    That sucks about finding more rust! But on the bright side, you have one nice transmission!

    Slow but sure!

    Yeah, it's how it goes. I have the misfortune of only finding rusty cars. My 82 Trans Am is pretty clean though.

    Now for something totally different......No progress of the Z28. I'm taking a break because I'm tired of messing with metal work so I switched gears back to my 82 Trans Am and a side paint project for my oldest son.

    I was originally going to flip the TA. It had a blown engine and crappy TH200 so I dropped in another motor and TH350. I was close to having it running when I bought the Z28. I have too much money in it now to make anything from selling it, so I decided to get it running so I have a street toy again.

    Nothing special.
    355, 215 Dart Iron Eagles and a new hydraulic .488 Comp cam. I have a Holley 750 that needs a rebuild that will be going on this engine once the cam is broke in.

    I also found a Posi disc brake Borg Warner 9 bolt rear end with a 3.27 gear that I swapped for the original 10 bolt. It has all new suspension back there as well.

    Moving on to my Son's car. He bought a 2005 Impreza RS a few months ago and wanted a WRX hood. He bought a brand new one with a carbon fiber scoop, so I primed and painted it. Still need to cut and buff the clear.

    Once I get the Trans Am running, I'll jump back on the Z.

    Thanks! One of these years I'll finish something....( The wife is after me ;) ). I'm gonna try to be there with the Trans Am. It looks good in pics, but needs paint. At least it's not rusty!

    Regardless if I have something to bring down there, I'm hoping to see yours!
