    started the rear end. cut out the rest of the old floor since it was shot, also makes it easy to setup the 4 link. Got the frame notch tacked up, I will grab the 220 welder soon and weld that up. Hoping to have it laying frame in a week or two!

    and all of the work on the front of the frame paid off as the clearances are perfect.

    and take a minute to remember those who died on this day at pearl harbor in 1941.

    did some test fitting of the front sheetmetal to make sure everything lined up the way it should on the new frame and to check motor to hood clearance. Everything worked out the way it should.

    correct, I don't have room for an underfloor one, and I dont want to clutter up my bay so this should work well.

    Looking good but isn't that going to be a pain in the butt to check and fill brake fluid?

    With the dash trim out its right there. Is it gonna be harder than an underhood? sure... but its worth it to have a clean firewall.

    anyway, been an a stressful week, ended up getting T-Boned in my daily driver this Tuesday on my way to work .so Ive been dealing with that and insurance companies and all that stuff. However did get some time to escape and work on the car a bit.

    [​IMG]

    Used the english wheel to form a piece for the transmission tunnel that will be removable.

    and I cut out part of the firewall to make a new/ cleaner piece,

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    however I messed up the beadroll, its tough doing all of this by yourself sometimes, So ill have to make another piece and try again,

    decided I wanted to do something different on the firewall. So I made a new piece that has the same contour as the passenger side. I will be shaving the blower motor and the fresh air vent. I will be running an aftermarket heater/AC box so I am going to set it up to come out the side rather than the front like stock.

    Thanks, I figured it would be subtle but nice.


    Got some work done today despite the single digit temps, so no air tools.

    cut the pedal face off the original 54 pedal and welded it to my new booster arm

    [​IMG]

    also fabbed up a brace/mount for the pedal cluster.

    [​IMG]

    lines up nice and will clear the column, I have to find a way to use the original floor mounted pedal with the new GM drive by wire pedal.

    [​IMG]

    nice look up at the cluster, ignore the backside of the welds on the firewall, I will clean it up once I get the airtools again.

    [​IMG]

    and I cleared off the junk on the otherside of the car so i snapped a few random shots.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    im super happy with the lines of the car.
