07-05-2011 08:31 PM engine mount mock up 1
I set the engine back in and mocked up a little more accurate tube layout for the engine mounts, as well as roughed out my adaptor plates. I had bought some in a kit, but I'd like to take advantage of all the bolt holes on the block as I'm locating my engine farther back. I'll draw up a pattern in Illustrator and use it to trim out the plates to give them a little style. I have something in mind... I also bought some DOM tubing today and dropped it off at a local tube bending shop to have parts of it bent. I'll also need to purchase a tube cutting tool so I can make some clean cuts for welding.

Wow, time does fly. I'm still alive. I had a last minute trip to Hong Kong and China for work for 2 weeks (3 weekends, though), and now it's a month later. I was lucky to get 3 days this weekend to work on the car. I took it off the rotisserie and put it back on the body dolly.

A few more pics, and, as my luck would have it, I dropped my axle trying to move it and scratched the fresh paint. d'oh!

I also spent some time today painting the underside of the car as well as the axle. I had purchased the KBS 3 step kit. It had a degreaser, rust sealer and chassis paint.
