Took the front end off the car, also took a little of the sound deadening out, will probably finish that this weekend.
Pushed the car outside, cleaned the garage quick too. On to the pics.

after




and figured out the mounting for the drivers seat, trying to debate the passenger seating Right now its unlevel because of how it mounts in the car, might have to build my own mounts for them to make them level

Edged out the passengers side door, waiting to dry and then putting it back on the car. Then the drivers door. After that I will start working on the exterior of the doors, then a small dent in the rear still. When this is done I have to weld up the antenna hole, rear hatch key hole, and the emblem holes. Finish bodywork, hopefully i can be done with this by april 1st because I am leaving to scotland for 2 weeks, come back hopefully with a pocket of cash so I can order the widebody and the kit I want. If so then I will be ready for paint shortly...

Alright now thats where I am at. I got deployed April 2nd to Scotland for a couple weeks, When I get back plans are to order the cage and hopefully the kit for the car so I can finish the exterior and interior and get it painted. Then the car will have small work done until I return from my next deployment in December where I will be gone for 6 months. Upon return from that one I will order Coilovers, wheels, the engine and tranny mounts, and o yea the engine. Plus other stuff. O by the way im putting a LS1 in her. I know this is different then most builds on here but figured you guys might enjoy...
