    Well today the lincoln was towed to my friends fab shop. We ripped apart the front suspention and worked on the rear.

    I just got my manifold and other parts back from the powdercoater and will be taking the bumpers and grill for the powdercoating treatment very soon...

    He will be building me a full front suspention and a triangulated 4 link in the rear so this this thing can lay "unibody"

    Pay attention for updates...........

    Here's a few updates. We arnt going to use any parts that are off the shelf. The front suspention will be a very sweet design and will allow the car to hit the ground which the current air ride kit wont let you do. The rear will also be designed to let you hit the ground and not worry about any geometry changes.

    Whered the bottom of the trunk go?

    rear springs gone so we can develop a link setup

    This is the shop where its at. they typicaly build race vehicle suspentions and cages.

    This s-10 will have something like 18 inches of travel :eek:

    Last night we stripped all the sound deadening out of the trunk and LOT AND LOTS of seam sealer. VERY messy! I will be laying down new dynamat and seam sealer once it's all repainted.
