Started on the drivers side yesterday. Removed the UBJ, bump stop, shock ( was leaking), spring etc. Stripped the frame rail, control arms, firewall etc. Prepped and painted it all. Now today, Ive gotta put all the new stuff in! Then I can move onto the rear!

New grill is almost finished. Just started on the bumper today. New hood will be here Monday. CAI came yesterday along with a new '66 emblem Smile. You guys may not be excited, but I am!!! A few things to finish on the list. I ordered a new steering rebuild kit today along with some POR15 finally! Need new tires too. In need of a good condition air dam center section still. If no one here has one, I'll just swing by the junk yard tm.

I don't really like to be sneaky or secretive about my project. That way others have the opportunity to look at and read about what's going on. Kinda how I learned about these cars. Reading and looking at pictures! I'm not a shock and awe car guy. I may not say where I got something, or how I made something. That way its not copied exactly. But, there arent too many bolt on things in this community that we havnt seen a million times already. Like a black impala SS with cross flag emblems on the fenders, or a caprice with a plain old black impala SS grill. Not knockin, just telling the truth. The hood I chose is just that. An everyday bolt on.

gotcha. You make a good point about sharing info though...

Its really a shame how many talented guys out there are doing some extraordinary things but wont take a few minutes out of there day to share with the rest of us. But thats life.

Well, in my attempt to stay neutral on that Steve, I didn't say those mods weren't a good idea, or don't look good. Just we've all seen it. But yeah, I'm big on sharing info. Since we are on the topic...Kinda like when I send a PM to someone about something they did, posted about, or whatever, and they don't fuckin reply. We can all tell if the message was read or not via sent vs out box. Or, when someone posts a question about a mod or product, and there's ZERO replies. 300 views tho like no one has EVER done what is being asked about. But that can be another thread some other time. I do my best to help out when I'm personally contacted. Ask mojumbo or even SS impala nitrous to name a couple.

Ha! Thanks Mike. Only progress I've made is finishing the grill today. I hurt my back doing the drivers side tear down the other day, but should be back at it tm and Monday. The grill isn't too bad for my first one. I'm not 100% on it tho. I'll install it anyway and make another one in the mean time. What a collection of grills I've got now. Always looking to buy more btw.

Got the new drivers side ZQ8 bump stop, shock, spring, and UBJ. All bolted together. Still need to strip and paint the inner fender and install a bunch of other junk. Inner air dams painted (until it cracks and flakes off). Has anyone had to use washers when installing UBJ's? I also found the front frame mount to be very loose. Probably my squeeking issue. Oh, and my new hood came today! I couldnt wait! All bolted up except the release spring, grill mounting structure, and grill. It took me and the wife about 30 minutes to swap. I did break the underhood light mount tho. Oops. Unfortunately, the hood came with a few small shipping dents. Nothing the body shop can't fix. I'm not too bothered by it, but I did email the company. NEMF delivered it btw.

Na. Like I said, its not that big a deal. I realize its something I bought that has a little damage from shipping. The 9C1 has small dents and dings all over the place as you could imagine. They aren't to noticeable, kinda fits in lol, but once the car thaws out after winter, its going for body work and paint finally.

The paint and body work for me is the scarriest part. I can't imagine what its going to take to strip the lacquer and straighten the body Sad

I REFUSE to have more than 1 car like that.
In the futrure I see the ef-it attitude coming on..

Same here. I'm no good at body work (yet, I'm still young lol). It got a quick paint job in 2009 in cali for $380. I, well no one, can drive in a black and white car there. It looks like absolute Shit now. The roof is pealing and the white looks like a bird took a nasty dump. The old trunk lid faded fast too along with the hood having big paint bubbles. Plus the door jambs are still white cuz I love to hear the haters talk hahaha! No worry. I'm not worried about the cost, but I'm also not too concerned about how it looks now after a good wash and detail. If I drive it around, it'll get dents and scratches. That's fine with me. It's not a beauty queen and it never will be. The Monte Carlo on the other hand, will be immaculate. For some reason, they are waaaaaay cheaper to build. And, a lot simpler! Oh, and I can't wait to get my son in his metal pedal car in the driveway....

Installed the hood release spring, grill mounting stuff, and hood latch lever. POR15 came in today along with my front end parts. Bummer tho. I broke the grill I've been working on. So, no custom grill. Ended up having to cut it short to go to work tonight, then had to leave work an hour after I started. At the hospital with my son now.

