Let me know what you all think?
I am curious as to what kind of repair they did on your rocker.
Did they weld in new metal? Or just slather on some filler?

Well they told me they welded a piece of metal in, but I'm not 100% sure...I'm not sure how to tell...some of the stuff the guy did really didn't impress me!!

Ok guys I want to start putting this 510 back together...I'll put photos up soon of what i have of the car...My question is, I want to put some front and rear coil overs on the car. What should I go with? Troy Ermish, Techno Toy Tuning, or is there something else... I want to be able to covert all brakes to disk, and would like to put a good size wheel on it. Oh yeah this car will be for street, I would like to drive it often. Not a race car, not a track car.... Pls also consider the $$$$$.

I have looked on this forum, I see the suspension thread, but I seems like every person is very different in regards to what they have on there car... if you guys don't mind just giving me some ideas on what to do..

Thanks

I'm thinking of sending my car off to a body shop since the motor swap keeps getting delayed... I just need to figure out how far I want to go, patch and replace, or full scale paint...

or find a "better" shell.

So today I have been trying to get the steering back together. Does this picture look right? If I'm not mistaken, this is the center link. It looks, to me, like something is missing.?
