    My days were switched because I got a promotion at work and will be training for the next few weeks until I get a new set schedule. So I had to fly today. I cut the front bumper support in half and got it and the cover bolted on. I got the rear bumper lightened a little and got it and the cover on. I removed the lock cylinder and the rest of the cables for the rear hatch. While I was back there I bolted the license plate panel on as it does not weigh much and helps complete the rear of the car better. I welded up a looped rod that sticks out of the back of the car so when you pull it it releases the lock on the rear hatch so it can open. I got the front struts modified and put together with the coilover sleeves. I got the new rear shocks put on the car as well.


    I cut the bracing out of the hood to help lighten it. I did some selective welding to help strengthen the hood some. I also spent a little time and had to raise the hood in the back a little to help clear the timing belt. It was either that or cut and notch the hood for the belt. I can deal with the hood sitting a little higher so I don't make the hood uglier than it already is. The hood was raised by welding in the hood pins to get the hood to the height I needed. I also got the lower front body trim under the bumper bolted on. I guess when the previous owner took the car apart he lost the middle piece under the bumper so I am going to get some more metal and just weld a new piece of sheet metal in the to complete the look of the front end. I did not take many pictures today as nothing exciting really happened. Just details no one really gets to see. I am going to try to tape the car off and paint it tomorrow. If i can get it done I will share those with everyone.

    This is what a polished turd looks like? Better than it was before.

    Mythbusters inspired me. They proved you can polish a turd.

    Got the clutch and flywheel installed. It is an ACT 3200 with an XTD flywheel and unsprung six puck disc. I have done some other small things as well while saving up. I finished the new j-pipe for the 14b, got the rear floor almost ready for the new fuel tank which should be back from finish welding any day now. I got the ghetto fabulous trunk release made. I also got the new EGT bungs welded on the T3 manifold for the 14b. I got the rear hood pins welded in and have decided to do two more on the front of the hood. As much as I like the way the hood flips forward but, it makes working on the car a pain. With any luck if all my measuring was right I will install the transmission tomorrow and work on making the mount for it.

    Not a ton to report as I have been saving money. A few small things here and there. Today I made the transmission mount and finally installed the transmission. I got the axles installed, the suspension height adjusted and the wheels on. The only thing left to fire it now are to install the wiring harness(I plan on doing that this week) and plumb the fuel system. If I get the fuel tank back soon I can have it running very quickly. Inching closer. All the pictures turned out dark today of the transmission and mount. Here is the car sitting back on all four for the final time.

    Unless anything crazy happens it should run in the next day or two.

    It has been pretty neat so far. I hope it all goes as well as I see it in my head.

    Always love watching your ugly piles of crap come together and run great numbers with some off the wall setups! Look forward to seeing what this one will do.

    yes basically! he runs a setup like a turbo drag car does. Lots of fuel, lots and lots of fuel - methanol cools the intake charge enough that you don't need an intercooler. Look at all the big hp turbo cars - they all run no intercooler for a reason!

    I'm sure steve will chime in about it.
