    After spending last fall in my driveway doing body work and chopping the top, I had to put everything on hold for the snowy winter we had. april 1st i moved into a 2 bay garage barn I renovated.

    By June 5th the car must be atleast rolling becasue I am using this project as part of my senior year in highschool. they call it a "senior project" where you find a year long project to work on. most kids do some sort of fundraiser or comunity event.

    I finished the frame notch the other day and i got the motor and trans in last night to establish the pinion angle so i can start fabricating the 4-link rear.

    here are some pictures of the car and my new shop
    any feedback on what ive done with the car so far would be cool to show to my teachers becasue graduation is coming soon and id like to be invited.
