You'd be surprised. Guy on my local club will get a project car 80% done, then cut it up, keep the good stuff and scrap the rest..

Some people enjoy doing the project more than actually completing it.

Hey all. This project is alive and well. Just doing little stuff here and there. Had a few setbacks like my buddy scrappin my panhard bar and pinion stubber. So in the process of fabbing sontjing up there.

In between ive been welding the driveshaft tunnel completely in.

Getting the rear end in and centered was a challenge. Well is. But almost done. Trailing arms are completed.

After that rear suspension gets mocked up. Fuel cell. Body sealer caulk and it starts going back together. The car then gets carted to my buddys shop for some big boy welding on the frnt shock tower to chassy area. My 100amp mig flux will omly get u so far....

Update

I live in Columbus as well as tgdrums1990. I don't know him personally , however I went to the local pick n pull junkyard, and there lay his shell. Trans tunnel in and all of his work. Motor and trans gone, interior stacked up inside. He must have given up. I will upload pictures tonight.

Yeah, things ended up getting complicated in his life, and the car was an unfortunate casualty.

A RWD conversion is complicated enough without life getting in the way.

It just sucks that both of our RWD conversions are now dead

It's unfortunate that's for sure, he was pretty far along. I hope all is well with him.

That sucks. Hope he's doing ok.

I wish I had the skills to do a rwd swap. I have my friends complete manual g35 in the back yard. With front and rear end damage but all the important parts are still intact.

I'll be honest now and no offense. But I would've junked that car too. Those welds are scary to say the least, just bird shit on and looks like no penetration from here. And thats not good when youre cutting out the frame rails and putting new ones in.

I agree on the welds not being up to par, however they could have been ground down and re-welded much better. There was rust through some of the paint he put over his welds. It would have not been safe at all IMO if he kept it like that. But what can be fun and safe? lol All jokes aside, a RWD swap is too much work for one person alone on a CB chassis. I give him props for attempting it.

It can be done by one man. The three things needed are: money, resources, and time.
