Excellent Build and fabrication
Glad I havent had to rip into mine as much as you have in fabricating a chassis, Im impressed by your tenacity and dedication.
I'd love to see more of this build, now that spring is starting to emerge.
Alright now it's been quite awhile since any updates. Whats going on with the build?
Checking in again on this great build, what's the latest ???
Hey! I'm not dead.
The tunnel frame is welded in and I have fitted an Acura wipermotor in preparation for reworking the rain tray and upper firewall. I have also gone a different direction on the front spindles...That's about as far as it went. I've been focused on building for other people but I might dig into the Z a bit more.
Sorry to bump an old thread. I bought this car from Snailed a while back and it's now going up for sale.
so now on to third owner this is what an unfinished project looks like.
1jz out and sold chevy big block getting mocked up ordering ifs suspension next
ifs all in grab some lug nuts today and if all goes well get some big block action if your wondering about transmission i will be using a new process nv3500 5 speed am going to get this build over to my page if i can figure that out lets get this old girl on the road.
Interesting engine choice. Not many people swap those in, given their size and weight. Is this going to be a drag car?
Looking forward to updates. If you want to make your own thread, at the top right of each sub forum is a black button that says "Start New Topic." Click on that and go from there.
Really great work!
The patch that you made for the battery area, was that shaped with just a hammer/dolly?
the big block was here and he had a there was a huge amount of room between the rails. and to my surprise i managed to get motor well behind the front crossmember of the ifs keeping the weight from swinging around past the front wheels.fits under hood for now havent mocked up a carb may go for injection need to put this away for a few months have a secondary project that needs love before snow flies. i have a fiberglass dash cover that came with this car that will not be used i would gladly trade it for a fuse panel ?? email me [email protected]
Suspension looks great. Not a fan of the engine choice. keep posting i hope it finally gets finished
