Maybe you have seen this site, maybe not. I stumbled upon it during my 2 week search for the right lights to use to light up my plexiglass in the trunk. http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...FQ7yDAodvzG40w The products are all very decently priced and they have just about everything.

Very reasonable Tom. Those spider ones I have seen on other sites for $50 each. Thanks!

Got some parts...

If you own a W body or even a newer H body where any of these types of things exist and want to upgrade, I highly recommend Erik and HT Motorsports.

Super job on the construction of these. The bushings are urethane, have grease fittings, the toe link is going to make any alignment guys day. I won't be storing these anywhere that any of my W body buddies can get their hands on them. This is going to make a difference in the handling of the car.

And I cleaned up the oil pan.
Much easier to change the mount on.

Bonds to the engine with GM goop that keeps it from leaking as much as the stocker

Has the windage tray built in, instead of being part of a stupid gasket design

Is structural so when you jack it up, it doesn't give, bend, dent or cause an oil leak

Looking good Bill. Aluminum sub frame. That should save a few pounds.

I can't even identify half of that stuff, but I liked what I saw and recognized. I'm sure you'll be busy for a few hours.

Not sure when it'll get done. I need to find a car to put it all on.

Uh yeah. I don't yet own the car I want to DD for the next couple years. So I'm buying all these parts to build a supercar once I find it.
