04-12-2010 11:43 PM DSE Front End steps 1-3
Today I chopped off the old suspension bracketry on my subframe in preparation for the DSE (Detroit Speed & Engineering) Stage 3 Front End kit.

I performed steps 1-3 according to the instructions which included cutting the brackets and opening the holes in the frame to accommodate the coil over shocks.

More cutting still to come...

04-10-2010 11:27 PM went to the strippers
As I have learned- my firebird had spent some time back east before I owned it- hence the need to be chemically stripped.

So I rounded up the best replacement sheet metal I could find along with the rusty body and took it over to one of the only two local chemical strippers I'm aware of in the LA area.

The parts came out great, but the body needs another round in the tank. I brought it home yesterday, but found more caked on rust, so back it went. Hopefully I'll get it back next Friday.

I started to spray etching primer on the parts today and will continue tomorrow..

Just a few more teardown pics. Same car, less parts attached. My neighbor Brett helped build the dolly for me. It's awesome!

In other news is I picked up a second parts car today. It has a clean subframe, and a few other parts. I'll be pirating those and then selling off the rest.
