Hello everyone, I have an update on the car I am still working on several details but I painted the calipers, wheels and some other minor details for the interior. Here are some pics on my progress, hopefully next week I can install the engine and put together the side skirts and the interior as well. Also have to work on the suspension and so forth to get this car the correct ride height for the road.

Looking good, can you take a complete side profile shot? The angles from the front make is seem like the rear wheel arch is out of place. Amazing work so far.... Can't wait to see the final transformation.

Hello, I will take some shots of it later but it is not lining up properly since I still need to install some spacers and modify a couple of things here and there but thanks for the compliments.

Copy that.... keep count of things as far as cost, be great if you were willing to do more... maybe we can work together some day... but use this one as your learning tool...

Once again, looking great!!!!

Hello all a little update on the progress of the car, I have been really busy working on other things I have to do but I have been working on finishing the rear end of the car. I fabricated a new spoiler with a an electric hydraulic system, been working on getting the rear end done so I can install the engine and the exhaust system. I have a few pictures and I also have some pictures of the seats which are almost done!

Thanks for the update and looking good.

Question though, based on the height of your hydraulic rams, wondering if you've thought out all the clearance issues under the trunk?

Hello alpine003, thanks yes I have taken that into consideration for the hydraulic rams. I have the clearance needed for the motor and everything else that goes into the engine compartment. Its been a learning process on this car but hopefully the next one goes much easier.

Hello all, here is an update on the car. I actually pulled the motor out today and going to send out the transmission to be checked and have to change the clutch and so forth. I am going to clean the motor up and replace several components, such as spark plugs, timing belts and so forth so I don't have to do it later on. I have some new headers I am going to install as well as a new exhaust and a couple of other bits here and there to get this much more presentable. Here are a few picks of the motor I took when it was taken out.

Hello Everyone, I have a small update on the car I have been very busy with customer cars and trying to run a business at the same time is difficult. I have the transmission being rebuilt and replacing several of the components on the motor. I have been fabricating a front spoiler for this car and wanted to know what everyone thinks about it. I have had several people look at the car and want this front spoiler so I will probably start molding it and selling it. Here are some photos of what I have done so far.
