Time to bust this motha up .

well not really didn't bother cutting really anything ,pretty tame and went smoother than I thought.

Was kinda hoping for at least a little blood.... nope not a drop hmphhh.

biggest pain in the ass was the electrical, Tim had the right idea of scrapping it, I saved it anyways, In the long run probably going to change out the engine, 350 or something,or do what I think R2 Lou did and rebuild the engine so you don't need the computer. (Hey Lou can I get a parts list off ya Thanks) I'm going to remove the engine and transmission next, before the stretch.

No problem I also think this is how they built Stonehenge....

Well was all that hard work of the teardown worth the effort. Did I have a chassis I could use  or was there so much rust I have to start my search for a donor again.

nah its fine

and the tear down i probably could have done in a day if I didn't try to save the electrical.

better than I thought actually. I went over it with a crowbar just surface rust no holes nothing I'm concerned about. I'll clean it up after I get the motor out and then the stretch. Still lookin at different options on that.

Any ways thats more or less up to date, next motor and figuring out the stretch, learning to weld and ordering parts spending money ect. If it gets too slow I'l post some pics of my Batman stuff...

Ta ta for now......

Looking good!

That was similar to what my frame looked like.. lots of grinding in your future!!

The rust removal is a pain in the ass but it doesn't get done by wishing it so I just made sure to box in the weaker areas with some 1/8" plate steel. I got mine from the [url=http://www.metalsupermarkets.com/][/url]. They have good prices and delivery is pretty cheap as well. I bought all my tubing from them too.

Thanks Vader

It really doesn't seem fast and right now doesn't feel like any real productive work.

Kinda feels like I'm still just getting ready to work.
Everything there so far I could have done in a day or two.

I think once I start cleaning up the frame and getting the stretch done it will feel like I've accomplished something.

Later

Hey, when you have a chance and if you dont mind, could you post a few more pics of how the front turbine is attached to the hood?

I was thinking of reinforcing the inner with a metal strap ring, but seems yours is just bolted to the hood fiberglass?

Also, could you post another pic of the trunk grills? I see you have open the slots which I am planning to do too!

Thanks in advance!

No problem Vader , I took the portable garage down on Sunday,

I wanna get every inch of the car photographed sorta before and after shots.

Last time I had full access to the car it was raining, When I put up the garage I didn't have any access to the back and about a foot and change on the sides...

I'll do it as soon as I can...
