    I currently am building a 1hz 47 in a stretched 80 frame and this is the engine I eventually want to end up with. Great plan and execution mate, keep it up.

    Not much going on, 120 degrees heat definitely makes it hard to get motivated

    Anybody used a mobile sandblaster? Guy claims he can come to my house and use a water type product and remove paint plus rust. I am skeptical and not sure how cool the HOA will be with 1972 paint and crud being blasted in my driveway

    And wife just bought a 2017 200, already planning some cool mods 4 that. She said I am taking to long with the project. Pick it up first week in July. Not sure who is more excited

    If you're not close friends with the person who is head of the HOA for your neighborhood I'd pass.

    You can borrow my trailer if you need to take it somewhere. I can bring it to you or you know where it is if I am not around.

    I agree, but am hearing that the water and soda mixture is fairly clean, was hoping that someone who has used one of these before can comment

    First attempt at body work, I figured under the seat would be a good place to start
