Only been able to work on it a little this week but on my way to some modifications I had planned prior to powder coating. Donor had the Hahn cold air intake so I cut it and rewelded including add in a frame tab.

Added mounting tabs for larger intercooler and 401FC pump.

Here it is w/intercooler and pump in place. Not pictured but it does clear the fuel tank and PDC.

Finished making my frame modifications and powercoater is ready for me to drop off in the morning. Going to be a long two weeks waiting. Never thought o would stress so much picking a color. Really liked the look of the shocker yellow but could not duplicate the color of the nearest goblin.

I really did not have a problem with corrosion during teardown or with components suffering oxidation cancer with my donor I picked up in Alabama. Interior was a different story as a mixture of soda, coffee, and I assume some form of hardwood floor sealer covered the floor areas. Steering shaft was seized to the point that I almost ended up destroying it to break it free. Just FYI if you drill out the set crimp to separate the halves the splines only allow assembly to go back together in the correct phase. At least the case with my 09 sedan donor.

Worked on the exhaust while I wait for the frame to get back from the power coater. Uses the factory exhaust seal and I added a interior baffle that is not pictured. I will paint it black with exhaust paint and wrap in titanium wrap.

Exhaust finished and starting rewrap of engine harness. Hoping frame is done power coating by weeks end.

Bummer is the swimming pool I ordered in mid May is being delivered next week. I'm going to have to get it assembled before the weather turns to make sure everything is accounted for or risk being out next spring.

OK finally received frame and components back from powder coat late Friday. Didn't get much time today but did get hoses pulled and floor pan installed. Installed valve cover and started finalizing engine harness rewrap. Used spark plug boot insulators for heat protection but not really excited about the boot insulator look.

Managed to get 8 uninterrupted hour in on the car today. Amazing what you van get accomplished when you actually get time left alone to work. Excuse the mess I just called it a night without cleaning up. Hope I didn't get over zealous and install something I'll have to remove later.

You'll want to get your coolant lines into your tunnel now, preferably under your harness, before it gets tougher.

Does the clutch master cylinder need to be clocked (counter clockwise) to have the hose inlet pointed in more toward the middle of the car? Seems it would interfere with the hood being angled off toward the next lane. :D

Lol I had to do a double take at the pic and then the car. I guess I snapped the pic prior to completely installing the clutch cyl, good catch.

Decided to go ahead and replace the front hubs, thought I had purchased the ones with enough clearance but the ABS cap just barely stuck out too far. For my hubs I found the doorman 555-065 freeze plug fit perfectly pressing it in backwards with a little sealer.

Going to have to cut a big hole in the hood if you are keeping the brake reservoir in the stock location.....
