got my dash from jegs in the mail today. its going to need some major trimming.
Click the image to open in full size.

for some reason, the guy that had the car before me used a cutting torch on the upper strut plate.
Click the image to open in full size.

cage is all wrapped up and the inside is almost ready for paint. probably a good 3-4 more hours of prep
Click the image to open in full size.

so i made a plate. i still need to drill the holes in it and weld it in, but you get the idea.
Click the image to open in full size.


i have a small update, and im kind of scratching my head at this one. i tried bolting up the engine mount to the engine and the way it sits is really crooked. the engine will tilted so far forward like this. anyone know whats up?

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

a few more pics of the supercharger. if any of you guys wants to buy it, ill cut you a sweet deal.

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

drilled and welded the upper strut mounts. didnt turn out as pretty as i had hoped but its strong as hell and a nice strut bar will cover all that nastyness.

Click the image to open in full size.


tranny cleaned up
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

started primering the interior but more to see how much coverage i would get out of one can of the new high build primer from sem and to see any rough spots i missed sanding.
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

gas tank is welded shut. my buddy warped the sheet metal kind of bad so its going to take some banging and a nice skin coat of metal 2 metal filler to get it looking pretty again.
Click the image to open in full size.

haha, the car is so damn light that it started teetering on the jackstands when we were putting the engine in, so we had to throw a 5 gallon bucket of silicon sealant and a bag of concrete to counter the weight. it was almost disasterous.
Click the image to open in full size.

but.......THE ENGINE IS IN!!

<3 my car
Click the image to open in full size.

<3 my shop
Click the image to open in full size.

DA rear suspension is in
Click the image to open in full size.

got my throttle bodies in, but the damn fuel rail didnt fit with the DA booster and master cylinder.
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

then my buddy came by and had a bright idea of turning the runners around and having the fuel rail on the top. so we did that and the brake fluid resevoir is in the way. so whats going to happen is i am going to plug up the inlet on that side and drill/tap a hole for the fitting so it comes out the rear of the rail instead of the side.
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

rear suspension is done (other than the ebrake cable and the toe kit needs to go in)
Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.
crazy toe. its maxed out and it still has like 2 inches of toe.
Click the image to open in full size.

nice wide stance. lovin it

its actually john deere green and that **** has got to go! i am in the process of doing body work right now, but the interior is going nighthawk black pearl and the exterior is going to be, top half is going to be lexus starfire white with a satin clear and the bottom half is going to be nighthawk black pearl. the cutoff between those two colors will be the side moldings.
