I just realized this is in the wrong section. lol! Very Happy

So, some progress. Slowly.... I got the seat mounts figured out. Bobby came over the other day and showed my how to use my welder. Wink They went in pretty easy. Had to cut off a couple factory seat studs, and drill a couple holes. I welded in some thread inserts for 3/8-16 bolts in the holes I drilled to make it secure. Now the interior is out again so I can dynomat the floor. Here's some pics...

Her seemingly permanent position.


And pics of the seat mounts.










I am in the process of cleaning and dynomatting now. Maybe the interior will go back in tomorrow?

Doubt it. Razz

Heat it up with a heat gun or hair dryer and peel it off. It's just glued on. Hang onto it thou, RM guys are always looking for it.

Oh man, what a bitch that was...

I ran mine through the factory controller, 3 different wiring diagrams and lots of wiring on the living room floor while watching Monk. It sucked.

So then, I assume, you don't remember the wiring? Razz

Ok, so I have the carpet back in and 3 of the 4 bolts on the seats in. I screwed up with the thread on the seatbelt bolt locations. It's not 12mm x 1.5, nor is it 12mm x 1.75, nor is it 1/2 13.... Grrr. SO CLOSE!!!!!

Here are a few pics of the final mounts.









Like I said, I also have the carpet in. It's looking closer to being done!

So thanks to BillyMac coming down today, some progress was made! Smile Plan was to get the new rear in and go for a ride. Yeah, not so much. As per usual with all things me, nothing was easy or went as planned. Razz

We started with a pile of nice parts...




UMI upper and lower control arms, Russell stainless braided brake lines, Gabriel Ultra shocks and the built rear.

Pics of the uppers as a comparison.



The old axle came out pretty easily.


And that's when it stopped being easy. The rotors has rusted from sitting so long, so I had to find a place to cut them. Ended up at NTB and they did em for 10 bucks a piece. I got back to the house, and the we didn't have the right bubble flare tool for the brake lines. So off to sears. No bubble flare tool. None of the parts stores either. So then we just ended up getting some long bubble flare lines and cutting and rebending them again. And by we, I mean Billy. Smile

We also didn't have the brackets for the brake lines, where the hard lines met the braided lines. Ugh. So I had some from the old rear out of the slut, and we modified them to fit. Plumbed the lines to em and we were good! Or so we thought... Rolling Eyes

So we put in the new uppers, lowers and shocks. Some fighting and colorful language was involved, but they went in. Then we put the rear and, and with some creative prying and hammering, it went in! Yes, you CAN put an SS disc rear in a wagon!!!! But, I uh, forgot to take pics. Oops.

So here is your clearance with the SS wheels on it. There's about a 1/2" clearance between the tire and the frame. And plenty from the tire to the wheelwell lip.


And look! Discs on a wagon!!!


But, there's still some not-so-great news. The friggin' Trick Flow super duper rear end cover hits the gas tank heats shields. Ugh. But that's ok, because it hits the gas TANk, too! Boo!!!! And the brake line brakets we made are in the way of the damn exhaust on the driver's side. Fail. Plus the garage was a freakin' mess and we were searching for tools and crap more than we were working. I take the blame. Oh well...

I ordered a set of stainless hard lines tonight when I got in, and Al said he had a set of the brackets that I need. I need to get a stock rear end cover, too. So when that all gets collected, I'll get back under there and finish it. We didn't even attempt the Panther sway bar today, but I will when I'm back at it. I'll get some more pics then, too.

Sunday I'll be out there cleaning the garge and putting all my tools back where they belong. Today was ridiculous!

Billy busted his ass today, and I wish we had more to show for it, but I had a fun day wrenching and running around. Thanks Bill, you rock! Smile

It was my pleasure Bill. Arrow Too bad about the cover and our home made brackets. I guess I know why the factory routes the line the way they do, and don't use rear end covers with preload. Rolling Eyes

I have to say, the sedan rear end went in pretty smoothly. And with the BFH, it was guaranteed. Making perfect brake lines twice to still fail sucked. Trying to find the wrench I needed was fun too. Wink 12 hours= 6-working, 3-making lines twice, and going to the store to get more brake line, 3-spent finding tools. cheers I had a great time. Arrow

Sounds like every project I ever did Razz
I found a trick to making bubble flares yourself from none other than youtube. If you use a good quality flare tool (like the craftsman one) it can be done by flaring the line on the back side of the tool. It's easier to watch the video than read my ramblings about how to do it.

FWIW I re-did my whole riviera's brake lines with standard inverted flares not realizing everything was a bubble flare until the end. That was 2 years ago and nothing has leaked yet.

