    A few shots of the installed suspension.  There were a few steps in between, like welding the brackets to the housing.  I've since attached the sway bar and added brake lines.
     
    Instead of changing gears and adding a True Trac, it was pretty much a wash to get a new nodular housing from Quick Performance, with a lower ratio and the True Trac. Then went with 31 spline and new axles.  Scope creep.  I didn't put the snubber on, not knowing if I'd need it with this suspension.  I think I'd have a lot of other problems if it bottomed out.  If I need to add it back, please share.
    I can't set it up until all the weight is on the car, but it rolls again.

    The TCP coil-over parts finally arrived and installed.  I had the spindles powder coated black.  I liked how they sort of disappeared and let the expensive suspension shine through.
     
    13-inch Baer disc brakes added.
    I have some more pictures to take tonight of the TCP rack.

    Thanks, RPM.  I might have fallen off because I haven't been very timely in posting.  Been a busy few months of work.
    I considered not getting the sway bar, but as I remember, it would have been quite a bit more expensive to add it later, so I went ahead and bought it.  I bought the drop brackets for the TCP control arms, so yes, I did the drop without drilling the shock towers.

    Here is the TCP power rack installed.  That sticker is coming off.  Power booster rebuilt and installed. Stainless front brake lines in.  Baer master and prop temporarily installed.  Mounting base for hydraulic clutch  mounted beneath that.
    From the back.
    It's a really nice piece.  It ought to be.  Probably the nicest it will ever look.

    Raptor Liner on the back half of the car.  I really like how it turned out.  Not hard to work with once you figure it out and pretty forgiving. Color is actually black.  Just a strong flash.
    With the carrier installed and ready to weld.  This is why I sprayed the liner first.  I like the contrast.
    I used the Raptor spray can to touch up.  This is closer to the actual color.

    It was a busy summer. And fall. And winter.  But made progress.
    First was getting it ready prepped and ready for the TCP rear suspension.  Aside from all the wire wheels work, I had to take this out and smooth it out.
    Stripped and primed.  With the TCP rear suspension, you have to use the upper rack to place the weld-in brackets. Problem is once they're welded in, the bolt-in rack won't come out.  I decided to go with the Raptorliner, so I had to go in stages.  That's what the blue tape was for. 
    I also trimmed and capped the bump stops while I was at it.

    It's been a while.  Work has been crazy and when the photos all disappeared, I was a little demotivated.  So in the past year, I stripped and refinished the engine compartment.  Self-etching primer, then gray primer.
    Then semi-gloss black.

    Saved up for one of these as a Christmas present to myself.  Wanted it for years and wondered why I waited so long.  The only thing worse that cleaning the underside is doing it on your back. 
    Not the wheels that will be on the car, just using the wheels off my son's 2003 Mach 1 that have been sitting in my garage for two years.

    Cleaned off all the old undercoating and seam sealer.  Removing fifty years of gunk and grime suuuuucks.

    Added new seam sealer.  Still some more prep then prime and paint.  I'm on the fence whether to add Raptor liner to the bottom.  I don't expect I'll be driving it in anything but the best weather, but the liner is easy to clean and will help hide ugly welds that are coming with the subframe connectors and rear suspension.

    Thanks.  I was/am going to call Baer, but wanted to check here first since there's so much model-specific knowledge.  Can't do that until Thursday, but I am in a four-day meeting and can pretend I'm answering emails.
    I wasn't too worried about gutting because NPD has rebuild kits.  But it's probably best just to remove it from the system.  Put it in a ziploc bag and in the container bin with the rest of the stock parts.

    This is great.  Thanks again.  Far more helpful than the tech line.  I'm going to get that cam regardless, but would be nice if I don't have to dive into more work.
    Probably won't get to checking until Tuesday.  I was told it's family time now for the holiday weekend.  Apparently family time starts with a weed eater.
