04-19-2010 12:50 AM the body is back
This Friday I brought the car body back home from the strippers. I was a bit disappointed that I could still see rust on the car despite 2 dippings. I was expecting the body to be void of all rust- like all the sheet metal seemed to be. Apparently, my car was really, really rusty. They did offer me to bring the car back for one more dipping after removing some of the rusted panels.

Attached are some pics from the weekend. We tested out my neighbor's new plasma cutter by chopping out the rear wheel wells. I spent Saturday cleaning up those cuts/ drilling out the factory spot welds. I also had time to remove the top dash panel. I still have to cut out the inner cowl panel.

I also installed the subframe. I need to align it so we can start measuring and create the subframe connectors, as well as the inner tubs.

04-13-2010 11:39 PM DSE Front End steps 4-5
I cut the slots out on the subframe for the DSE suspension parts. This took longer than lopping off the original brackets.

The black bracketry is the included jig they provide. This holds the parts in place to tack weld

Now I need to rely on my neighbor to weld it up. Hopefully later this week...

04-13-2010 12:43 AM 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...