Thanks. His Dr. called this morning cuz the hospital diagnosed something they didnt check for...idiots.

I should be back hammering away at the project once we get home from the doctors today. This heat lately is oppressive. Makes working out in the driveway a big PITA. Matt, I'm sure we can share that pain.

EXACTLY. Lol! My wife doesn't hug me while working outside. You should see my "white" kitchen door. I've got cargo shorts I wear that were new, now are all worn through, all holes, and stained. FYI, white cotton tees ARE disposable items just like latex gloves Hahaha.

It's funny you say that! I'm the opposite. I wreck all my white t shirts from when I was in the Marines. I weigh about 25 lbs heavier NOW lol. Ive got sooooo many shirts!

I installed the Buick brace today, took the tie rods and sleeves off. I didn't feel like going to the parts store to get a pickle fork, so, I just dicked around more or less. Removed the headlights in preparation for the bumper removal, figured out why the grill wasn't seating properly, and degreased the engine cradle and surrounding area.

And, my new OEM air dam sides came today. Took 2 weeks for some reason, and the box was destroyed. USPS sucks. I ended up giving the guy on the big forum an attitude via PM. Oops. Oh well.... worth the $50 IMO.

Everything underthe car with it. Then take it for a drive down a sandy road.

Picked up the proper front end tools at advance today. Got the center link out. I installed new tie rod ends, sleeves, and center link. Started painting more of the frame ie engine cradle. Stripped the inner fender too. I ordered a new OEM center air dam section as well. So, that's complete. Lil Ron emailed me today. Tail lenses are lookin good. He's just gotta polish them up and then ship em.

Heres the only few picks from the last couple days.








Old SS spring with one coil cut.


And heres my rough draft grill idea. Didnt work out tho. But, its a solid foundation for my next idea!

Well, the rain is holding out long enough for me to finish cleaning and painting the drivers inner fender. I may install it tm. Then we can finally get off jack stands and have a matching set of wheels again. New OEM center air dam section came today along with NOS manual window regulator for the drivers door. I dont need it, yet, but it was cheap, still in the box from the Michigan plant , and sealed in a GM plasti wrap. Put away for safe keeping. I figure it'll be a pretty hard thing to find once I DO need one. The door panel and OEM crank handles are hard enough.

Engine bay is almost back together. Drivers inner fender re installed, along with computer, tray, new mud guard, washer bottle, everything in that vicinity in original, or better condition. Firewall is painted for the most part. About 1/2 of the passenger side is all por15'd ( door jambs and pinch welds ). Put the OEM ss spoiler back on. Got brackets for the third brake light idea. Broke the washer tube that runs in between the spray nozels, a nos one is on its way from michigan. Cowl still needs to be stripped and painted. All the intake junk, alternator, belt, and some small things need to be installed. Found out today ( since the engine has been under a cover for about a month ) that I somehow smashed the cts in half. I guess I'll add it to the parts list. Pics to follow...at some point.

It lives!!! Started right up with no troubles! Filled the overflow tank up with water so 1) I dont waste $ if there's a leak 2) it's just gonna get flushed anyway. Even with all the messing around with the harness and sensors, I had no issues! Kinda surprised. Cadillac horns work too. I'm pretty happy with the progress so far. I actually did ALL of the work myself this time. The CEL hasn't come on from the AIR system yet. I've got until October to keep my inspection current. I think that's enough time to send out or buy a PCM. Also bought a new cts. $15 @ advance. Funny thing tho. I've had this friggin 2 prong connector with about 2 feet of wire hanging out for the last few days. I couldn't figure out what it went to. Tonight at work I realized its to the underhood light that's on the old hood lol!

.... The beautiful thing about MA state inspection is , you go and get one when ever you want. So before you pull the PCM go and get a new sticker that will keep you current til Aug.2013. If you end up with a check engine light after it won't matter for a sticker Arrow

This is very true. As you have first hand knowledge. Oct is kinda my "motivation" deadline to get all the parts and stuff in. I'm in no rush. I don't drive the car anymore ( still registered/ insured). It's been tucked in the driveway for about 4 months.

I'm gonna buy a PCM and send it out the first week of next month. I don't know how interchangeable the different PCMs are as far as reprogramming, but if anyone has a known good one Lmk. I have no problem buying one from pcmforless or pcmperformance.
