Wow man your shop looks way bigger than mine and its the same size. Now I really wish I would have gone steel all the way. We actually got a 4 post givin to us. And man it was like if it's free it's for me. But after getting it back to the shop I was amazed on how much room it took up over the 2 post. I ended up giving it to a good friend. Definitely getting another 2 post. And your right. We need to add on badly too. Don't seem to ever have enough room. Lol

Yes sir! So much I have to do it isn't even funny. I don't even know to know how much it will cost in the end.

was commissioned was do a steering shaft for an 80's gm truck to eliminate the rag joint. found a shaft that works perfect that isn't the ugly jeep shaft and viola, here it is. as you can see the truck shafts are on the left and they're a good bit longer than the f-body shafts i typically do which are on the right.



and installed


then monday a friend and fellow mullet militia member brought his 87 gta over for some sfc's









the red car i work on a lot is coming back over tomorrow. it's gonna get a 10 point cage and a rewire, among a few over things. always busy! lol

Matt, can you feel the difference in the way a 3rd gen drives after you put in the frame connectors? I had a 2nd gen, and it was really noticeable.

it's a huge difference. it's the number 1 mod i recommend to anyone who just bought a thirdgen. the number 2 mod is rear lca relocation brackets to fix the suspension geometry.

One of my friends did a build on a 3rd gen back in 2000. The car was a high mile survivor, but it was pretty nice.

When our tech brought it in to the shop, all the panels and doors needed adjusted and it looked ragged out. She put it on our digital frame machine, and even though it had never been wrecked, it was pretty far out of spec..

She pulled it back into perfect specs and then welded the frame connectors in while it was on the machine. When she put it back on the ground, all the panels lined up and it looked amazing.

Matt putting in work!

Amazing how many 82-2002 F car guys build a car and don't have the relocation brackets.

Supposed to be 70 here today, I really hope to "test" the new trans some on a back road or three

Just my few drives around the block don't tell me what I'm looking for...

Ah, yes. Forgot about that. I'm just trying to pay off my house and what couple small other insignificant loans I have. Don't think I have much left for credit card debt either.

Well....feels damn good....until you throw a belt at 7000+ and you over heat puking anti-freeze everywhere.

Anywho, gotta fix the tossing of my belt.

500rpm drops on the shift best I could tell by eye....data logger is only hooked up to AFR gauge for now.

Factory or manual tensioner? I run a Katech manual on the Camaro and a Speed Inc manual on the TA. 7k+ shifts without issues.

Hey Steve, up and running. Same motor that was FI and it's amazing how much smoother it is now with a carb. Powerglide also is in. Just small things now but it is running

Tensioner is new and manual ICT part.
I think I found an issue... alt was aligned with crank, tensioner aligned with crank...but tensioner wasn't inline with the alt. Got it inline within .100 I guess....needs another "test"
