The car is finally home.
well the car is finally home now.
I got the radiator yesterday so after gettting the body off the car and on its side I can try and figure out the best way to mount it. I think where it is at will be good but there is no way a fan is going to fit on the back of it so I will have to make an air box and have the fan on the other side of the crossmember probably. at least that way I can put 2 or 3 fans in it instead of one.
I decided to leave the car outside under a carport to work on it, that gives me a lot more room and the cold weather is all but over so it might be faster to get it back together outside. First thing I need to do is to get the suspension all finished up and completed. after that I can remount the body on it and maybe bolt the floor pan under it. I am debating on leaving the floor pan off until the wiring is finished to make it a lot easier to get under the dash but I have not decided on that part yet. I am replacing the rear ball joints and cleaning and repacking the bearings. I can fit the back brake calipers from the Eldorado onto the rear end of this car so I will even have a parking brake setup that works. The front suspension is good the way it is the only thing needing changed is the springs have to be cut off a lot to lower the car down to the ground. The way it is the front end probably has around 9-10 inches of ground clearance.
