BTW this is how my car sits today. In shambles.
I did the mock up photos of the rear wheels just to cheer me up a bit.
This week I am planning on getting it off the springs in the back and mounting all the 4 link, then sending it down to get coated. I will also pull my heads and pan on the new engine and check everything over before the engine builder comes to pick it up. I will install the column/master cylinder/weld a few spots on the car. So that being said I need to set pup the welder a friend lent me and get use to welding with it. Should be fun.

Well did some work yesterday and I finally installed th four link with some help. Man what a mess.
It took the most time getting the useless brackets off the frame and hammering things out.Changing stuff link this isn't for the faint of heart. I included a few photos of the finished product. Unfortunately TCI packed 5.5" bolts for my lower coilovers and not 7", so I will need to get correct ones. Basically I just mocked up the whole thing in place, so it is easy for me to the it back out today and go get it coated.
Also a good thing I did yesterday was drop off my engine for the cam swap. I need to get some random things for the front acc and then put them on once the beast is back.

I thought I shoot in a few photos of my car actually seeing the light of day even though it's not in a beautiful condition. lol

Too bad I can't keep the front this low. It's almost laying the frame without the springs in it. I am thinking I will go back and change out the front to proper lower A-arms with the coil overs instead. It's not too much in the grand scheme of things at this point.It's just money right......

I finally got a tank and started using my 135 Eastwood welder. First thing I did to test it out was weld up a crack in my floor. It was strange to have this crack. My car doesn't have rust, but had this crack. It actually welded up good and I got great penetration on it.

I have to admit I am very rusty welding so i felt it looked kind of caterpillar -ish. I need to dial in the speed and temp better and I am sure I will get back to welding like I use to 15 years ago.

I am waiting my power coating and I will try and prep/finish the floor of the car but cleaning it with wire brushing and spraying the bedliner coat and also a hammer paint top coat.

The engine has been at the shop getting the fresh cam/springs/head gaskets. I have ordered just about everything I need for the front drive and brackets. I hope to get this up and running very soon.
