Hey guys, No, I havent gotten a chance to get the engine in the car yet. We did end up getting the 331 stroker though. Were hopeing to get started on it soon. Teh first order of business is to pull the car out get it all cleaned up, and strip the engine bay, trunk bay, and the underside of the car.
I have used this before with excellent results on a minitruck that layed frame. I really like the product and the way it lays down, so Im doing the engine bay, underbody, trunk bay, inner fenders, and interior in this liner. Its lightweight, and really cuts down on road noise, and its fairly cheap.
After that the next step is to go through the engine and make sure everything looks good, find a trans, get them mated up, and installed in the car. Gonna have to make my own trans x-member, or buy one.
I will post lots more pics as soon as we get her cleaned up.
I wanna ask you guys a question. The picture below is the shape of my door panel inserts, and they are warping from the humidity down here. What do you think it would look like in a 1/4 inch maple or birch ply. I can do wood work so staining them, and finishing them wont be a problem. Im just not sure it will look good.
