Here's the last thread: http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=66564
This isn't as well documented as I meant it to be. In the hurry to wrap up the frame and get the body back on, the day I had to shoot pics, my digital camera battery was shot... so only what I have below. I wanted to get more shots of the custom rear bumper and some more detail shots, but you get the idea.
Here's the frame all plumbed up with the engine in, just waiting to be pushed out of the garage.
In the last thread there was some discussion of the factory tilt of the transmission, and with the Chevy 350/400 the transfer case now sits flatter than it used to. Here's how I fixed it, I cut out the tranny mount, lowered it so the front driveshaft output is at the stock height and rotated it the correct amount so that the tranny mount still bolts up flush. Here's a pic of it all painted and mounted up shot from behind.
Pushed the chassis out into the driveway, under the body, and lowered it back down with two (borrowed) engine hoists.
Quick shot of the engine bay...
And the result is it looks just like it did when I started!
Lots of things still to do. Wrap up all the plumbing with the Vintage Air airconditioning and the new radiator. Prep and paint the dash. Hippoliner the entire floor. Rewire. Etc. Etc. I'll be lucky if it's running by Christmas.
