  1. Yep, still bent. Yes, I will redesign the rear. Sitting a little too tall. Haven't changed them because they are serving a purpose for now. The body is on the chassis now and I have to do a little more trimming on the firewall. I may just bend the next ones as well, Xtreme, just to get you fired up. (haha) Just kidding.
  2. Here she is. Ready for the body. Soon the hard part will begin. http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/D1499F6F-BC7E-4530-8E22-F93742368AF3.jpg http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/95BD567C-266E-4471-A75A-13E69DD084D7.jpg http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/59A91D5E-E279-4BCF-AC9F-BECE2CC4EE97.jpg
  3. The roller has landed. http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/EF4C4A0B-0FA9-4517-8591-D3EB927AC944.jpg
  4. I'll just post this here... It's a video of John' s car passing a GTR at the LVMS during the Optima Street Car Invitational.
  5. I'll let Convette post some. I've been sworn to secrecy.
  6. No, the SAI wasn't measured. I didn't have the steering rack, front brakes or a means to hold the air in the shocks. The toe is out as well. The two of us had to synchronize our turns as best we could. The only measurements I was worried about was front caster and camber, rear camber and thrust angle. Everything else can be tuned.
  7. Its coming soon. I have to install the floors next and any additional work that I need to do on the underside. Trying desperately not to get ahead of myself. I'm eager to get the body on as well. I have an illustrator I'm working with to draw the concepts of the final body design and it would help greatly for him to see the actual roller. Stay tuned. I also have a facebook page. "580Kongquest" It's easier to share info to those outside the forum. Richard
  8. What is your budget and resource level? Resource meaning tools, skills, space and additional labor (help). That will determine how much of a swap you can do. What are your goals for the car? Race, Show, Daily Driver? Its really not about what has been overdone or cheap initially. It's the length of time you intend to keep the car and the ability to keep it maintained. The LS swaps are so popular due to the overwhelming aftermarket support available. I encourage you to research more about the engine you choose. It's going to make or break you. Richard
  9. The rear before any adjustments were made. http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/75165123-B413-47CF-8589-254F18018DB3.jpg Rear. Spot on. http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/2863B67A-EB36-46C9-B10D-AED45D94779B.jpg Both of the readings. Top is the front and bottom is the rear. The red on the toe was due to not having the steering rack installed. http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/autotr8er/Mobile%20Uploads/0FB5EBEE-4641-4769-8016-DAE709E4DBBF.jpg
