Made a little progress this week, now to test fit the engine/trans again.  I need to look up how long a 90 degree A/C fitting is....

 I'm only concerned about the lower fitting, haven't done the research yet on fitting size...I will modify the side plate if necessary.  Currently the rearmost part of that plate is against the inner frame that is unseen...I may need to make it "V" shaped which will be simple enough.  Not going to weld it all in for good until I check fitment there.

Finally bought a 90 degree A/C fitting and it arrived today.  Need to do a little clearance "V" cutting and buy an acetylene bottle....going to heat and bend the new vertical piece I tacked in.  It needs about 1/4" to clear and have a little extra space for motor mount torque piece of mind.

Last week--Heated and pounded the crap out of the vertical side piece, sort of made it rounded in the recess I made with the grinder.  I don't have a photo of the 90* fitting clearance but it fits with enough room to spare(I do have poly engine mounts so less vibration movement)....had a couple of trials in and out.  Fully welded and smoothed some.

Today--Able to get some time in to re-clean the bare metal, looked over the original welds some more and re-did a bit more.  Painted with VHT Epoxy self priming paint.

I should move on to cleaning more of the underside rear of the car next.

Thanks, I really haven't had time for this car lately.

Trying to get back on this a bit in the last week since fall is here...been working on the house(and will continue to) and life is just busy.  

With the GTO gone a spare garage space is nice to have back!  I don't miss that Pontiac one bit, so that's also a plus.  Doing a little metal work on this Chevy (small pin holes, fixing some factory bad body welds, etc.), attempting to get the underside of the car done and ready to be painted.  No pics but nothing special yet.

 I haven't looked in awhile but I figured they do still have it....they need to rebuild the heads.

Underside of firewall to about the rear floor pans finally painted.  More to go but some of that involves replacing some of the trunk pan.

Figured I'd at least reply to this thread to keep it alive. Been doing research on how to read compressor maps and select a turbo size for the twins. Right now the Borg Warner S366 looks good.

I need to throw my cam specs on a national site or call someone like Li'l John who knows this stuff well and see what they think. The cam was ground wrong the first time so it had to be reground and that makes me re-think it regarding hardness depth and quality vs. a brand new dedicated designed and ground turbo cam.

Also looking at the rear end of the car realizing I need to do the Chris Alston 4-bar install replacing the leaf springs and 10 bolt before getting too far with trunk floor etc. after looking at the instructions online.  I could keep the 8.5" I bought for the rear disc brakes but want at least 33 spline axles so will probably go to a 12 bolt.  9 inch is an option but want to keep it Chevy style.

Mike, bottom of car looks nice all painted! I should spend the time to do that on the 55 and my 69. Not trying to criticize and understand its the bottom of the car but what do you think about smoothing the welds on the floor pan repair? Shouldn't take too long to rough knock em down and touch up the paint.

Brett, thank you  --- I need to do that for sure, I just knew it'd be awhile before I got back under there so wanted it coated and somewhat finished. I still have to cut through the floor pans and weld in the DSE subframe connectors in that area after all the front sheetmetal is back on and aligned. It's in no way done for good, just for now and wanted to show I finally got something done. Using VHT Roll Bar and Chassis Self Priming spray paint so no big deal to repaint it.
