I'll say it. "I am becoming quite jealous of your collection." There, I said it, now we can move on.

This is great motivation to make my 64 Impala convertible absolutely bat S**t crazy so that I have a chance of hanging with you. :lol:

Well Played Greg, Well Played!

P.S. What engine is going in this? (Fingers crossed for Saab Sonnet V-4)...

Sr20det would amazing! But its probably going to stay pretty stock engine-wise till the conquest is done. But then all bets are off. Then it will probably turn into a nice handling quick ka24 powered turbo project. I guess the ka turbos make a ton of torque so that could be fun

Well here is what I am going to go for, this should be around a 5/6 drop with just the stock steelies painted and I think I am going to just paint on whitewalls seeing that real ones are WAY to expensive.

So progress on the hardbody, relocated the stock front shock mount 3.5" higher that stock because the shockes were bottomed out, but I got to mod one side because its getting a little hooked up on the new mount, no biggy but I just ran out of light/time. But the HB should have a 6/6 drop soon enough after I mod the rear spring hangers.

Ugh...

I really should have just faced the facts and put this in the project section...

oh probably about 4ish in the front and 4 in the rear as of right now, I would like to get the back a inch of two lower, its sitting with a little rake right now. Not digging it. But maybe tomorrow. Plus then tomorrow I should be able to drop the front a little bit lower because I am getting a set of 4x4 front fenders, and I am going to bash in the inner fender too.

nice! I'm getting antsy and wanting to do a body drop on top of the suspension lowering, but then I'll need bags. Do you plan on bagging and 4linkin it?

I'm not sure if I would bag it, maybe, but probably not. But its tough to say really. I'm not really sure if I want a nice level statick drop or bags, I guess only time will tell

Well I got my new maf and slapped that little guy in. It runs worse... and here is what I have found out.

Anyone heard of a swirl valve? Well I guess its this valve on my intake mani that adds some air/fuel into the engine at idle and at low rpm while driving. And I guess mine is disconnected/solenoid is broken so thats my project for the day.

I think you are being punished for not working on the conquest.

just sayin...

Probably! haha, I actually made some progress on the quest the other day, made a new corner that was all rotted out, it came out pretty good, but I just want to get this damn thing running right!!! Oh well, all in time.
