I am not really sure what the question is, but I am pretty sure the answer is Big Block.

Pic through the trunk floor, anti roll bar is in and the shock mounts are all fabbed up, still need to add a few bars and add some bracing. The rear end housing and the upper control arm area still needs to be done but it is coming along nicely.

Awesome - I like those adjustable shock mounts, those store bought?

He has a bunch of steel brackets cut per his CAD drawings, I belive he had those cut specifically for that location and for that aluminum mount but he usually has others in stock as well as the doublers if needed. The aluminum mounts are a offset version of some he typically buys, I guess he can specify how much of a offset he needs and they adjust the CNC program accordingly. I do know that they came from two seperate vendors, I did not ask where but I can find out if you want. Checkout his facebook page at JCR chassisworks.

I have the old school chassis works or whatever style lower adjustable mounts on mine which does the job, but I really like the looks of how he did yours. Looks great.

Thanks john, I am very happy with how everything is coming out. Paul is going to intergrate my lower shock mounts into the lower control arm brackets that he is also having made. The brackets will have multiple adjustment holes for the arms but a fixed lower shock mount, hence the adjustable uppers. If you get a chance, check out his replacement torque boxes for the mustang which we have already installed, It has multiple locating holes like the shock mount and is another trick piece. I will ask where he had the upper mounts made at but here are some that are simular ones:

So being how it has been kind of slow on here, Figured I would post up some pics of where I am at with the new car. I brought it home back in early june so I can do a bunch of the little stuff not to mention take a break from it financially. The current intent is to take the car back to JCR around the first of the year, I want to go ahead and double frame rail it and start fabbing up the front suspension, steering, etc. As for right now, doing a bunch of little stuff to the nova getting ready for dragweek in September. Enjoy the pics:

Thanks guys, I wish I had the funds to progress at a faster rate, but you do what you can do. Once I get some of the other small welding done, I will post up some more pictures.
