    I bought a 91 LX and saved it from leftover drag racer crusher hell. I think I got a great deal! The car has 4.10's in the 8.8, aftermarket control arms, drag shocks, re-enforced welds, 4pt roll bar, tubular sub-frame connectors, drive shaft loop, red urthane everywhere and a really straight body.

    Here are some begining pics, I hope to have more as I progress:

    My first step is to clean and smooth under the hood, nothing major like a show car. Wish me luck...

    Starting the Spot Weld

    Had to stop here, my welder stopped feeding the wire and I was too tired to figure it out.

    Had help today... Didn't get much done but had a great time with the help!

    Got the panel welded in, grinded down, fillered up and smoothed out... Sounds like something at waffle house =)

    Took a lot longer than I thought it would, I had to go get a new grinder.

    Great work! Noticed the crumpled cowl panel, did you have a hood fly up?

    It was like that when I got it. I have a spare but i think i can fix this one. Haven't decided yet. Probably try to fix it and see how it looks.

    Thank you!

    Yes, I am hiding all the wires and maybe the brake line? It is a carb car so don't know what I am going to do with that big hole for the FI harness, didn't really want to weld it up in case I ever sell the car and someone wants to go FI. Also got a manual brake kit from UPR. Not too sure about my MSD HVC box and coil, probably put it back on the drivers fender, i like the look of it.

    just cut another piece of that sheet metal to fit, rivet it in place with some sealant underneath and if you ever need to you can drill the rivets out and pull it off.

    Thanks!

    Yea, it looks that way =) I posted it all at once, I have it over at the Corral also. I normally stay over there but following trbofox reminded me of how very cool this place it. I love both but this one has far more inspiration project threads and a really cool sticky for organizing them, I can't get enough TBO.

    Got Paint!

    Got the paint on, I hope it flattens out more, everyone has been asking questions on the Paint Shop paints from Dupli-Color so I wanted to try it out. I already have the Hot-Rod Flat for the car but just wanted to see this stuff in action.
