      Today I kept working at re-wiring the Falcon:

      I was stopped in my tracks when I ran out of butt connectors and zipties. I had to wait around untill my roommate was able to take me to get more supplies. Anyhow, I have it mostly done as of right now, I just have to figure out the ignition switch, the headlight switch, and the turn signal switch. I think once I get the ignition installed the other stuff will be cake.
      The battery tray is in awesome condition... normally they are rusted like swiss cheeze


      The 200 I-6 is getting it's generator swapped out for an alternator tomorrow. I have the alternator, the brackets, and the one-wire regulator:

      Technically I would have to swap in the V8 steering linkage and spindles. If I were to drop the V8 in with the 6cyl suspension, the linkage would hit the oil pan and not allow me full steering travel. The 7.5" rear end would get chewed up and spit out by a healthy V8 as well.
      Eventually I might put in V8, with a healthy suspension and drivetrain that can handle it. from what I've heard though, the 6cyl. Falcon has pretty decent performance. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Not so much. My brother's Ranger has a 306 in it running 13 flat in the quarter on his stock 7.5" rearend. He's building an 8.8" though with 4.30 gears, should drop a second on his ET.

      Looks awesome Mike. Great ride height. That reminds me of my 84 GTI. It got donated to my ex-wife in my divorce. Its wasnt worth going back to satans house to get it.
      4.30 Me like acceleration.
      Carlik what ever would make you change to cable shifting?

      Well I finally did my rear beam on the corrado, but not enough to keep the corrado from crab walking.
      The good: [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      1. Fixed the .5 degrees out syndrome on my back axle.
      2. My E-brake works properly now.
      The bad:
      1. Stripped a mounting bolt. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      2. The brakes in the rear arent working properly cause of the proportioning valve.
      3. holy crap it was cold when the sun went down.
      Dar she blows

      Here a corrado getting ready for the NOPI hydraulics competition.

      Two wheel motion.

      Some1 caught a critter with the car.

      Out with the old in with the...well old

      Of course Tim and I finished when it was dark, wouldnt have it any other way.

      I take it from the pics that you finally bought a decent jack?
      How did you strip a mounting bolt, and which one was it? Maybe we can re-tap it or something?
      Any way, hopefully you'll get the crab-walking straightened out. I think if the unibody is warped theres a machine that might be able to twist it back into shape.
      As far as the rear brakes go, you might need to lift up on the proportioning valve to get it to work right. If I remember right, I had to ziptie mine up to the beam while I bled the brakes. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      The owner of that D-90 is really proud of it. You probably couldn't get him to part with that thing.
      If you do get a D-90 though, you will have to wear a safari hat and talk with an accent, either South African or Australian. They sound a lot alike, but according to one of my professors who is from S.A., a discerning ear can tell the difference

      the place i live is pretty cool. i made sure before i moved in. the area right behind my cars is where they tell us to work on our cars. they dont care for people working on there cars, but they understand that sometimes theres a need. me i just have the need a little more than others. behind the parking area behind my cars there is a big hill behind that is a place where people have abandoned there cars. the neighborhood heathens have gone back there and busted the cars up pretty badly. i have changed the suspension on the rocco 3 times tring to get it right. the rabbit doesnt even have a motor, should have one soon as lee does his vr swap. that will be going in the car right where it sits right now. i will do it later in the day when the office is closed since it is only two door down from me.
