Parts I ordered are beginning to arrive. I'm not happy with the tires, but they'll do. I've decided on a 4WD S-10 rear axle housing, the 4-lug Mustang shafts, and redrill the '84 Trans Am rotors. Not the least possible unsprung weight, but the best parts for me.
Also gotta get a PCM and send it to Ryan Gick at gmtuners.com, he's been the best results at the best price on other projects.
Really not liking these exhaust manifolds, half hoping they won't fit the car.
Pics once most of the parts are here and the work gets underway.
Can't understand why it costs so much for shipping a simple airdam. It's not even 6' x 1' x 1', and not even 10 pounds with the box. I'm not paying $134 for shipping, I'll build my own instead.
My appreciation to those who've taken interest.

Snafu with the pilot bushing, otherwise waiting for parts to arrive.

I'm trying to show progress, triumphs and failures in how I do things, like my own big brakes, my own Watt's link, and fitting this engine, then the show stopping result. So now 3 good "before" pics, then 2 progress pics, including my first test-fit of the '94 Camaro gauge cluster.







The car is about to be painted blue, and there's been a snafu with some bolts.

Looking good. Are you painting it? What color blue? Is the engine getting any work done to it before going in?

The engine is staying stock for now, just a tune up and an oil change. It'll be a darker blue, not metallic nor pearlescent. The interior will end up mostly medium grey.
