Well I guess I'll start a thread that I can post the progress of my car . Most of you already know that I have a 2002 gt that I'm putting a 545 BBF stroker in it :twisted: Well right now I'm working on the engine bay . I got it down to bare metal where I'm going to be boxing it in and welding EVERY little hole . Tomarrow I'm going to start making a the fill peices out of sheet metal . Every place that there still is black is where I'm going to box in with sheet metal . Look for a ton more pictures as the build goes on :wink:

Man I love that car! Did you buy it new or was is a rolling chassis or wreck/stolen recovery?

Do you have anymore pics of the inside? Is it mini tubbed too?
I bought it off the show room foor it only has 8,000 miles on it . This is why my wife won't talk to me anymore :lol: The car isen't tubbed I was going to but I think I'll get it to hook with the new rear suspension and rear http://www.cachassisworks.com/site_images/84MX0-507_ProCO_rear_AT.jpg

I know exactly what your thinking. MY VOTE. Trade your rolling chassis for a 99+ rolling chassis. That would be cool.

Finshed welding the sheet metal now I just have another 40 hours of body work :lol:

I don't envy you ONE BIT :lol: I hate body work! When I molded the scoop into my hood, my hands itched for a week!
I have week of cleaning all the damn dust out of the garage :( I just don't see how people can do body work for a living !

Well guys I got the engine bay smoothed and welded up . I was a lot of work but well worth it , the engine bay looks SOOOO much better 8) I left it in primer until I get the motor plated setup then I'll take it all back apart and put some paint on it . The car also got a hole new suspension coil overs , a-arms , struts , cc plates . Here is a few pictures .
