IIRC the motor was around 119k, which was the lowest they had. Will be doing a valve adjustment and new plugs, ERG is going to be deleted.

Had to get another project on the lift so she got set back down and slid into a temporary home.





This is a blurry photo of the front clearance right now



Compared to the rear

I wanted to get some mig practice on this project, it turned into grinder practice...



This is the tube that connects into the frame, should be good for the traction bar plans in the future.





All tacked together.





Added these dope hemispheres on the ends, accidentally got too excited and painted the assembly this morning.



Added a front motor mount too.



Had enough of that awful MIG stuff.







Currently waiting on radiator bushings to finish the front end, then on to tackle the wiring and throttle linkage, fuel pump, and some little odds and ends.

Small progress today, getting a little closer everyday.

These are the rad bushings I used on my sedan, I loved them so much I took a photo to show em off.



Had to weld these tabs to sit in the bushings. Aluminum still kills me, but I got pretty lucky on this one and it's not too bad for thin Chinese alloy.



Support tabs.





This is the radiator with the matching AC condenser attached, it's a bit cocked, going to have to tweak the mounts a little.



All those years spent complaining about bending cage bars finally paid off. His this top bar first try. Pretty proud about it too.





Here is the hood latch, going to attach to that same bar.

Thanks!

Got the hood latch mounted up!







And the lower head light mount, took forever to get these brackets lined up.

Thanks dude

Here are the upper radiator mounts that I wrestled with all weekend!



Coming up with a design that tied in to the rest of the design was a serious amount of work. This solution looks pretty nice to me.



Just a stock single cam, nothing to see here.

No plans for a kit, but if enough people are interested I can arrange it.
