    Hey guys! i have been a lurker on here for about a year now, but never thought my car was worthy of posting. I AM ONLY 14 and have done all of the work by myself thus far. but now im really starting to make some progress worth noting,so i figured i would start a build thread to try and get me more motivated to spend more money on this thing!

    Heres what the car looked like when i bought it

    THEN AT THE NEXT STAGE(TOOK ME ABOUT A YEAR TO GET IT TO THIS POINT)

    Sure,it looked decent,but a car can never be nice enough!!!
    so i decided to start taking on a BIG CHALLENGE (especially since im only 14)
    my plans are to try to fund a 331 stroker for the car. i have already purchased all of my heads cam intake stuff but since im gonna be in there i might as well do it right the first time! i plan to smooth and paint the engine bay and hide the wiring harness as well.

    Heres where i am at as of now-

    I pulled off the drivers fender...man a LOT of trash gets caught up inside there!
    [​IMG]
    the car must have been hit pretty hard at some point. a pretty good bit of bondo is hiding up in there
    [​IMG]
    some surface rust too and some tack welds!!!!
    [​IMG]
    oh well. this will be getting cut out and having some scott rod fab panels put in anyways.
    tucked the drivers side harness
    [​IMG]
    stripped one of my VC's. plan on fully polishing them.

    Great work!

    If she's been whacked hard, make sure the thrust angle is still where it needs to be.

    Thanks Everybody!!!
    I fund it by working for my dad at his tire shop stocking the warehouses and doing random jobs. i also detail cars as much as i can. I work on every non-school day and on saturdays. I make $20 a day. I HAVE FUNDED THE ENTIRE CAR MYSELF with the exception of the front tires. $20 a day for 3 years plus what i get for christmas and what i make by detailing really adds up quick!!!

    Yeah! Way to go young blood. Everything looks great. Gald to see you are doing the work yourself. You will appreciate the car that much more. Keep up the good work and keep us posted on the progress.

    Thanks everybody for the kind words!!! it means a lot!
    Thanks. at first when i bought the wheels i thought i could just run a small spacer with the lincoln rotors and make them clear but after i got the rotors on they wouldnt even come close to clearing. i couldnt even come close to getting a lug nut on. so i had to get some 94 spindles, calipers, and rotors and do it right instead of cheaping out like i originally planned:D

    I am impressed with what you have done and like said above, you are doing things that grown men won't even try to do. Keep up the good work.

    Impressive, I also commend your efforts at your age :nice: if you need any help there are a lot of good guys on this site. Add a bump steer kit to your list with the UPR K-Member ;) you'll need it, make sure you buy the one that has the provisions for the sway bar.

    Ive polished a set of stock valve covers...Id never do it again. Way to hard to up keep and it took awhile to get them smooth enough to look good. I'd powder coat them or pick up a chrome set/
