Assembly is the part of the work and the site that I will enjoy building the most.   Things come together.   Here we are putting things into the car, not taking them out.

 

The site has been recently updated to break up the assembly so that it is more organized.   Here I will detail the Suspension and brake assembly.   You can see the Engine and Transmission on a separate page.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

Putting the differential and rear end back in.

 

12 April 2005 - Some picture updates.

 

Front End nearly complete.   Adjustable upper control arms.

 

Waiting for the spindles to come back from powder coating.   We have cleaned

the surfaces.  We will apply primer and undercoat.  

Do I put on Steel Braided Brake Lines??
