    Glad to see you're back at it! I for one am looking forward to more (timely) updates!

      I have been working on the car here and there, removing undercoating, seam sealer, patching holes, seam welding etc. I'm hoping to get all the bare metal prepped and shot with epoxy primer soon. Recently I completed the ford 8.8/coilover conversion and here are some photos of that.

                        Hey Don,

                        I have made some progress- Floors inside primed and seam sealed, floors underneath seam sealed and undercoated, engine bay painted, engine back in, front coil overs installed... I'll post some update photos this coming week.

                        • Yes please - this build is epic!

                          • I made some progress a while back but neglected to post. This was tedious work but it had to be done. I decided to add some gussets from the rear frame crossmember that would tie in to the strut tower area/frame rails.



                            Next I prepped the whole floor, top and bottom to remove any paint, surface rust, and factory undercoating.

                                Next up I AM starting on the body buck. But this project is taking a back seat for a few more months while I finish an engine swap/refresh in another car I have.
