As the twilight fades over the house of Doc, we find ourselves at the end of "Paint Week". This was a week off that I took from work in order to get the project paint ready and then get paint applied.

What was accomplished?

Final fab work on mounting tabs for stuff in the rear section, cab section and engine compartment. Final fab work on most sheet metal parts. Following this came complete disassembly, chassis paint prep, and parts prep.

I also finalized the last doodads on the axles and got them paint ready and painted. This included changing out the pinion yoke on the rear end for the bigger one ready for my High Angle Driveline 1410 joint, and changing out the front yoke for a pinion flange, again ready to accept the 1410 joint on the end of my 2 piece H.A.D.

I got the links out to Phoenix Heat Treating. I'll call for an update tomorrow. I expect them to be done midweek.

I actually ran out of the green spray paint I was doing the chassis with. More is on order, but it's not on the shelf ANYWHERE here in the valley.

Here's some progress shots.

Front axle... balances nicely hanging from an upper link mount!:



Rear axle, ready for oil:



Chassis, painting is stalled till more paint arrives:



These are some of the plates from rear deck, primer coated. These get Herculiner:



This sheet goes under the seats. The notches are for restraint tabs underneath:



Additional primed parts strewn across the lawn.



All of this is going to get painted or covered in Herculiner over the course of the week.

For entertainment, here's a tour of the parts of the house I can get to right now without waking anyone up. See if you can spot any of the cleverly hidden buggy parts anywhere.

Back patio:









Dining room:





Kitchen:



Living room:





The good news is that the wife wouldn't dare kick me out of the bed. She knows that the fact I sleep there is the only reason it's devoid of stacked parts.

i'm thinking that may be his on board welding machine controller.

looks great! it sucks when you have to wait for more paint to come in to finish your project. how much longer do you think you have left before it is ready to conquer some trails?

oh, and i love how the parts are ALL over the house. it reminds me of my old place w/ no garage and me working on my rig w/ tools and parts everywhere.

I'm pushing her limits... and if I'm not relatively quick about this phase... I'm going to be living alone!!!

That looks like a box of juice bags for the girls. I can't see the darker bottles in the background, but if memory serves, there's still some Stone Brewery Levitation Ale in there, and one large bottle of the Sierra Nevada 30'th Anniversary ale as well. I had some Nimbus varietal in there yesterday... but it's gone for some reason.

Your wife needed some extra "patience".....

Good job on scattering parts. Well done!

I basically bought a few pieces of metal, a VIN, and a 3D set of measurements.

Ok.....this is the 3-4th time I've laughed out loud reading this entire build in 2 days....( about 4 hours of my life I won't get back )

Great job.





P.S. you also got me on the April fools joke. I almost shit.

Ok. I need some help here.

Does anyone know where I can find dimensions specs for the LS1? Specifically, I need to know the offset distance between the flat face of the passenger side cylinder head, and the plane of the pulleys for the serpentine system.

Also, there are bolt holes on the front of the cylinder head that I could use a dimensioned drawing of, so that I can cut and drill an accurate plate to bolt on there.
