      Progress is slow because of the weather. I have managed to get some parts cleaned and ready for paint and squire some more pieces I need to make the motor run. Stay tuned.

      Thanks, I got the mounts from BFIm they are the stage 1 soft poly. I really hope they are worth the money, so far they have been worth it since installing them was extremely easy.

      That spiffy black n' gold lump sitting in the "matured" bay looks so gnarly, I love it! Great work thus far (sorry, I drank one while delivering).

      I made up a short shifter and weighted shiftrod then reassembled the entire shift linkage. I aligned everything and the car goes into gear nicely. I figured I might as well get it out of the way now.



      Here's the progress on the rocker and pinch weld.

      Haha thanks, I'm really happy with how the engine is turning out. Here's what's fueling this stupid build.

      2013 road trip, the more the merrier

      I scored an autotech adjustable cam gear at the junkyard this week and also got a bunch of parts I needed to get this motor running. Here it is clean and painted.

      I am nearing the end of attacking the structural rot. The car now has solid floors, a complete rocker on the pass side, and with help from saddest6day66, a nice strong pass side rear beam mounting point . Tonight I will tackle the drivers side rear beam mounting point and will be able to set the car on the ground this week. I also put an order in with GAP and have all the parts I need to fire up the motor.

      ^^ Haha, no - not you specifically, though you really had me going!

      My wife is from SoCal and it almost brings me to tears, walking through the junkyards down there. Last time we were down there, I saw a white 1977 Honda Civic wagon in the Ecology (Fontana) yard. 4 speed. Paint was mint as was the interior. Super clean - not a spec of rust. No dents, just a couple chips that likely occurred in the yard. Whoever junked that must have been seriously mentally challenged.

      The car is on the ground, last night I finished the drivers side rear beam mounting point and pinch weld. I opted to finish the rocker welding at a later point to get the car back on all 4 wheels. I went and picked up my spare rear beam that I had been hoarding for about 5 years. The beam came from my 84 scirocco when I parted it out, it had new brakes and E brake cables. I threw the beam on in the dark, put the car down, and set the ebrake it still works nicely. I'll be over at the car tomorrow so I'll take some better pictures. For now here is some picture catch up, the pass side rocker 95% complete and completed rear beam mounting point.
