That's a bigger project than I could tackle but you are doing a great job on it. Looks like you are making the most out of the donor car too.

The rear frame rails are now being welded. The stock rear frame rails angled to the rear corners of the car which limited rear wheel well size. To remedy this, the rear frame rails now travel straight back while paralleling the wheel wells, then they make they make the turn to the corners where they mount/attach in the same location on the rear bumper support.

Closeup view from bottom of left rear rail. You can see how the rail now parallels the inner fender. The new inner fenders will extend all the way to the frame rail.

Because of the modified frame rails, the trunk floor had to be cut in spots and patched together to follow the new frame rail shape.You can look further up this page to see the stock contour of the trunk floor pan

The rear wheel wells got cut out and the new rear tubs are in process. The fabricated sheet above the rear axle will show the profile.

I negotiated a deal on a GEN 3 engine today. Pictures and details to come but I will tell you it is built for BOOST! I am leaning towards turbo charged.
