I guess it is my time to post some info on what I have been doing to my car.
Painted the engine bay today. The car is getting a color change from beige to black.

Smokin! Love the airbags and straight axle, doesn't look like a Ford 9 inch, what is it? The fender flares are absolutely amazing, I have so much left to do on mine, but those are something I must do in the future. Keep it coming!

92 Camaro rear end with 3:42's, I just picked up a 6 speed out of a 95' to put in front of it. I have air bag struts for the front also. I'll post pictures of them later next week.

Yes it's single. Ran out of time and energy, Have a car arriving Sunday/Monday and I have to get this off the lift asap.

Looks nice! So did you mount the crossmember in place of the torque tube? It looks like that in the photo.

The cross member was built with a hump in it, to clear the drive shaft. Basically everything that was Porsche is gone, I just start with a clean slate. I removed everything.

I was looking at this thread last night and wondering what was up with the widebody project. That is one clean motor.

I have to many cars in the shop to work on my own right now a lot. I only get the evenings to work on it. I do have half the body panels made and sitting on the car. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. I personally think it looks awesome. Very Happy

Killer, definitely like the silver better! Are the valve covers black chrome? I have to rearrange my priorities, and spend more quality time with the beast. So jealous! BTW, the tranny plate fits great, I like it does not stick out, like other pics I have seen. Only problem is I neglected to realize I have to disassemble the transaxle to put in my ATB diff! So after a 5th gear swap, transaxle reinforcement plate, reassembly, ready for the diff, damn! Oh well, will rebuild it this winter, will run the S transaxle in the meantime, that is if I get it to running condition. Rolling Eyes

wait until you guys get to see the pic's. It is killer. The new color is sweet, Eric is making a real mean street machine. His attention to detail and perfection are all over this project.

Post  Admin on Wed Oct 27, 2010 9:48 pm

This is the first set out of the molds, They are just hanging on the car. I haven't had time to get them final fitted and I need one of those dual cartridge guns for the rear quarters to be glued on. Hint , hint, Sad

Eric, I bought my dual cartridge gun on E-bay. I paid about $80 which included 1 08115 200mL panel adhesive. I used about 1.5 tubes to bond my Carrera GT flares.
