06/14/15 Project LS-56 Progress

Made a little more progress on Sunday, got the body all bolted down and shimmed, got the doors on and aligned, got the instruments all installed, installed some of the bumpers then the side flags and fuel injection letters.

Next I need to install the new wiper system, I have not been looking forward to that.

 Installed the new instruments.

Project LS-56 Body Drop 1st Try

This was our first attempt at mounting the body. Who knew (not me at least) that the passenger side head of an LS engine sits further towards the back of the car then the drivers side. When we put the body on the chassis the passenger head was rubbing the firewall thus the new pocket and a few days lost on the build. At least it took space away from the passenger side and not the drivers side.

 

OK, after a bit of fabrication and finishing the firewall pocket is complete and all painted. Now the body is ready for it’s final mounting (At least I hope it is final).

Project LS-56 Gets some paint

We are finally at the point where we added some color to project LS-56.
