Since I've followed and commented on some of your projects,
I thought I might aswell put some of my budget build pictures up.
This is low budget driver quality project I'm doing with my beer money, I've had to sacrifice and cut way back on cigars, guns, ammo and beer,going out....
My plan is to get it mechanically new and safe,drive it for awhile while I collect some sheet metal before I take it back apart for new quarters and mini tub, paint and whatever I want to do over, and who knows what's under that vinyl top...
I didn't document as well as most of you did with pictures,but I have a few.
This car was originally a powerglide car and was a 4spd conversion.
I started by selling the 327, clutch, M-20,10 bolt rear end, driveshaft, subframe with GM discs.
I fixed some floor and trunk rot, passenger side shock tower,cut and patch some areas on the rear inner fenders.
It's floors are now solid and rust free, I used the silver POR15,seam sealed and put the fat mat sound deadener down.
So far I've added
AAW update wire harness,
Retro sound model 2, two JL audio speakers in the stock dash location, and since the previous owner had already cut up the kicks for some nice Krako speakers, I got some nice infinity Kappas to fit without cutting any metal.
Powdercoated 9" rear with 3.50 gears, 3" narrower. with disc brakes.
Hotchkis TVS system and frame connectors, 3" drop all around.
Global west A arms with tall upper ball joint, global solid body mounts.
Front willwood 12.88" 6 piston discs, manual master w/ 7/8" bore
Rebuilt and powdercoated the subframe
GM tilt steering column from GM Tilt. Budnik wheel
Newer late model power steering unit "iroc"
New fuel tank
Stainless fuel and brake lines.
BB heater core.
lots of new nuts and bolts.
Working on the old school 421" engine build now, built on a Dart SHP block.
Scat forged rotator, H beam cleranced rods. Hyd roller.
Most likely going with a TKO 600 and sticking with mechanical heim joint linkage.
I doesn't take long to make a mess
I did'nt cut back too much on the beer I guess.
Thats about it for now,
I'll have more when I get the engine assembled,I still need to figure out what heads to get.
