I have only posted a few times, So I guess I will let you all know what I am working on my black with gold stripes aero coupe. I finally got my qa1 suspension delivered and working on installing front and rear coil overs, tubular upper and lower control arms, upper/lower trailing arms attached to Moser 12bolt 3.73 reared with wilwood 4 piston disc brakes. Once I get all that installed I have to find a above average shop to install an ls3/6l80 combo into my SS. I have the engine, transmission, aeromotive fuel tank, proform radiator, and dakota digital gage cluster already to be installed. It's an ambitious list to be tackled so any local shops in east TN that anyone knows of let me know.

Sounds like some good plans. Im from Friendsville in Blount County. Ive came to the cars and coffee 3 or 4 times in Lenior City this year. Ive seen quite a bit of work from atomic speed shop in oak ridge and been to a cruise in there. Seems like they do good work. They have cruise ins there all the time. Really nice facilities.

Thanks, merky45. I was trying to post a picture earlier in the thread but couldn't figure out how so I tried again and figured it out. Then It was to late to edit my previous post.

If I would have enough posts I would post mine . It looks as good as yours only black with gold stripes and camel interior. Today just finished with front suspension, ready to put in Moser rearend and QA1 coil over suspension. Then bleed brakes and get alignment. Moser rear is 3.73 33 spline Tru trac.

Yes. The picture posting is tricky. I waited til I got 31 post and tried to post. I did not have any luck with the members host. All of my pictures are to big and would not post them. I use imgur. Copy the url and post it in my reply. Can't wait to see it. Sounds like a nice car.

All the suspension is in. Got driveshaft u joint switched out to 3r/ 1350 u joint. When engine trans swap occurs I'll have a different driveshaft made, moser rearend has 1350 yoke. Took car out today to break in Moser rearend gears and also check/run in the brakes, everything seems fine. Alignment will be next but is drivable for now, no long trips or road races. Also gave her a bath,she got dusty from sitting almost 5 months.

Alignment done. Car is ready for the fall festival Saturday, calling for a little rain, but still planning on going. Just have to clean up afterward.

Looks great! Helping my dad rebuild his from the ground up. We assembled the UMI suspension on the frame this past weekend. New upper and lower front control arms, sway bar, Viking coil overs, and 6 piston Wilwood brakes. The rear was a new Quick Performance Ford 9 inch, upper and lower control arms, sway bar, Viking coil overs, and 4 piston Wilwoods. Next up is the LT1 and 8L90e from a 2018 Camaro. Lots of work to do but really looking forward to it!

Just an update, almost had an awesome s*** moment today. I took my car out for a spin and heard something hit the undercarriage and front brake started making noise got back to house and found a caliper mounting bolt missing. No other damage found. Ordered bolt set today. Just a reminder use lock tight on the bolts and check that they are tight/torqued properly. The brakes are wilwood 4 piston 12 inch dynalites. This is what I get for getting In a hurry after waiting 4-5 months on suspension parts. Giving everyone my advice take your time and double check everything.
