A car engineered to this standard shouldn't have a problem. It is certainly doable.

I know, my point was in the US you can take a car, chop it apart and go drive it which you can't in the UK.

Anyway, back on topic.

I am fortunate to be able to be as creative as I want, thankfully. Where I am in the US there's absolutely no kind of inspection since it is already titled. I just have to pay my money and get on the road (if that ever happens)! I have been slaving away doing dirty work but I have some updates coming soon.

Did you try updating your flash extension? I am using imgur to host the photos, are you having problems seeing other images hosted on that site?

I made some progress a while back but neglected to post. This was tedious work but it had to be done. I decided to add some gussets from the rear frame crossmember that would tie in to the strut tower area/frame rails.



Next I prepped the whole floor, top and bottom to remove any paint, surface rust, and factory undercoating.




Priming, seam sealing, undercoating




Painting the chassis, firewall and interior floor







seam sealed the interior floor for now

installing the front end and engine


Next up I AM starting on the body buck. But this project is taking a back seat for a few more months while I finish an engine swap/refresh in another car I have.
