Edit: unfortunately I can't get the t56 for my build. So I will be installing a 4l80e. for now the I will remove the clutch pedal. and maybe one day I will do the manual conversion.
-Brake lines (done)
-Fuel System (done)
-chassis harness (done)
So here is some of the things that I will be doing to the car.
-LQ4 swap with the EFI system (I was going to run a carb but I changed my mind).
- 4l80e conversion
-Painless chassis wiring harness
-and some other things that you will see during the progress of the build
Here is the car when I first bought it.
Painted the some of the trim black.
Removing the vinyl top.
Used brake clean and WD-40 and scratched the glue with a penny xD. took me two day maybe a total of 13 hours.
Took every thing out. I will be getting a new black carpet when its time to work on the interior
Bye bye wiring and AC.
Engine and trans out.
Going to the junkyard to sell everything I took out from the car that was not going to be used. before I took the engine to the junkyard I took off the heads just to see If I was right about the head gasket. And I think they put the wrong gasket because it was blocking some passages for the water I wish I took a pic to show it here.
Cleaned it as much as I can with a drill and a wire brush wheel.
Painted it black with some shitty paint.
Used undercoating to paint the rear end. I will paint the rest of the under side of the car when it runs so I can take it to some place with a lift.
The shitty paint. (you will understand why it's shitty in a sec xD)
Bought me an 80-85 bumper with the grill and a broken headlight bezel.
Got this cool Wilwood pedal assembley with dual brake master cylinders part no. (340-11295) and a clutch pedal and a firewall mount part number (250-13167).this part stressed me alot just because a cut in a firewall was needed to be made to mount this bracket. I have ever cut or welded any metal before I took it to some place that does that.
I skipped my classes just to witness my caprice being chopped and feel the pain xD. It took one whole day and I didn't like the welding they did please tell me what you think guys. I might redo the whole thing when after I learn to weld.
