So many one-off mods and parts on this build. Great work. Are you going to stick with that GM MAF setup?

I don't plan on staying with the GM MAF. For now though, I just want to get it together and get the bugs sorted out.

I assumed by asking the obvious you were hatching a plan to negate my usage or need for an oil cooler so I made something up to foil your plan.

I'm not sure how "obvious" it is, seeing as it's located in the grille. As far as plans go, you got me all wrong, brah. If I were trolling you, you'd know it. I suppose my question should have been: Why are you mounting an oil cooler in the grille area? The front bumper area would have made it too easy for you, or what?

Thanks. I'm hoping the hidden motor mount hardware doesn't come back to haunt me.
I know it looks rough with half the paint missing at the moment. Since I stitch welded all the seams I plan to dress the welds smooth and re-seam seal over it to blend it like factory.
All the unused holes have been welded/are being welded. Including the hole where the factory engine harness entered the bay.
The upper radiator support was miss-shaped and always set my ocd radar off. I'm working on making it nice and uniform now that it doesn't need to house the hood latch support/prop rod etc.
I can't wait to get it under primer and get a better look at how smooth it's really going to look.

Nice find! I think grass could grow in the soil of that one wheel. How many thousands of miles does a cv boot/axle seal have to be leaking to produce that? I'd bet the things aren't even round.

Almost all the welding/grinding is complete. I'm hoping to be in primer Friday night.

This is about to be the most custom build in GVR4 history. I can't believe you permanently integrated that intercooler pipe into the frame rail

Does anyone know if the factory steel sleeves stay in place when installing the Energy subframe bushings? I don't wanna mess with it after I paint it and I haven't gotten the bushings yet.
