New here just posting a new build. Bought an 86 442 a few months ago and started a frame off. Car had been painted(badly) a black cherry and had a bondo'd quarter panel. Frame has been repainted. Tubular upper and lower control arms, qa1 coil overs front and rear along with ssm rear control arms and all new steering from Umi I believe(been awhile). Converted it to manual steering and was tasked for deployment at that point
Pulled it a thousand miles back to Missouri and stripped it down to nothing in my parents garage. It stayed like this until a couple months ago when the body went to the resto shop. The frame was brought back to South Carolina with me for work.
Well it's been a long ass time it feels and my body guy has had a rough patch so work was delayed. When he finally dug into it the rust had eaten into the a pillar and quarter panels but nothin insane.
