The frame I sand blasted in december and it was painted in epoxy primer and chassis black. I need doors and a core support plus hood. Parts are expensive. I scored ralleye guages for it and just need two more expensive parts ...the antennae and the hidden headlight parts LOL. I will paint the car factory nightshade green and soon i will start on the underbody...the floors are great. I need to strip it and get cracken on that body LOL.

transmission is in!

Well, my car is now officially a stick shift. Big thank you to John S for the help. All that is left is getting the crossmember all the way in and then measuring for teh driveshaft. I needed to order new coated headers to work with my mechanical linkage for the clutch. It is nice to have a cool chrome shifter out of the floor.

Tranny swap

By 1984Montemaniac

Well, I just fished out the old auto for the 3rd time. Then I cleaned and degreaced all my floorboards from my rear main oil leak. Dang that crap adds up. 2 days to degrease and de rust...floors look ok, even have the factory blue overspray LOl along the sides. Next up tranny install.
