Yup! That's what I'm talking about. A nice rack & pinion and no shock towers. I'm gonna get my cooling upgraded (4 row alum. rad.) and next on the list is that suspension setup in front. Big money...with big results!! I can't wait. I'll keep u guys up to date once I get my car back on Tuesday.

All right you guys can no longer post pictures of your cars. I am sorry but it just makes it harder for me to look at mine and see how far I have to go yet.

Really nice cars I can't wait until I am at a point that I can start showing clean painted parts.

Hey, we all suffered to get to this point. You should've seen what condition the seller delivered my fastback in !!! Just terrible, but I know what you mean....it's difficult to see in the future and imagine what your car will look like. I'm a little obsessed with my car and spend hours just looking at it and planning my next step. God knows I've blown my budget out of the sky so many times too...lol. Patience my friend.

I know it is a lot of work and I have started and stopped it twice this year because of other things popping up. The first of the year I have cleared my calender so I am working on it as much as I can. As I tell all my students Baby Steps are all that are needed and you will get there.

Merry Christmas
Mike

Nice Dean. What do you plan to do in the backseat area? I have a 6 point cage and come up with every excuse to not do anything in the back. No room to even clean the inside back glass. Looks great. Keep up good work.

Thanks DaddyO, I plan on installing all the original panels that I can back in and then try and fabricate some kind of rear seat delete setup. The battery will get relocated right behind the passenger seat and somewhere in the rear panels try and incorporate some more speakers. All this will be done in a very subtle way, by that I mean using the same carpet in back, locating the speakers and other accessories in hidden places. Oh and I just got my parts for my smaller steering wheel setup! So happy. Click image for larger version

I found a 40mil bituminous self adhesive membrane and a air/resin double aluminum sided insolation. Very inexpensive and very light weight. I had looked at dynamat and it's super heavy, plus I couldn't use lizard skin in my garage at home. So far so good.

I have the car in a shared underground garage and I can't start using compressors and paints around other peoples cars. It sucks cause I would of loved using lizard skin. They ended up evicting one guy with a 73 fastback just cause he started sanding body panels and stuff...

Oh damn ha I thought there was something special you had to do. I don't think I could ever live in a place like that! But have you had a chance to test it out?

Look, I've done many things in my garage ( mechanical, some painting and minor suspension ) but I do live in a condo, I'm lucky I have an indoor spot and that over the winter months I get to do some work. I just have to be careful with some on the other co-owners.

How much does it weigh? I'm planning on taking out my stock sound deadening since it supposedly weighs 50 pounds, but I'm not against adding only a few from lighter sound deadening.

The membrane (10"x16') must weight 2 lbs and the air/resin one (24"x10') no more than 1 1/2 lbs for the roll. It's super light. I read that dynamat weighs 1lbs per square foot.

And it's already making a huge difference in the car. I started the car just to charge the battery and circulate the fluids and the difference is great! I've used a sub layer with the membrane and a second layer with the other roll. I plan on doing this all over the car except where you step with your feet ( in front of the front seats) the rest will be covered.

Home Depot buddy! I did some research for about 2-3 weeks and realized the products they sell online for heat and sound are from the same compounds and materials. And it's not about price, even though it does come out cheaper my way but my main priority is the weight issue. No point in taking out back seats, relocating batteries and then adding 50-100lbs to the car. I'm sure the other products like dynamat are great also but honestly the way I'm doing my car, I would easily add over 100lbs. That would be from the firewall, doors and the whole back area.

Yea exactly. i removed my back seats and everything, swapping out my leather power seats for race seats, trying to get a bunch of weight out. I plan on focusing this car toward performance so i don't care too much about the harshness and sound, but if i can knock out a bunch of that sound with 5 pounds of sound deadening sign me up!

I'll take a look for that stuff when i pull out my stock sound deadening over summer.

Speaking of old material, I ended up finding 2 small dead mice in my old headliner insolation! Lol. I'm gonna use the air/resin insolation and then maybe get a one piece headliner...
