finally some progress

well I finally got the 302 in the other week, scored a complete t5 setup last weekend, thats in now aswell.

just gotta start getting my fuel system together and what not and some nickle an dime parts and I should beable to finally get it to run.

since I been laid off I had to go ahead and use the 5.0 I already had so just stock e7heads/cam, air ga intake, 600 I think holey and a billet dist.

prally post up some pics tomorrow of the progress. Just put in a rder with summit today for most of the remaining bolts/gaskets I needed soall that will be here on friday.

Body work is about 90% with just one ding left in the drivers door, just finding another door to replace it with would be easy if it didnt come with manual windows. Just havnt felt like spending the money on a good stud weldin puller at the moment.

For that door ding, if it is small, you should look into a paint-less body repair man. Most of the time they can work out all of the ding and make it barely noticeable if at all. Should save you a dime or two.

Re: finally some progress

Just to be even more technical

coupe doesn't mean trunk style or hatch:

define:coupe - Google Search

All our cars are coupes b/c they have 2 doors with a luggage compartment.

Re: finally some progress

No, see you are being TOO TECHNICAL (LOL). Based on this definition:
a car with two doors and front seats and a luggage compartment

All Cars with two doors and an area for luggage/junk are coupes.
There are no other ways this can be depicted....

Therefore Coupe covers all vehicles that have those two items.

Now don't get me wrong, you can go into further detail as to what kind of coupe the vehicle is (although IMO a hatch is not considered the same as a side door.)

Re: finally some progress

from your define search

"Generally, a two-door car with close-coupled passenger compartment"

a hatchback is not a close comparment... the seats do not divide the seat area from the hatch area. Unlike the coupe where the seats and the package tray seperate it from the trunk area. Basically, If you can get your spare tire out without having to get out...its a hatchback :p

Re: finally some progress

also, try define:hatchback

"The tailgate is also referred to as the hatch. Hatchbacks are often described as three-door (two entry doors and the hatch) or five-door (four entry doors and the hatch) cars. "

"Hatchbacks frequently include fold-down rear seats, which enable a substantial portion of the interior space to be used as a cargo area. Usually, the rear seat can be folded partially (for instance 1/2, 1/3 or 2/3) or completely to expand the cargo space.

Hatchbacks typically have a parcel shelf: a rigid shelf covering the cargo space that is hinged behind the rear seats and lifts with the tailgate. An alternative is a flexible roll-up tonneau cover."

fox hatchs have split/bench folding seats...and they all have(had at one time) a cargo cover aswell...

Close-Coupled does not mean CLOSED or divided when referring to seats its usually a pair (like the front seats)

therefore the hatch still has a 'close' passanger compartment

As I said IMO (IMO = In My Opinion, I do not refer to the hatch as an additional door such as a side door) <--therefore not being tech at this statement

Anyway it would still be a Coupe Hatchback

Re: finally some progress

Oh BTW I love to argue (seeking a future as a lawyer). Its all in the interpretation of how you depict certain items.

Re: finally some progress

how can it be a "coupe hatchback" when both a different bodystyles?

It does not say the hatch is a door like the 2 side doors, but its alot bigger then a trunk.

so do you consider the 94+ as hatchbacks?
