Powdercoating the insides of every panel before it gets installed. Here are coated rockers and we will do the new floor before it gets welded in too.

Titled, if you get it wrong, hack it off and weld in a new one



Topside, new inner and outer rockers almost finished

Haven't been getting much done. Finally got the door and center bracing out and a place to put my stuff again, still welding front and back in, but at least we can get at it now.



I got one of the competition engineering shock mount and rear frame stiffener, but to use it, we would need to cut the new stock fuel tank and move the spring perches on the new 4:11 posi to make it work. so new from idiot engineering, mostly 3/16ths x 3" stock





No more rusted shock towers with shocks coming thru to the speakers for this car. Its just one side, the other one is in and will have a piece of 2" - .125 square tubing welded in between the two where it forms around the rear frame rail. Should get the stiffening effects of the competition engineering one while leaving the springs in the same place and the shocks connected to something better than the sheet metal.

Been a while for pictures (hint hint kandy)

Anyhow subframe is repaired around the bushing areas and back on for final adjustments before we powdercoat it







really had to beat the hell out of the front of the frame, got us some torches to get her glowing to make her move. seems the last guy hit a curb or stump or sumptin. After beating it half to death, we added some new 1/8 plate under the main frame section, since this is where most of the jacking will be done anyhow.





Currently fabricating extensions between the rear frame rails and subframe
