Default LS 3 build

Love the thread on your car, pretty much want to do same driveline in my 54 Sedan Delivery. Owned it over 40 yrs.still has the 401 Nailhead/400 THM that I installed around '78. I have a Heidt's MII set up, plan on Viking coilovers. I have installed 2 dr sedan doors (7" longer) and moved the B pillar back in the body, it really does wonders for the proportions, not to mention vision, ingress and egress. The slip yoke on the driveshaft is a good cure to the lack of one on the trans.If I could get some darned projects done for others, I could get going on mine! Anyway, just wanted to say nice job...that LS3 should make the old Stovebolt scoot, as well as be super reliable.

Today I finished welding a patch in the dash to smooth it out.

This week iv'e been working on finishing the rear arm rests and panel under the seat. The rear seat back folds forward , ended up being flat with the top of the arm rest, which worked out nice. Iv'e desided to go with JL Audio for speakers C3 6.5, 4 speakers, 2 in the kick panels, 2 in rear side panel under side windows. Right now it's Snowing like crazy---- forecast tonight -14 degrees , -34 for tomorrow night----- thanks to a good Modine heater the shop will stay nice and warm. This it kinda like winter is in Montana

Hi ltmontana,
Great project you’ve get there! And great fab skills!
I but a 5.3 and twin turbos in my ‘47 Sedan Delivery. I’ve been very pleased with it. You’ll Love that ls3!
Here’s a pic of mine, I had a build thread “Project Sudden Delivery” on here but I’m not sure if it still works now that photobucket wants $$$ for hosting.

Great looking ride. These cars are a lot of work to do but in the end well worth the work. You are right about the Photo Bucket thing , this has ruined a lot of great info that has been posted all over the internet .

There are fixes online for Photo bucket if you are using fire fox. I got it and I can see pictures on my build and they are on Photo bucket. They also have it for others.

Ltmontana, I’m just South if you in Sheridan, Wyoming. Maybe we’ll be able to meet up at a car show sometime in the future! I’ve been wanting to go to the red lodge one, or burn the point in Billings. But mostly stick to Wy and SD shows.

A few pix of the start of fabing kick panel speakers, one more project to work on. The weather will need to warm up a little so these can be covered with fabric and fiber glassed.

Finished fabing both kick panel speaker boxes, will need to warm up a bit before these can be fiber glassed, planing on covering the gas pedal ---- drive by wire pedal is rather ugly.

Next project is to flip the ft bumper up side down and move it aft so it lines up with the lower grill bar. Will need to be cut in several places to fit the right contour of the grill. Also removed the lower grill teeth under parking lights for a cleaner looking grill

Moving the bumper back will make the grill-bumper look a lot nicer, Thinking about frenching the head lights, not quite sure.. Had to cut and re fab all the bumper brackets, cut the bumper in 8 plus places to get it to fit.
