    I haven’t been on here too much or updated in a while, but things have not been sitting idle. I haven’t really taken any photos because the current work isn’t very interesting. I redid the rear suspension, and got the rest of the frame prepared to go to powder coat. So, now that the frame is off at the powdercoater, I’m getting suspension and engine cleaned up and ready for frame assembly once it comes back.
    Got the engine cleaned up,shot some black on it, got the valve covers and intake polished and slapped all the shine bits on there.   Can’t wait for the frame to come back so I can see some of this stuff together.  Hopefully this week.

    Got the frame back from powder coating on Thurs.  Got the engine and trans and front suspension on this weekend.  I get my rear end back tomorrow, then I can make it a roller.

    You’ll have to excuse the suspension for now, once the car is done, you won’t be able to see the modern stuff, not even in the engine compartment.  I’m not against using some modern parts, but I am against seeing them.

    Thanks Ian.

    Haha, it only looks like that.  Thats actually the back of the driveway, as photographed from inside the garage.

    The house has a little bit of a weird layout due to past add ons.  It’s very long and kind of has 3 front doors.  Always funny to see the look of confusion on a solicitors face when they go to the second door and have the same person answer as the previous door.

    I hoped to get the frame to a roller tonight, but I’m an idiot and I ordered the wrong differential carrier for my new rear end gears, gotta wait a few days now.
