    Thanks Richard for all your input. Got a decent bit of progress done this weekend. Thinking I'm gonna need a new driver fender mine is pretty rotten.

    Umm I wouldn't say it is easy. But I have to tear this one down anyways so swapping the housing and required items if bought new from GM cost around 450-550 ish putting me at 650-750 for a stronger fbody t56

    Another update with a few more pictures. Sorry for the terrible pics my shop still doesn't have power....hopefully getting that fixed by the end of the month. Got the 5.3 and tremec t56. Also got the hood and hatch off and more of the interior pannels out. Most are in pretty decent shape. Gonna get new door skins and lower rear quarters made at a local shop. Mine had bad water damage. But I still have most of them for a decent template.

    Update. This weekend I am picking up a t56 transmission out of an 05 Vette for 200 bucks. It needs 3rd fixed. I couldn't pass on the deal. And I'm picking up a gen 3 5.3 long lock for the rebuild for 300bucks. 500 for drivetrain is pretty good deal imo. Anyone rebuilt the t56 themselves?

    No real updates today. It has been extremely cold for this time of year here in South Carolina, but I plan on getting some work done Friday before work.and maybe a few more pictures. This weekend I hope to go pick up the gen3 5.3 long lock to start disassembly and cleaning.
  11. So over the weekend I finally found a decent 260z to start my build I've been wanting to do since about 2008. Like most z cars it has it's rust and it needs alot of stuff. But I was kind of looking for one with those needs. I don't have a ton of pics yet but I have started a little of the teardown. The second pic of it is after I got it home and into her new home.
