Replaced steering shaft rubber donut. Replacement had different insert bushings so had to use stock bushings in new rubber.

Jeez, got to admire a guy who dives in the deep end.

What's the plan for the old Euro engine? Not to be ghoulish...

Decided to delete sun roof, cut out sun roof sheet metal and member UNEEKONE was kind enough to sell me a roof panel and non sunf roof headliner. I spoke with painter / body man to figure out how to weld the filler piece in. I ended up recessing the edges approx 1/16th " so he would have some flexibility making everything blend.

Was going to tig weld, but it wasn't practical, so used mig welder. Lots of tack welds. I will grind and blend the best I can and then leave the rest for the painter to deal with

I am not one that prolongs things nor has a clear direction.

The motor that came out of the 83 conversion build is not the Euro engine.
I will be selling off the the motor, trans and torque tube down the road.
I will be taking all the smog equipment off the motor to use on my Euro car.

Received some of the parts from Renegade for LS swap. Installed the fly wheel, pilot bearing, clutch, pressure plate and bell housing. Hoping to get motor mocked up this weekend.

Now the pressure is on.
I Have read your thread numerous times and just love the detail that went into your build. People can appreciate the quality of your build, but until they have actually invested the time, sweat, research and money into a build of your stature, it is very hard to comprehend.
My goal is to come up just short of your build

The only rust I have found on the car was in the battery box. I cut the bottom pan out and fab a new stronger one.

I'll always follow a clean build like this. The LS is a great motor- shame CA choked it down on you, but shouldn't matter that much. Beautiful!

Are the suspension parts media blasted or painted? They look great.
