Thanks....Wait...you did had one Smile

Ran the 6 & 8 wires in a cooling tube loom & re-fit the pass side header.....SOB
the 4/6 runners practically married to the brake line at the frame, have to re-route the loom that has the temp gauge, solenoid hot & knock sensor, it cant go down so it'll have to jump between the 6 & 8 runners, NBD
Glad I started with this side, I couldnt possibly milk the drivers side this long. Razz

My 96 is screaming for mods & I'm doing this car???

OK we have headers, no touching, no hammering,
VERY close on passenger side frame due to manufacturer welding on the header.
Hope it doesnt hit when the motor torques.
Sorry for the cell pics, all I have to work with.





Why on earth do wire manufacturers make the #7 wire so looooong?

Had to extend the passenger side O2 sensor harness.
Cats go on next & maybe I'll trial fit the exhaust.

Working on pinion angle now.....reading about that makes me feel stoopid. scratch

Hood has been de-cancerized
New wheels
Only thing left is the SPOILER..... Sleep

Didnt take a pic until I had sprayed in the rust convertor & undercoating
(tape was to keep the weld area clean)

I left the sheet metal where it's doubled up on the 3 pillars & left the sill as well.






I formed some full length rockers & stitched them in

Then went back & added the B pillar piece where the rust had spread beyong the rockers (removed the double thickness metal there so re-did it to stiffen the middle a little)







Pics of the 1/4's must be on my work PC

Aahhh...I may've made it sound like I personally did that.

Many trades yes....welding is not one of them.

I do alot of standing around & pointing tho... Very Happy

The rockers wwere confirmed worthless on day 1 when I used that area to jack the body. Even tho you couldnt really even SEE them, I figured I'd experiment on this car.

I know EVERYONE hates fiberglass but I wasnt willing to sacrifice good 1/4's on THIS car.
These bonded on very nicely.....A skim coat of the appropriate product to blend them in & .....done!

Did I mention the rockers are made out of stainless?
Matt will never be fighting THIS battle again... Arrow




Finished driver side, but with black rockers & black sill plates...its not very exciting

Tell him he should wait for it to be quality! Wink Then again, it'd be good to get used to it before he gets the license and jumps in. I have a feeling it'll be much different from the wagon training


And that's a good use of stainless! John DeLorean would be proud.

Saw him the other day coming off of 125 as I got off of 93.

Must have a bolt threaded below the gas pedal or something because he was going too slow and didn't hang the turn by the North Intermediate School like me and my friends do. Pfft. Rolling Eyes

Please supply him with your cell # so he'll have someone to bail him out when the time comes. Cool

Ummm...if it was Saturday, he was picking up his grandmother for her 90th BDay party...she probably asked him why it didnt hang that turn too. Very Happy


Actually, he's only been driving since mid October.

I am thrilled that he has shown maturity while driving thus far. Arrow

Yes, it looks pretty good if you overlook the Rustoleum blended patches
Body shop wanted a G note to make it look new.....he couldnt afford it.
Thats ALL him now tho.
That car has seen more love (& wax) in the past 5 months then it did in the 15 years I owned it. Laughing

Check the tread depth on the rears and you'll know how he's driving. He just doesn't want to lose the car, I didn't do anything really fun until I turned 18. Same mindset probably. Laws in this state are strict for underage drivers.
