I talked to Frank at Prodigy today my front suspension should be at my house next week and I placed the order for my AME tri-4bar today it's going to be a good Christmas this year. I should have something worthy of an update up soon

John - wait till you see the AME front end. It's a work of art! Here's a couple of teaser pics for you:




Congrats man...

I havent been on in a while to give an update about the car so.....

Subframe is back under it with the DSE Body mounts

i dropped in my 305 just because I had nothing better to do. Im currently debating going with a crate LS or a drop out LS motor but thats a long way away.

My girlfriend has been harrassing me about the pile of boxes in the entry way at home and txt me pictures of all of them. So when i get back from my current training trip next weekend ill be able to fully assemble my front suspension and get the front back on the ground.

The AME Tri-4bar should be done soon, I need to give Prodigy a call and check the status. Hopefully i can get the car back on the ground before January

Ill get some more pics up soon

Its been a while since I have updated..

since my last post i have assembled the front suspension, minus the steering linkage which a buddy of mine is sandblasting some the parts.





I started on the mini tubs, i have one mocked up it still needs some trimming and fine tuning. I still have to cut the floor for the right tub, I began to remove the frame rails for the AME rear which I should have this week.





Im going to wait to weld the tubs in until i get the suspension in. I am still debating if i can save the quarters or if i just want to replace them someone did a pretty terrible job of patching them. the outer wheelwells will definately need to be replaced.

Is there a way to roll the 1/4 lip without buying the 300 dollar tool im going to use one time and never touch again? ive been told that I will regret cutting them.



sorry for the bad pics I took them on my Iphone

I like the wheels they'll look great. I don't know how they work but Eastwood has a set of plyers to do the lip. I don't know anyone who used them.
