This weekend I made some panels for the rear seat delete. I used sheet metal to also act as a rear firewall and covered it with vinyl. I also started on a panel to close the gap between my radiator and core support to help force the air through the radiator.

Time sure does fly by. Had a last minute trip to China (for work), and a bunch of other things come up. Not much progress on the 'bird. I was able to muster up getting my exhaust welding finished, painted and hung back under the car, as well as I made some front license plate brackets. Progress is progress....

No exhaust update this weekend, I wasn't able to get the 309L welding wire I need for mixing SS and mild steel. So it's on order and I assembled my taillights. My electronics engineer buddy was building a set for me, but got lazy and ended up ordering a "Digi Tails" kit for me instead.

I had some time and worked on mocking up my exhaust. With exception of my cut outs (these will locate at the first bend of the exhaust for a "Straight through" fit), I have it roughed out now, and next weekend will hopefully finish it up, paint it and loosely install it. I'm so glad I made those exhaust cut outs in my floor. they provided enough room for me to get the exhaust up and out of the way. I won't torque it down until after the drive shaft is in, and I have my drive shaft hoop built.

10-26-2014 05:29 PM show n tell at work
At my work they are showcasing projects of employees who build/ make things this week, and I have participated by showing the build process of my Firebird. I've made 6 or so presentation boards with highlights of my project over the past few years, and I was asked to bring the car in to supplement the presentation. To do this I needed to borrow some wheels and figure a way to get the car and back. I was fortunate to receive help from my neighbor on both tasks. Thanks, Brett!! We put the car on wheels on Sat, and it sat like, well, like a Mustang! ha ha So we quickly lowered it and got it to a more respectable stance. The spacing/ offset is still narrow for my car, and measuring this will help me dial in the rim sizes I will ultimately need to buy. I also need to get new springs for my shocks, as the ones that came in the DSE kit won't work for the stance I want.

It will be unveiled on Tuesday. I can't wait!
