Thanks! I was planning on bringing the bugeye to about 550, 408 was the base tune haha. I Sold it before i could really do too much with it, life came first at that point. Im hoping to give a mild boost to the all trac but not too crazy, id like to keep it stock location turbo and all. Give it more of a stock look with some oomph behind it. Just bought a engine lift today, went on sale as i had hoped and day after i got my tax return. Be here within the week then I just have to see if i can get a couple friends to come up and help me wiggle it loose. Could prob do it alone but when moving something this heavy i like to have a backup (people who can move it by hand if need be in emergency).

Engine stand is all assembled, engine hoist is all assembled. We had a attempt to pull the motor day and we got a lot done and can pretty much pull the motor but as we got to that point it hit 11PM so we called it. Just need to pull the rest of the wire harness, pull the charcoal canister and pull fuel ish then shes coming out in one whole swoop tranny and all. We got out the full front setup on both sides in one piece (axle, knuckle, coils, attached misc items). Strut tower areas themselves now that i can see them easier are pretty good condition rust wise, nothing crazy in there to worry about just need to blast that all down seal and rubber coat. Also cleaned the garage before the other gents arrived, we were planning on needing the room but now at least its so much easier to work, I have a huge whiteboard in getting that will be going on the wall as a check list board.

Enough talk, MOAR PICTURES!

Still going to be a long road to recovery but the more I get into it the better its looking as far as rust damage. Really the only major parts ive identified that need some serious help are the drivers floor pan (which is pretty much not there anymore) and the rear/rear drivers subframe mount (which is also pretty much not there). Ive started a thread to get some panels made but without the ones I have out of the car to send them or some other ones I cant move forward on that. I have thought about making a template to send them but if its just cardboard im scared via shipping it wont come out on there end right and will be a pain to fit. Anyone have any suggestions on getting him a mold or something I can use to make a mold that I can ship and will keep its shape so when they get it the mold is spot on to the original part?

Well its time to start going balls to the walls!

I figured id refresh the thread a bit as im about to be in for a long long summer of work. I purchased a brand new welder and all the needed fixings for gas mig welding. Ive hopefully also got some body panels coming in from a GT4 in England and if not im going to make them myself. Ive started to strip down the suspension arms and subframe again from the horrible job I had done before with spray can paint, I will likely have these powder coated or repaint them myself but to a higher quality standard.

Goal for this summer is to have all the body work completed, all the suspension arms and items reattached and the car in a least an epoxy primer.

Started to strip down and clean the suspension arms. Im thinking powdercoat on these but that will cost $ and I wont be able to do that myself (looked into making something but the parts are far too large for a home setup). So im thinking maybe some kind of paint on them instead? Has anyone else redone these an what have you guys used? Im also worried powdercoat will add a lot of weight to the suspension vs paint? Any recommendations?

And I know everyone likes pics, not much but heres the first arm (aircraft stripper next step)'

Could por15 them, or an epoxy spray.

Powder coat.
Its the only thing that will last under the car.

POR15 doesn't really deserve the reputation it has for these kinds of jobs.

Yea im not using POR15, I agree its not what its said to be really. I can get free powdercoating so I was leaning that way but I have to make sure everything is 100% off these so the PC can stick properly. I get it free but its also kinda a hit or miss on quality (my dad does it and hes not a car guy, its meant for folding chairs and stuff). I was thinking aircraft remover to get all the old original paint/pc or whatever they use off. I attempted a homemade soda blaster which MIGHT work but I have no way to contain the soda so it makes one HUGE mess.
