Hello Everyone-

My name is Jackson and I have a 1979 Malibu Classic with a Landau top. Black and silver two tone, 17 in rims, black interior, LS1/4L60E engine tranny (still in progress), eaton posi with 373 rear gear, and much more. It's a pleasure to get on board with all of the other gear heads and find some folks that like the G body other than me.

Have you done your plumbing for fuel and if so are you changing out the fuel rail to a 98 version or buying the adaptors for the fuel inlets and running a external regulator or intank? I am actually in the middle of a frame off with the same car in the photo in combination with the LS1 build. I am really close to plumbing out the fuel and have been debating on the best route.

I wanted to o intank, but I went sumped for now. I plan to go fast if I keep it. I have the vic r intake and rails. I do have a new vette filter/reg Im not gona use.

The good photos are about five months old and the ones with it apart are a few of my ls1 frame off. I have a ton more on my myspace if you are interested just let me know and I will post up my myspace link.

Hey I was wondering what bodymount bushings your going to use.

Looks nice. I've got 79 and 83 wagons staged as projects.

I have the full body urethane kit from energy. I have already installed the suspention urethane for both the front and rear, but still have the body mounts to do. I am expecting to have the body back on by next weekend. I will put up a post then.

You will have to log into your myspace account to see them but here is the link:


Just go to my photos and I have them arranged by month. Feel free to ask any questions about what I have done.

Nice 'Bu! I'm a big G-body fan myself, I have an '88 SS and have owned a few other Monte SS's, along with an '86 Cutlass Salon. They're fun cars to work on, and handle great with some minimal upgrades!

Welcome, nice malibu! Mine's almost ready to go back on the road after recent paint. Gotta buff it out.
