Recently I have labeled all of the wires under the hood to see what I can delete and what I have to keep. I am now looking at making a new cross member between the lower control arms. The oil pan is in the way to go straight across so i am contemplating going around the pan on both sides or making one that goes below the pan with square tube. I'm not sure how low that will hang when the car is on the ground.
I am also looking at purchasing a new tube bender. I am looking between the affordable bender or the JD2. I need to make a tube front end and roll cage. I will also use it on other projects, but not for daily use. Any opinions here would be appreciated if any of you have used one or the other.
I have made a new drive line which i can take a picture later of.
I am also looking for some bushings for the whole car. I think that is where my "lean" is coming from in the rear as the sub frame is straight.
More to come as my goal is to have this car finished by April. This is our first drift event here is South Dakota.

We don't have too many driveshaft shops here. Only 2 actually that would do the work. I did the same thing but it cost $300 out the door. That's pretty typical here.
The car is going well. I have been working pretty hard trying to get it done for a show/drift event weekend which is basically 3 weeks away. I am building a front end currently, trying to get the fenders and doors aligned so I can make new mounts for the bumper, headlights and everything else up there. I wish the car hadn't been wrecked, this part of the process is taking forever. I am also looking for the rear subframe mounts. I have been trying to take that apart to see if the subframe was bent or if the mounts are just bad. If I take it apart I want to have new mounts ready to just put back in.
I also fixed the steering wheel adjuster. It would not stay put and every time I drove the car the steering wheel would freely move up and down. I pulled it all apart and ground the backing plate. Works great now and doesn't seem to want to work its way out.
I'll update some pictures soon. Once it actually looks like there is progress.

Some of these pictures and updates are months old but I'll do my best to catch the thread up.
I ordered a set of block hugger headers from summit. I was afraid that if I did a full length header I would run in to problems with fitment. As you can see (for now) I had to modify cylinder 8 to work around the steering box. I will eventually go rack and pinion but right now I just want the car on the ground. All of the wearable items in the steering were just replaced by the previous owner. I am just going single 3" exhaust out the back. Plus I may run a power adder down the road. This prompted me to run the exhaust from the drivers side, around the front of the motor to the passenger side and connect to one single outlet.
