  1. I had the spacers for the back wheels bored out on a lathe to fit on the centering hub on the rear end. Fits great! Took the shop 30 minutes! 100mm diameter by 5mm deep. Had to clean up the hub with a wire wheel to get it to fit on so it is a good tight fit.
  2. Lots of progress since this last post. Air suspension is functional. Wiring of the car is 95% done. New trans tunnel fabricated. Next big step will be finishing the engine hookups for coolant, fuel, etc and doing a test fire! https://youtu.be/EuLSPviB4mAwe
  3. Worked on the transmission change out today. Pulled off the stock 545RFE trans and started installing the adapter I bought to hook up to the 4L80E. It is a nice kit and everything is working pretty well. Should get it buttoned up tomorrow. I also installed the new painless wiring harness and terminated the easy stuff like the rear lights and head light area. I am de sting taking off the dash to make the switch hook up easier but am not sure. I am sure that I wish my shop was heated, it is -15c here now and it is tough on the fingers trying to do wiring.
  4. Started my week off by installing my new throttle body. I needed something cable actuated and with a throttle position sensor and a idle air control motor so I ended up with a LS engine based Edelbrock 90mm one. I picked up a adapter but it didn’t work since the intake had centering pins which the adapter didn’t, and the bottom of the adapter and throttle body both hit the intake and needed to be filed down 1/8” or so. Fits perfect now and plugs into the Holley harness.
  5. Here are the rest of the pictures. Bonus picture of me at work setting our top module in a 300’ tall stack.
  6. A bit of progress, i cleaned the interior floor and primed it to be ready for routing wiring and the air lines. Mounted the compressor and air tank. Got some new steelies and will be mounting the old Buick center caps to them. Scored some freebies from work including some shelves and an old broken drill press. Changed out the motor and cleaned it up and oiled it and it works great.
  7. Had lots of fun today. Pulled the wiring harness off the engine and am sending it and the ECU to Swap Specialties for them to build me a new one and reprogram ECU to run engine/trans and omit the need for all the extra stuff like EVAP, catalytic converter, wheel speed sensors, etc. Also so did something I was worried about which was changing the transmission over from the 4wd housing to the extension housing and shaft for the 2wd. It all came apart and back together great. Just need to clean and paint the rest of engine and trans to match. Also will need to rework the trans mount
  8. Glad you are back running. Quite a journey to get it back together.
  9. Christmas (and snow) came early this year. My delivery from speedway made it here. It included the compressor, valves and control system for the air ride system. Also had the panhard bar I needed to finish the rear end. I celebrated by pulling the engine and trans out to pull off the wiring harness and also change out the output housing to the 2wd version for this trans.
  10. Put on the disc brake setup on the front drivers. Also finished the back lower plates. Hardware and fittings were a struggle but all together now.
  11. Drilled a big center hole to bolt to the stock spring mount and then the mount/airline holes for the top of the airbag. Next job is the lower bag mount plate. Looking at the picture I will need to touch up the plasma cut edges a bit more....
  12. Started the rear with some 6” std wall pipe and cut it into a 5” piece. Then I chopped it into six pieces and made the spacer for the airbag that will still give me access into the middle to put fasteners into the bag and to hold it up into the frame. Used some 1/4” plate for the top and bottom plates.
  13. I am shipping stuff that way for work every other month or so and I might be able to get it headed that way for you. Cross border paperwork might be my only issue.
  14. I now have 1 corner on air ride. Just need the compressor plumbed to it. I am happy with how it all fits and works. I will double check for clearance in the spring pocket and trim as needed to ensure it clears easily when fully compressed.
  15. I agree after doing some research. I was worried about having a cast part being loaded like that but they will be fine being forged. Appreciate the feedback.
