So yesterday i decided to install my dougs header on the motor before i drop the body on the frame. The driver side went on fairly easy but the pass side gave me a hick up. It looked like it was hitting the frame slightly so i sliced off a small hump on top of the cross member. Second attempt still wasnt fittinguntill i took a closer look and realized it was hitting the motor mount not the frame. Sliced off the edges of the mount and walla fits like a glove. Stupid me i cut the frame for no reason. It was the size of a quarter and you wont se it anyway. So i got both header in and bolts snugged down thinking in done untill i attempt to put the motor mount bolts back in cause i lifted the motor for more room and realize i have to unbolt the header to put the bolts back in. So unbolt the headers slide in the mount bolts and put headers back on. Its always something that happens and its ussually my fault. After that was done my buddy wet sanded and polished the fire wall so i can marry the body and frame tonight. Fire wall came out beautifull. Very very happy with the color. Tonight after body is on ill start installing fuel systeme and decide were to run my lines and stuff.

Well i have some bad news to share. I was bolting the body to the frame tonight. I got all the bolts threaded so i was lifting the car to tighten all the bolts easyer and i must not of had it sitting on the lift properly and it fell off the lift and landed on it pass side taking out he pass quarter. No i didnot have insurance on it yet. I was going to do it right after joint it together. So now i need a pass side quarter for a lemans if anyone knows of one hiding some where. Ther is one on ebay in t. But the guy said local pick up only so hopefully he will help me out. I also need a pass side a piller cover if anyone has one. Im going to cry myself to sleep. Keep you guys posted.

disaster

My heart skipped a couple of beats when I saw that photo! My condolences. How were you ever able to right it back up between the posts?

Just WOW .

Soo glad no one was hurt there. I can't imagine the thoughts going through your head when that happened. Good luck with getting your project back on track. We've all had bad luck, I had a project car burn to the ground 3 months after completing it, at least yours in not a total loss.

Soooo....new avatar pic?
