Wow, Jeff. That spring is SCARY. I HATE HATE HATE messing with coil springs.
As for the 93 Sonoma, someone on one of the Facebook S10 pages I follow just bought that. It's EXTREMELY drool worthy.

Got garage time this weekend. Filled in all unused holes in the firewall and crossmember, then installed the clutch/brake pedal combo. Engine placement set, headers really took the lead and told me where to place it, should have figured that out a long time ago.. Headers in and out around 10 times, tried every engine mount combo I could, engine and trans in and out about 4 times on Sat. Happy with the placement, engine and headers have plenty of clearance, had to BFH massage the firewall and trans tunnel a little.

Man pedals



Filled holes



All headers installed, had to remember to put the jackstands under the a-arms otherwise the frame droop would have shot me in the foot..



Cooking poly soon, primary wraps around lower a-arm bushing.. not too excited about it.



My welding buddy stopped by yesterday to see what I was up to. I was trying to figure out how I was going to mount my clutch master cylinder. The bracket (made for f-body clutch master) I bought was far from working. Bounced a couple ideas, he came back with some others, ended up finding a piece of flat 1/4" steel in his scrap that was the perfect size and decided to make the plate to fit the Tilton master cylinder. He had an oxy/acetylene setup at his house so we spent a percentage of the day traveling. I at first wanted the hole in the plate under the booster so that it would go through the steering column plate and not mess w/ the firewall. That idea was a complete bust, ended up welding the hole back up in the plate and moving it so the cylinder was lined up w/ the side of the clutch pedal arm. I greatly appreciate his patience and determination!

Starting of the custom vs the universal that was not made for my car



My buddy doing work





And the end result. I cleaned up the edges a little more after this pic and hosed it down w/ gloss black. She ain't pretty, but she will get the job done.





Clutch rod lines up w/ side of arm. Have to get a turnbuckle so I can dial in the pedal placement.

Haven't got much garage time as of late. Just been cleaning and painting with the time at hand.

Got a really crap coat on the firewall, drilled new motor mount holes, and cleaned all the wrinkled paint from the leaking brake fluid off the frame. Finally pulled the wheel wells in from the backyard, cleaned them up and did a crap job of brushing on some semi gloss.

This was after wire brush, roloc, da sander, and washing them with eagle one wheel/tire cleaner.



Sprayed the rusty spot under the battery tray with rust inhibitor, dried this afternoon, then literally slapped paint on before a softball game. You can see how much dirt/rust/paint came off them under the saw horse, the rest was on me. This was just the top, I'm leaving the under coat on the bottom.

Squeaked in 2 hrs last night, pulled as much peal n seal off that I could, then wire brushed the pass floorboard to see what I was dealing with



Got out the power tools and went to town on it. Yabba Dabba Doo! I'm cutting out one section at a time and replacing it. Trying to keep the factory seams intact so when I do get around to putting in floorpans I can do it "properly". Have another spot on the floor in front of the seam, then up on the toe panel where the body mount covers. Must have had a hell of a windshield leak to take out the floor and dashboard like this.



The Malibu Constellation



Unfortunately don't have the funds for real floorpans, so I'm making use of what I have to get rid of the rot and seal it up.

So my car has been sitting outside in driveway for at least a month, since ive had S10 home and messing with it.

We have had 3 days of rain, this week. Got in it last night and jeezus the floor doesn't quite have a puddles. But you can run a finger over the carpet and smoosh water. Im not thrilled to say the least.

I know for sure the vent windows leak bad when ive ran it through car wash. I really hope that's where its coming from. Otherwise I think ill jerk the seat/carpet out and dust in some baby powder in it before it rains to try to track it.

Definitely pull the carpet so it will dry quicker. This isn't fun, just glad I'm pushing myself to do it before engine/exhaust/fuel/wiring/etc are in the way.

Only thing that got done on the car was welding in the one patch Friday night. I'm happy I did this before everything gets in the way, going to try and get the other large rust holes taken care of.

Rest of the time was spent on my welding buddy's daughter's 4runner. Have to change the power steering hose on a co-worker's car, then hopefully back to the chevelle.
