Looks great! Very well thought-out build. Nice job.

How much to build a subframe like that for me?

Small update,

I made an adjustable panhard bar and pressed in some new bushings. I also made some rear coilovers so besides plumbing the brakes the suspension is pretty much done. I also mounted my kirkey and the shifter is in and working. I have just been working on getting all the electrical working and thinning out all the crap I'm not going to use. The good new is that the power windows and locks work! I also reworked the heater box so it's pretty much is just a defroster now. I just couldnt bear to put all that ductwork and vacuum mess back in and since it's not going to be my daily I dont need heat coming at me in five directions. I'm going to wire up the megasquirt, mount the battery and finish all that time consuming crap. I can't wait until it's time to shred it and make it all pretty!

Oh and I came up on a major score, free wheels!!! I work next to a wheel shop in the bay area and this guy got new wheels for his evo and just left his 17x9 rotas there with pretty new 255 dunlops. One wheel was broken(reason for getting new ones) but I can afford one wheel....

I honestly don't know what look I like better though, what do you guys think?

55superbeetle 12-30-2010 01:53 AM

The dude I bought the transmission of off threw the shifter in on the deal. I agree with you though if I had to buy one.

RvolvoR 12-30-2010 02:00 AM

yeah, i just cant stand that huge box...lol

RvolvoR 12-30-2010 02:01 AM

....did you happen to get the trans from some farmers by any chance?

55superbeetle 12-30-2010 02:04 AM

I dont know what the guy did for a living but he lived in yuba city, certainly could have been a farmer.

morganpartee 12-30-2010 02:20 AM

I like the car, and also the flamed drill press. Vintage Delta? Looks like a beast.

I didn't know you were at SVS. My F-I-L has been bringing his cars there since the shop opened. Back when I first got my 244, we brought it all the way there from NV to get some crazy problems figured out. They've always done a great job.
