    lol

    Hey Mrquick I need those ATS spindles!!!

    Young Gun I spent about 2 years looking for a finnished car. I live in the north east , I made 2 trips to Virginia 3 to New York and many short trips. While I was doing that a friend told me to look at his old car it was parked in 1991 and covered the keys were still in the ignition. After all those trips I went and saw the car . original except for paint SS/RS 53,000 original mile on title matching 350/300motor turbo 350trans and 4:10 12bolt rear. When I got it home I changed fluids primed oil presure and drove it for 2 yrs.I will try to post pictures of when it came home. I was going to redo it slow, I wanted a complete job. I had GM quarters 1 door skin 1 RS fender tail pan upper and lower valances. when I took it apart it needed a right and left floor. I checked around the prices were very high. one guy wanted 10000 labor to use all my parts and no where near this work. I went to see Mike we talked and I decide to use after market quarters and tail panel and roof .I sold the NOS parts to help pay for the work. The nose is all GM doors are original trunk lid is GM. I was worried about fit ,so he said that was his problem. I went to NY to see a car he did it was awsome. The owner spoke very well of him so here I am Wayne

    Its been a while but here are some pictures of my car I changed directions on the rear suspention to an air ride G bar. here are some parts the original radiator suport and inner fender. one picture is of the convertable rockers to stiffen the body . My Rushforth's should be here in a few weeks so Mike can start the Fan 9 . I haven't talked to him this week end so the sub frame might be together.

    Progress

    I changed my mind and decided to go with Speed Tech lower control arms instead of the factory ones with the DSE bushings. Getting a great deal on them couldn't pass them up. The sub frame had some old damage on it so Mike fixed it . Instaed of putting it back factory he set it up for a rack . So if I decide to put one its all set. Here are a few pictures of the sub frame.






    And here are some of my Livewires

    It seems to be a floating finnish date. He keeps working and I keep changing things. At the beginning of the build he asked if he could finnish Brian Halls car ,so it was put off for a little while. Soon I hope, I can't wait to see it . The last time I could get there was last September. But it will be worth the wait.
