Restarting my thread in the Project Update Forum. I started in early 2014 with a complete tear down, blast an epoxy. Tubs, 4 link, some rust repair, cage, sub-frame and some interior work including new trans and trans tunnel is all complete. A ton of pictures following. Thanks again to everyone for your inspiring builds.

Installed sort of a reverse mold for the custom fiberglass interior panels, probably seems a little strange to use wood, expanding foam insulation and drywall putty....but this was a quick way to shaping this mold. Then I laminated glass over the top. Of course this will all get removed later in the build and the glass will be covered with leather and alcantera. The wood mold will get removed and tossed, of course then I will need to mount the interior panels, truth be told, I haven't figured that out yet but I wanted to get this done prior to installing the roll cage so I could put the cage bars tucked up as tight as possible. It looks rough now...but it's a good base with a cool shape.

Roll Cage was next. I left the door bars off for now, just to make access easier.

Front fender flares are mostly tacked up, will stop here until the rear end is in so I can have a better feel of how the back flares are going to come together...need to insure they play nice with each other. Huge thanks to Steve Lenning and Grendel for paving the way on flaring the rears!! I owe beers!!! And for sure, appreciate the help and encouragement from Kyle at DSE and Tim McGilton. Front width ended up at 74 5/8" with 18x11's and 5"backspace. Plenty of clearance everywhere ....except the fender of course. Will fab my own fiberglass inner fenders later.

If you can see the black sharpie line on the flare (it was originally in line with the body line), you can see how much I had to raise the flare up, along with bringing it out almost 1 5/8". Truth be told, I'm way over my head when it comes to hammer and dolly'n this back in shape but I'm going to make it happen!! I will end up with about 3/8" of clearance while compressed to the bump stops and at full lock on the steering and about 1 degree of camber. I'm assuming that is about what camber will be run on the street? Hope is my strategy on this 3/8" being enough!

Rear end, floater and brakes all set for mock up. Set the rear end up for 1/2" of a spacer to bring the rear tires out to the same width as the front. I know that it would be better to have the option to adjust the front with spacers as well but this would necessitate flaring the front fenders out so far that I think they would look goofy. If I had a redo, I might tighten up the wheel/brake clearances, I think there is 3/8" of extra clearance in my setup. If you wanted to build in some adjustment in the front, it's possible!!

All of the Baer Floater components look awesome. Went together perfectly.
