So I sent him that just because. My uncle is putting a turbo on his fox body mustang that has a 5.3 so he's all over me to do it too. I told him to send me all the supporting mods and I'd do it. I'm just going to leave it NA for now to try and crawl back out of the rabbit hole.

    Who said I'm faster than you?!?!?!

    Besides, he's got 9 pages just to get to an intake! How many pages do you think we can get to before he gets to the front suspension!?!?!?


    Sorry Ryan, couldn't help myself!

    Yeah, wtf is this clown waiting for??? Oh wait. LMAO!

    I actually ripped the lower control arms and coils out last week. I cut the front coils down but then had bad feelings of tearing the dumb thing apart again in the spring when I order the drop springs. I placed the order yesterday for some Custom Works 2g front and rear springs. It comes with delrin upper rear shackle bushings, new u bolts, spring locator which gets rid of the rubber pad these have. Now I have to order delrin upper control arm bushings. I have ball joints already so I've got a good start on it. I got some new performance shocks from napa but I'm leaning on getting some better ones. At least those are easy enough to change later though.

    Today all I got done to it was I installed the LH drip rail, fixed the driver's door outer handle, and ripped off some old weather stripping. I've been gathering my scrap up since no one else should need my trailer now. I want to haul the crap in before it freezes to the ground. Since our skid loader is broke I improvised a lifting device but it is redneck to say the least. LMAO! Maybe I'll be lucky enough to have 10 tons by the time I'm done taking it in so it will buy something cool. Like wheels or something.

    Funny guy! HAH! 8-)

    Did the scrap price move up? I haven't checked in a while, it was down all summer. I only have a small pile but I get tired of it just sitting there.

    I checked for some old pics but they must be on an old defunct computer, I did a set of rear suspension bushing in UHMW plastic for a fella in Canada. I don't remember if they had a separate sleeve or not. but it cut very nice and left a smooth finish as I remember. Maybe once I scrap the metal pile I'll snag some delrin and see how it is on the lathe.

    Last time I checked scrap was $85/ton here. I'm almost afraid to call and see now. But, I'm tired of it setting around too. I have lots of stuff that is going this time too. I have 3 sterling 10.25 rear ends I was using for parts, an IFS front suspension from a 99 F350, a 460 Farmall Diesel rear end and short lock, plus 2 big piles of misc junk. Oh yeah, I have a 79 K10 suburban that is getting stripped and going. There's one less project to jack with.

    Over the weekend I didn't get much time at all to work on the car. I did get the LH lower door weather stripping on. I shut the door to see how it fit/shut and low and behold my door wouldn't open again. I had a problem back in January where I locked the door and it wouldn't open at all. This morning I went and robbed the LH door off my parts car. I think I'll steal the latch out of it to put in my door to make this problem go away. I did manage to get my door back open and it is currently working. But I don't want to deal with this when the door is all back together.

    I looked online to see what guys were doing to put the holes in new door cards and really didn't see much info on it. A guy I work with mentioned I should get some hollow punches to do them. He was right. They worked out pretty slick. So far I have the LH door panel done. I had to paint/dye it to match the rest of my interior. I also had to do some work to my lower plastic arm rest panel. It was warped bad on the ends where the retaining screws go. My door cards were recovered so they were extra thick. When they installed the screws, the screws sucked that panel in and over time it curled the ends. I used a heat gun and warmed up the ends and straightened them best I could. I was going to buy new ones but that's another $240 plus over size shipping charges.

    I have a 2g spring kit coming from Keith at Custom Works which is supposed to be here Friday. It comes with new coils for the front compatible with a LS, new leaf springs for the rear, delrin upper bushings, new HD shackle plates, new u bolts, and a piece to eliminate the rubber pad these used under the rear axle to leaf spring. I also set my intake on to see how it looks with color on it.

    I guess this isn't going as bad as I think. I haven't had the car quite a year yet and have made pretty good progress. It took me 10 years to get my Longhorn to a place it was considered a truck again.

    I need some input....

    Should I leave the valve covers bare aluminum, or paint them the color as the intake?

    Eventually I want to build some covers out of some BBC valve covers but I haven't reached that point yet. Haha
