Default Project "save the two tone"

So I acquired a two tone shell from Texas not too long ago, and I have a rotted coupe that's not worth anything to me, so I'm doing shell transfer. Got the car with pretty much nothing at all (no gas tank, no brakes, diff, powertrain, etc.) and my other car has everything.

This is how I got it. (Excuse all the Instagram screenshots)



This is my parts car.



Started off by painting the bay.


Before and after.


Rhino lined the booster because why not.


Starting to mount stuff up.


Putting the wiper motor, ps reservoir, and a couple other things on tonight. Gonna start degreasing the front crossmember and bolting up suspension/front end parts soon.

Pulled the motor and trans out of the other car.

My noise issue



Diff right before it went in.



Single slammer is in along with axles and driveshaft, brakes, and the pedals are hooked up. Soon enough it'll be on the road.
