put the 383 in the toyota
build a big block chevy or better yet a 496 stroker for the car.
you'll probably get the same milage as a cammed small block but you will have tons of torque to burn the tires off.

I ain't 30!! And the stroker went In after I scrambled the 360.. When I was 19
6-7 years.. Maybe has 5000km on it

Even the 5.3L with a cam would probably trump ur current 383 power level they are potent little mills plus its lighter make it go faster[cheers]

No, so that if it's done properly it would incorporate proper 50's style "rat rods" with a newer body style vehicle. But whatever. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. Way to have constructive input.

did some other tinkering with frame... found out my toyota fits in my 7' high house garage with half a foot to spare..


wont be using any of the original a-arms or links in the rear.. or brakes for that matter.. or anything but the original frame rails really.. diffs going to jimmie at geard for a complete overhaul...

i should have frame notched, boxed, reinforced.. sandblasted and painted ready for reassembly by the end of this weekend.. or maybe next week... see how i feel

Ahhh ya thanks eh[cheers] I picked up some 1/8x4 flat to box the insides up.. Finishing that today, I keep looking at that picture of the rear crossmember i added and want to tie it in to the existing crossmember/rear link mount somehow without addition of much more weight, and so it still looks clean. :confused0006: :confused0006: ..

So had some time, spent most the day waiting for welds to cool.. Boxed in sides, lower control arm mounts at the frame and a few other pieces here and there.

Need to make a new tranny crossmember this week. Hopefully finish everything and get it painted so next weekend is chassis assembly time.

Oh right, almost forgot about Malibu... been waiting for brakes, I'm to OCD to assemble the chassis till I have everything, and apparently should've ordered sooner then I did

Brakes came.. This is the rear set, 13".. 4 piston
But they brought me an 11" 4 piston front set in , so have to send back and hopefully expedite a 13-14" 6 piston front set out

I tried those wheels on to see how they fit, there was a good deal if I wanted them. The rear was 10" but could probably squeeze it out to a 12" roll the lip a bit..the front was an 8" had plenty of room. I have yet to commit to a wheel, I'd like to see it painted up and a little more finished then find the wheel that fits just right[cheers]

ya i love the plasma, perfect size for what im doing and super smooth to work with.

just started to clean up around drip rails... gathering up the balls to dive in and do it, im not sure if i want to make it a straight edge or use some nice 3/16 or 1/4 round to edge it off with...as well i would like to finish off the front and rear window frames and flush up to the windows like the newer but i just dont want to dive in that far.... ill just black out the trim to match car lol
i wish i could find a better article to read on someone who has done the trim fill tho... would be interesting to read

body changes like that are uncharted waters for me

Was with custom glass that was made to fit the openings but costs huge
There is also trims that are glued to glass to fill the gap

Well, chassis is a roller at least!.... borrowed some 20's from a friend so i can shuffle around.. waiting for some bolts to come in and ill get the body swapped over.

i think im changing ideas a bit, cars going to be for cruising around on summer nights.. i think i may forget about the cage, not really wanting my prego gf to have to worry about getting in and out. i would still like to run the 5-points so i think ill bend up a B pillar bar and just weld in removable ends.. keep it neat
