      Also doesn't anybody have any fast(er) polishing ideas for the valve cover?
      This is compared to sitting in the garage for days with bloody hands and various grits?

      Pay somene else to do it

      Heres the update!
      From my understanding, air ride stuff is on they way thanks to Andrew at Open Road Tuning.
      Forgot to mention that I got some more headlight stuff in today, so i might work on the retrofits this week, while my dad is still away and i get to use the shop.



      Got a few of these...

      And to anyone who is kinda wondering about the build name.

      So I plan on laying frame, I just want to go through some of the stuff I have to do to get there
      I already plan on:
      -Frame notch (how much should I take off in order for clearance of the axle?)
      -Front Sway bar is coming out.
      -Fender liners are already gone and pinch welds are being folded.
      -Rolling fenders slightly.
      Any other ideas.

      yeah you can trim your subframe where the control arms hit , once you get your bags in, take your wheels off have the car on jack stands in the front and jack up your control arm and you can see where it hits.

      Shaved the Holes for the Evap System

      General Cleanup and wire tuck

      Sensor Lines Ran

      Base

      Wiring Mess

      Done for the Night.

      OMG IT LIGHTS UP!@

      Well, i hope you no one who waited had 56k.
      Just waiting on the bags to get here and in the mean time I will be building a false floor for in the trunk to hold the tank and hide the rest of the stuff.

      Thanks.
      False floor is almost built. just need to pick up some felt so it doesnt rattle.
      Left to do:
      Run air lines
      Finish setting up the lines in the trunk
      Run an air line from the tank to valve block
      Drill holes to run air lines from trunk
      Set up the leveling sensors
      Install bags
      Run wires for the rear sensors
      Notch Frame
      Re-assemble interior
      Build cover for false floor
      ALSO
      What should I do with my tank? I was going to make it a disco ball, but that would look tacky.
      IDEA ME!

      Rolled fenders, rear tires don't rub whatsoever, just a mock up. I just popped the spring out.
      Thinking i might have to step it up to a 20 mm rear spacer.
      More photos to come.
      Bagyard rear bags are here, Mason-Tech rear bags sold and shipped out!

      remove bump stops, and get shorter rear shocks.

      Yes, that was just on the rear shock with no spring.
      I have shorter struts, KYB AGX. But i will be changing them soonish.... What should i go with, H&R? any other companines that will just outright sell just the rear struts?
      I chopped the rear bumpstops down, i can now stick a business card in there and it will stay.
      I found out, i cannot go any lower. I am hung up on my exhaust.......
      Has anybody notched their rear subframe deal there?
      I have stained the wooden frame and the tank is painted and being prepped for my big idea of what i am doing with my tank
      I will be waiting till thats complete before i post pictures of that.

      This WILL be done on or before March 24th. I want to go out driving on my birthday .

      Thanks for the ideas guys.
