    That is some very impressive work. I remember you writing that the car is about 6" wider than stock, and that you were worried it might be difficult not to "screw it up". Well I think you can put...

    Definitely lots of tedious, repetitive work... but you're doing a great job.

    Perhaps I'm not as cynical as Steve, because the fibreglass body could be worth a substantial amount... certainly more than the cost of crushing it. :p Without photos of the bare chassis and the...

    To compare jm14's experience with what you can expect, you'd need to know more about his set up. His climate may be very different than yours, his car may not have had a mid-mounted engine (which...

    76mx, on traditional radiators, the larger, lower hose runs to the water pump’s suction port. By making the lower hose larger in diameter than the upper hose, the vacuum pressure in the hose at the...

    Joel, what angle is your radiator at, and what is the width, length, and depth of it? How many horsepower are you planning from your Coyote engine?

    I see an area that might be problematic from a cooling perspective. Obviously the radiator would've worked most efficiently if you could've oriented it perpendicular to the airflow. The fins are...

    Hey Don... there are different thoughts on this but my opinion is that you shouldn't. Some people only ground the battery to the frame up front and that's a definite recipe for problems. I know...

    There's a lot to consider when moving a front wheel drive cradle to the rear of a car. The engineers at Pontiac did just that when they built the Fiero… they took the front end of a Chey Citation,...

    Definitely great for better weight distribution, but another reason is to be able to fit your flat tire back in your car after you've changed it out. The only alternative might be to throw the flat...

    It would help if you posted the year of the car. If you're not sure, then have a look a the VIN number. The 10th position will either be an F for 85, G for 86, H for 87, or J for 88.
