good to see you Mike. Camaro looked good on the hauler
wow, shiny 2-3 years ago at Monroe and not one hint of shine now....some paintjob! Maybe it'll buff out?! LOL

Herr Brewer returns to school 28 SEPT. I saw him heading So vicinity 7 at 512 while I was headed your way. He was in his Chevelle

Apparently a vehicle has to be complete to have a VIN inspection. I rolled up with no hood on and no engine/trans with the trailer and got denied. Nevermind I drove it on Sunday and on Monday morning it still had those things...I guess my next attempt will be with all the fixins', follicle heaters and all.

In other news, I called Joe and he said probably mid October for car intake. I may put the new front sheetmetal on by then.

Mike, you have to have all the stuff in there but the motor/tranny can be fake or hollow. Seats can just be held in with one bolt. I don't know the reasoning but it works.

Is that a inspection for no title? Doesn't have to run?

The only issue is there's a "6" where there should be an "L" for Los Angeles where the car was built on the title and registration, the VIN plate on the car is correct....someone over 7 years ago made the mistake on the paperwork. I have the new clean title in my name with the incorrect character, the rule needing a complete car just doesn't make sense to me.

Not going to waste any more time or energy on this small issue right now. It's been this way for years, what's 1 or 2 more....I won't forget to do it when the time comes.

Degreased the engine compartment while I was still off last week...lots of gunk keeping it rust free, started taking the front end stuff off for the replacement panels.

Spent some time yesterday helping Brian with a desk and looking at what he's doing on his El Camino project, gives me a few more ideas.

Dude.  Thanks a bunch for stopping over!  Got it all put together and the wife is happy (for the next five minutes anyway). 

Spending some time in the garage again today.  Looking like I'll have the dash done really soon.

I got all the original stuff bolted back onto the new core support this morning so I don't lose it, and spot welded a couple things that were cracked on the hood latch assembly.

Brian came over and we tore just about the whole interior out including the dash, wiring harness and steering column. The floors are amazingly good, blue paint all over and no bolts stripped or broke. Still some trim to take off and I need to install the new subframe bushings.

Yeah those floors appear to be in really good shape. That's a nice chunk of work you wont have to do. Sorry we didn't find enough change to afford a trip to Dairy Queen.

20something cents is better than nothing :) Thanks for the help, the rest of it is a little more manageable in short periods of time now.

Tore the rest of the interior out and removed all window/door trim. Going with the Global West interlocking solid aluminum subframe bushings w/hardware and the DSE weld-in subframe connectors to tie everything together. Plan to install the bushings this weekend, will do the connectors after paint and body are done.

I've been looking and reading about the different rear end kits to do away with the leaf springs, pretty sure I'll go with the Chassisworks G-link setup, just have to decide which of their 5 options.

Yes, Pro Touring style is what I plan to go for.  Not an all-out track car but a street car with improvements/flavor to be added along the way....a good platform that's cheaper and plentiful.  Yes, a driver.

Rolled the car into the garage sideways behind the other 2 and installed the bushings, including the new core support and removed all the brake stuff, fuel lines and evap system. Scraped the passenger side floor pan of the thick black tar insulation, very pristine and blue pans...real happy with that, expect the same from the driver side.

Been searching for the right intercoolers to go in front of the core support and on both sides of the hood latch. Looks like Treadstone has the right kind, will need to holesaw 4 holes and figure out the other coolers' mounting configuration(planning A/C condensor, plus the A/T cooler). Also found another intercooler they make for the Chevelle in a few years...
