    Yeah, I didn't think about the LS part. I have vacuum issues due to my cam. I wish the motor that came in my car wasn't newer so I could go the LS route too.;)

    Hello Cars, I'm using the Hotchkis TVS susp. It's for the front and rear. The front is 2 ins drop , although not everyone reports getting that. The rear is suspost to be 1.5 inchs. Looking at mine I belive I'm gonna be close to what Hotchkis says. I'v yet to have the car setting on its wheels yet with all the weight on it, but I'll soon be doing that and will post up some pics then.

    Slow down... Heck I got to get off my butt and get moving! My plan was 6 months after I started putting her back together. I started on this car back in Sept 2011. Me and 2 friends tore it down and had it to media blasting in 2 days. Then I started the work on putting it all back together in mid Nov. Its now past mid March..so lets see thats about 4 months. I'v only got 2 months left and alot of work left to be done. I started on the rest of the front sheet metal and wiring the last 2 days. Soon as I finish the front sheet metal up I want to get the Ls fired up and everything bleed off and working. What makes me thing that I may not reach my 6 month goal is the block sanding and then the wet sending before paint! I hate sanding and will look for any reason to not do it:eek: I want to have this bad boy in paint no latter then the middle of next month. Spring will soon be springing and I WANT TO DRIVE:confused:

    [​IMG] Put the hood hinges and hood on. The gaps between the fender and the hood are way to large so I'm gomma have to come up with a way to close them some. I'm thinking I will just build off the fender with some long pieces of sheet metal to close the gap and then just duraglass the tops
