Out of funds for the time being, using what I got to keep momentum. At some point on down the road I'll put floor pans in, just not in the cards at this point.

Building cars is definitely tough on wallet.


I really been trying to just keep my junk maintained and running vs new shiney parts. That's tough enough.

Definitely, I'm still in shock over the cost of all the arbitrary items needed and how fast it all adds up.

Just the floor pans, driver's side from under the pedals to the rear foot section is $105, pass same price, rear seat area is $85/side, toe panel board (firewall to footwell transition) is $60/side, then you have to buy plugs to fit the new sheetmetal. That's $500 not including seam sealer, shipping, cutting/grinding discs, and time. Patching it sucks but you won't be able to tell once the carpet goes down. I was worried about replacing the formed/dolly'd/reinforced floor pans w/ flat sheetmetal, but it's going to be a N.F.G. hotrod in the end.

Still needs:
new seal for diff yoke, seal isn't matching s10 yoke, leaking on garage floor
shortening of driveshaft / new u-joints
exhaust items to put summit racing "kit" together
spark plugs, possibly plug wires
radiator/heater hoses
heater core
seal for heater box to firewall
clutch line
clutch remote bleeder
brake master cylinder
brake hard line to re-route to clear headers/replace P.O. jackassery
metric helicoil to fix 2 stripped bolt holes on craigslist t56 bellhousing
trailer wiring to run from dash to trunk to replace factory wasted harness
misc wiring items to wire up engine / integrated fuse panel?
some type of gauge cluster / possibly mechanical gauge pod to mount under dash for engine vitals
clutch/brake pedal rebound bumpers
windshield install
front end alignment after rebuild
power steering hoses (might can use s10 hoses)
dirty dingo ps pulley to clear power steering box

sheesus.. this is just off the top of my head to get it on the road. I need a drink.

Didn't get a lot done this weekend, taking on sidework to pump up the funds. Still burning in patch panels on the floor board. Pass side is done, have to get a mini belt sander to grind down the welds between the frame and body. Starting drivers side tonight. Seriously debating on doing overlap welds vs butt welds. Trying to trim the flat sheet to fit the floorboard is eating up a lot of time, plus trying to butt weld to thinned (rusted and sanded down) metal is aggravating to no end.

Only real update is finally found a 95 camaro V6 that someone was parting out. Real "interesting" guy but sold me the ps pump pulley for $10. Beats having to buy the dirty dingo pulley for $90.. This is so the pulley will clear the steering box when mounted.

Just want to say, this tool is the foshizzle. Got it yesterday to clean up some nasty weld boogers between the floor pan and frame rail, rarely can I say that the tool was a perfect fit and worked very well. I couldn't get anything I owned to knock the welds down, this little thing went right up and did the trick! I forgot to take pics afterwards, will try to update tonight after taking the girls out to trick or treat. Had 2 belt casualties, but they're simple to change out with little down time.



Here's one of the areas I couldn't get to, it's where the frame angles down from the a-arms to go under the body. The boogers are from torching through the thinned metal then trying to feed off the cherry to build the area back up. Complete hack job and time waste, but gotta do what ya gotta do.

I've had body guys tell me they swear by these to do spot welds vs traditional drill mounted cutters.
