it's funny and sad that you cut up a perfectly restore-able car by midwest/east coast standards
i'm hoping to bug you when the time comes to go bus shopping
Been spending the last couple days stripping down the donor car. I did sawp out the transmission axle tubes and backing plate today.
Here's what's left of it.

Lol. Everything is restorable. Its just money and time brutha.
Pan head turned out to be fooked up to. The whole rear quarter had something wrong going on for real. Found some rivets behind the fender attachment section.
pretty much whole passangers side was fixed at somepoint. And not done the nest..
Let me know mang I will check some stuff out for you. The biggest PNW ACVW show is coming up in 3 weeks. Sure to be some good chit there..
when i finally jump into my oval you're gonna be shaking your head
3 weeks? i don't even think i'll be fully recovered by then. i played some Wii for a little bit tonight and now i hurt like a mofo recovery will be very long, which will draw out the baywindow build and thus the split window upgrade.
your progress is coming along nicely however and it's nice to see that the homeowners associations out west appear quite lax in their rules
Lol. I talked with the neighbors when I brought it home and told them it would only be there for 2 weeks. And it gone now.
Spent the doin work
Cut the spring packs down
finished the beam and get it in
Built my drop spindles
Welded both patch panles in finished installing all the dash peices
still gat to do body filler to them. They are ground down and flush now tho
And my thumb met the cutoff wheel today
Yesterday I installed the window regs and door mechanisms and finished up all the dash items today

Yesturady I welded in the trans raise stuff. Started flattening the passangers side rear pan. Instlled the streering box. Shortend the steering shaft
This week so far I finished-
narrowed the tierods and installed them
finished the passangerss side pan flatting
installed both seats
installed the turnsignal lever
ordered my T2 nose cone and some gaskets
2" trans raise done and motor back in. Got to dial in the ride height. Its to high now yet low and no neg camber. Love it... still got a ton of work before its on the road but getting closer..
damn shame my package tray in the rear of the oval isn't rusty enough for me to justify hacking into it for a trans raise
that whole setup really came out proper ...when it's all smoothed down you'd never be able to tell it was modded. i can't wait to see what you're gonna do with the engine tin
Only gotta do the breast plate. I moved the side engine wings up to match the tins.
Here what it will look like. This is my frinds breat plate.
i think your nuts rusted and fell off.
Had most of the day off so i worked on the car
Installed the master cylider and brake lines
set the king and links
did a "bench test" on the 6v generator
Got a new elect one. Purrs like a kitten now.
Got to get the soft break lines up front as I found they are garbage. And got to order some smart car tires for the front.
Ordered my 145/65/15 from tirerack.com today.
$155.58 shipped to my door
here's a couple comparison pics of 135/15 on the left and 145/65/15 on the right
much better tread patch
