    Plan was to punch it out to 408ci. Having issues deciding whether to budget build and keep lower end for a while or just buy rotating assembly and go 408. Plan is also for some turbos. Drive train will be this year. Bodywork will take forever!

    Yeah, it is difficult to keep track of all these parts. I always said I would have it neat and organized. Just not enough room to be that way. Struggle to keep stuff together. Lol.

    Made some progress. Then I hit another dead end when it came to the pitman arm removal. Need to pick up the tool to remove it. Have the steering box out of a newer z28 with the better ratio. This will be going on next.

    Thanks, yeah between work and family and house projects, it has been difficult. But it is good to see progress being made on it. Huge grin when I was able to roll it out of the garage. Back on wheels soon, then will be working on sheetmetal this winter if all goes as planned.

    Finally have some wheels on this thing. Progress has been slow. But that's what happens when life gets in the way. Some pictures. Next to do is get the subframe centered and snug it up. Start putting the front back together.

    Car finally off of rotisserie. Rear end all buttoned up ready to go back in. Realized I missed the front leaf spring pockets. They had to be sanded and are now being powdercoated along with a few other odds and ends. Using an oer install kit for rear end and everything is coming together nicely...

    Looking to assemble the front subframe pretty soon here. Going with an ls motor. I realized I should probably install motor mounts now before lower control arms. I no longer have the factory mounts that bolt to the subframe and will need new ones. I have read a number of posts about ls motors...