Sounds like every project I ever did Razz
I found a trick to making bubble flares yourself from none other than youtube. If you use a good quality flare tool (like the craftsman one) it can be done by flaring the line on the back side of the tool. It's easier to watch the video than read my ramblings about how to do it.

FWIW I re-did my whole riviera's brake lines with standard inverted flares not realizing everything was a bubble flare until the end. That was 2 years ago and nothing has leaked yet.
Info we could have used.......... YESTERDAY! Mad Razz

Great info. Bill bought the Craftsman set, but I only knew how to do single, and double.

But now we've gotta see the panther bar go on the sedan rear in the wagon and the wagon move and go vroom vroom again!

Nice progress Bill! (M) Laughing Glad it's coming along Crovo!

I'd say that the Impala rear would work. But I think a 9C1 rear would be too narrow. You'd have to run some pretty good sized spacers to put the wheel back where it should be in the wheelwell. Or just get different offset wheels out back with a TON of lip! Very Happy

Hey, a ton of lip could look pretty cool! But only f you still get a ton of tire in there too.

It's ALIVE!!!!!!



FINALLY finished it up tonight. Those friggin Subaru seats were holding me up every time I went into the garage. I finally abandoned them this week and got Jay's old seats from Chris for the time being. That was all the motivation I needed to finally spend a few nights under and around and in it to get it done.

I finished about 1215 tonight!!!!

Pulled it out of the garage and went for a ride. Put 35 bucks of 93 octane in it and drove it pretty easy. That converter will certainly take some getting used to. Wink The brake pedal is SO much nicer now with the stainless lines out back and the rear disc. It'll be even better when I get the front lines on and do the stealth bolt and metering rod. Oh yeah, and the Vette brakes up front. Wink

She's quick. Even at 1/4 and half throttle. Oh yes. Smile

Here's a few shots of the rear end all buttoned up...












She sits a LOT lower in the back now, too, without the air ride... Has a bunch of crap in the trunkal area though, too...

Now, I'm going to bed. Felt good to drive her again! So stoked!!!!

Here's a few more pics I took... Proof!




And oh... Shit.

Congrats! Just in time for the round up!

Do us a favor. Do a "write up" on the stealth bolt/ metering rod mod. Vette brakes if you will to. I know I'd certainly appreciate it! My mods for next summer...brakes!!!! I can't wait!!

Thanks guys. Smile

Yeah, it feels awesome to drive it again! And no leaks sitting in the driveway all night!!!! Smile Has a couple exhaust leaks, but that's ok as it's getting the Jardine exhaust this week anyways. (One less thing to move) Razz

Tim, those are just stock sized wheels. I couldn't run the Coy's in the back because the backspacing was off with the narrower rear end. I need to get a 20mm or so spacer made for the back. And I didn't want to run SS wheels in the back and Coy's out front, unless they were drag radials... Wink As it is, I'm running 5/16" spacers out back now. Didn't need em, but I had em and it looks a little better pushed out a bit.

And yeah... Not looking forward to cleaning the garage! scratch

Exhaust is rattling a bit, but I will be dropping the car off at Lou's Monday to install the catback for me and make some tail pipes...

Nice dude! It's funny that was your motivation to get going on the car again, as redoing my truck's driver's seat was what booted me in the ass to start finishing things I'd planned to do on that...

Lou's? I thought you'd been going to a "better" exh. shop in NH???

I have to get the white Caprice's exh. fixed before January. Surprised

I was using a better shop for years, but it's 25 miles away from Nashua. Sad So Lou's it is. They're not bad at this one, actually. And for some reason, they like me, so... I go there.

The car has a slight misfire on the passenger side and pops out the exhaust and intake a little bit. The rockers on that side are making a racket, so I probably need to adjust them a bit. Hopefully it's just a valve not closing all the way from a loose rocker. I'm not going to worry about it til after the move, unless I come up with a spare hour or so somewhere to do it.

I've got about 20 miles on it. It is FUN! Not as quick as the Impala was with that motor, but that's understandable with the 4L60 and 3.42's instead of the t56 and 4.10's... And I can "flash" the converter while driving, give it a quick blip and it revs and falls but doesn't make the car accelerate. I always loved the sound of the cars at the track that did that. Wink

And for some reason, my frikken alternator is chirping. Driving me nuts. Boo.

Ha, I keep forgetting that Hampstead (that's the one you mentioned I think) was that far from Nashua. I'm always thinking in my head of going TO New Hampshire, not across it. Laughing

Bugs to be worked out aside it's awesome you've got this on the road again- One of the first pics I took at the first meet I went to:
