorry for the prolonged wait, but the motor is finally mounted. I need to order the rest of the heim joints so i can start building the control arms. Im using 3/4' heims for the ball joints, 5/8 for the lower control arms, and 1/2 for the upper control arms. Here are some photos of the progress thus far...















I am going to try to build the brackets for the rear lower control arms tomorrow, as well as the control arms themselves.

Enjoy life while you can, because you only have one shot. So go BIG or go home.

After seeing countless "gonna swap this" "gonna swap that" threads that usually end with no one hearing from that person again after a few hack job photos.
Its so awesome finally seeing someone getting somewhere with their one-off build!

I look forward to seeing this finished!

Here is the start of the brackets for the rear control arms.


It took way to long to drill and cut these things out with a cutoff wheel. I have to cut out 14 more just for the lower arms. So I'll be using the plasma cutter tomorrow to expedite the process. I want to have the rear arms completed tomorrow so I can roll the quarter panels next week. We shall see, but I should have another update tomorrow. Ordered the rest of the heims joints as well, they should be here next week.

Here are some more tabs that I started to cut. The same tab from our local shop was $5, I made 24 of them, same thickness, for about 3 bucks. Its just taking longer to complete this project making most of my own components, plus being lazy at times. blah.

Floor pan is essentially done, a couple of small cutouts left. Then I can make the seat brackets and firewalls. Followed by mounting the pedals and steering shaft. hopefully tomorrow
