Finally just going to start a thread on my build. First I started with a 1973. When I first signed up on this page thats what I had. All primer and holes and 295/50/15's sticking out the sides. I loved that car. I live in colorado and had a buddy who owned 'the bone yard' in commerce citry. He liked that I raced it hard and kept needing engines, or trannys or other parts. Years later when I was 20 I sold it to my friend. Bought a 1970 camaro SS. numbers matching throughout. I thought I wanted to go stock and spent alot of time getting ready for that. I went back and for so many times. In the end I am going with a restomod cause I know if I went totally stock I would change little things till I did it twice. So I am just going to short cut it. The car was 4000 in 1994. I bought it from a sales man at O'Meara ford on 104th. He sold it personally but worked there. The car was beautiful. No flaws that could be easily seen. Cut to chase. I knew driving it the bright orange 350 that was numbers matching felt weak and needed a rebuild. I knew it was wondering some and needed front end parts and front springs were shot. I knew in one wheel house in the metal around the wheel looked wrong size. Too fat in bottom and not uniform. Minor but noticeable to someone who had spent alot of time with a 2nd gen. You could see some faint lines in the heavily buffed paint. Turns out the car was keyed by his girl friend little while ago and he had the car lot guys buff it all out. You could not tell unless you got REAL close and even than it was hard to tell. I drive the car like that for years. Eventually I put it in my garage and left it there when I got into work stuff heavy. I was working 75 hour weeks between IBM and USWest/Qwest. Making good money but no time. The car sat and now the lines where clear as day. Fast forward a couple decades. The car moved a couple garages. As I found parts online on ebay I put them in car. Like a full GM original weather strip set. Etc. Now I have some bonus money (years ago now) and want to start. So I started a few threads on here and decided to go LS and get all my stuff ready before starting a build thread. I tried to get my brother in law to put in my DSE Quadra link. Hes doing some body man work in a shop and mechanical too. I was in Cali fighting projects in the mountain fires which was fun. He started it in my garage and I got a call. He said he could not do it. too much work and he wanted to golf on weekends. He would help here and there but this was weekends of work he could not commit to it no matter money I paid. I like metal work and decided to just do it myself. In the start I had the inner wheel houses cut out. and started on the lower brackets. Being really careful. Reading every post I could get my hands on about it. DSE has tons of pics on site. Well I was good at it. BUT I went to weld in first piece and quickly saw I was no way ready for welding the thing. Blew a small hole in the frame metal. Not the body thing stuff. Called around and found a pro who would work in my garage when I called for 75 a hour. He did all welding I did rest. Here is the suspension done...Took me months, I would say this was three months of weekend except for a two week spot I was out of state. Every single weekend. All after work nights. TONs of work. I know I know, enough talk lets see the work.... Be Easy, I am real good shade tree mech but I am a IT worker. replace parts and work on stuff all day but first time creating my own suspension.
