Well it started out needing a complete floor ,then the trunk had some pinholes scatered a round . The tail panel had rust all a round the taillights. The quarters had been fixed badly. There was a small hole in the roof skin and It was well if we fix this then that 's not much more and on and on. I brought it to a guy in my area who does awesome work .He wanted $10,000 labor to put quarters tail panel floor and trunk. I had to bring all my own parts.
So I bought all NOS parts .I was ready to have him do it . Then I saw Mike's site and couldn't believe his work , for $3,000 more he provide the parts not NOS but the way he installs them I couldn't tell the difference. I sold the NOS parts and paid for half my work. I kept the front end NOS parts ,but the rest are from Mike. I spent a bunch more with add ons but its my one shot at this so I jumped in with both feet in the deep end . And I'm not sorry.
THanks for looking
WAyne

Default Sub Frame Pictures

Here are some sub frame pictures Mike blasted the sub and found it had been hit on the drivers side . So he suggested we cut the crossmember in front of the motor and replace it with the set up they use to install a Rack system. Then he fixed any rusted mounting points . Then he welded all the seams solid, and ground it smooth. He powder coated all the parts It has DSE upper control arms with Xtall ball joints ,Speed tech lower control arms . All new Moog steering components with tall outer tie rod ends to combat bumpsteer. 3" drop springs with single adjustable Vari shocks and a dse front sway bar. Check it out its the first part for the car thats finnished!


Her is what it looks like now




These don't show it with the coil spring in but it is done now.
What do you think
