Got more done. I finished my crossmember and plated the inside of the frame abit. I may need to do a little more plating when I build my trans crossmember but we'll see.
I still have to work on the rear of the frame and I basically have that sorted out already but I need to start buying parts again I'm basically at the point now where I can start mocking up my rear diff and putting the motor and trans in (picking up a trans on Thursday) I'm going with a th350

So I'm waiting on a few parts. Bushings to build my motor mounts and a trans bushing. I picked up a shorter 8.8 out of a ranger and a turbo 400 with a fixed yoke. I'm ordering 1.25 hiems for my lower control arm and 7/8 hiem for the upper. I'm waiting to build my frame until this axle is in place. I've chosen to go with 35's and I'm debating on building cantilever suspension in the rear. Up in the air at this moment.

So I got good news the body is back on! Bolted down partly and currently building my engine mounts and ordered bushings off summit. I've been taking it slow, I did order the ruffstuff 1.25 hiems for the rear control arms but not I need to order the 7/8 hiems for my rear UCA and an oil pan for the LS. This week I'm going to pick up some steel to build my transmission crossmember but I'm going to wait till I have a few more things before I start up again.

Yea I don't see it coming off again, I have to build the rear of the frame and I chose to do it with the body on instead for me personally it will be easier. I can also have to make the crossmember with the car on to make sure that the trans won't be hitting the body. I got a quote from a CBC shop to mill my rotors was $500 dollars so that isn't something I'm willing to do.

So it's been pretty slow, I did how ever purchase tires for the car and started my crossmember. I'm having trouble centring the engine and trying to get my hub/brake situation together...but here are a few photos that I've taken.
