Ordered the Stroker kit today.:dance: I did go with the Scat Series 9000. Summit couldn't ship until 9/17 so I went to Jeg's who ship today.
Not sure what motor mounts I will use Novak or AA, Hoping to order them in the morning.
Found a th400 for $200 that I hope to pick up this week.

That's all for now...:popcorn:

Scooby88 09-06-2012 07:08 PM

After doing alot of looking last night on the motor mounts and the $$ they want I've decided to make my own.:whistling: AA and Novak want between $130-200. I found a build over on pirate4x4 and he made some sweet ones. I think i can make them for $50 bucks! :punk:The Scat kit will be here tomorrow and I'll drop it off at the machine shop on monday. More:popcorn:

A little interior work
 
Waiting for parts so I decided to remove the stock dash. I'm not sure if I'm just gonna cover it with aluminum (the easy way) or make a mold and do a custom fiberglass layup. Maybe if I go the fiberglass route and it turns out good...I could sell em!:thumb:

Dirty from the last trip to the Mounds with the 2.5
http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/...g?t=1347406230

Kinda a pain in the ars...but gone.

It's a little ahead of the build plan but I found an 8.8 for 200 bucks.:dance:

Ordered the th400-231 adapter today:dance:

Scooby88 09-18-2012 08:11 PM

Question about the "NP 231J"
 
Ordered the kit for the th400 to the NP231J. Seem's to be my NP231J (numbers on the tag ) happens to be a NP207 based on pictures I've found. :banghead:Am I missing something? :confused:

Scooby88 09-19-2012 07:44 PM

NP 231 23 spline found
 
NP 231 23 spline found for $150. The adapter kit doesn't ship till the first week of October.....I said this was going to be a slow build....working on the mold for the new dash.

Scooby88 09-20-2012 07:33 PM

NP231 21 vs 23 spline
 
Got the 231 23 spline tonight! $150 delivered!

They both are stamped 231J but now I see the difference from a 21 to a 23 spline.

Now this SUCKS
 
Had to replace my furnace AND hot water heater today:banghead: This hurt's the wallet...I have to keep the wife calm so I can keep the build going.:facepalm:

egillette87 09-21-2012 09:03 PM

Looks good! Cant wait to see how that mold comes out. You're going to love that Aveneger Carb, had it on my old 92 k1500 383 stroker, 5-spd manual. When floored, that thing SCREAMED when the throttle was wide open :]

LMT Rubi 09-21-2012 11:11 PM

looking good man..

Scooby88 09-22-2012 08:08 PM

The Dash
 
Got the glove box boxed in. Got some finishing work to do on it and I should be doing the mold mid week.

This was sitting by the back door today!:dance:

http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/...g?t=1348615175

I bought it through A to Z Fabrication. Now, do I do the install on the th400 myself...or take it in?:popcorn:

Zany 09-25-2012 08:11 PM

Dash Mold
 
I got the wiper motor section mounted and 2nd layer of wax applied.

http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/...g?t=1348702692

Tomorrow night, a coat of green seal and I'll start the mold. (keep in mind,this is a down and dirty mold):thumb:

Scooby88 09-27-2012 08:19 PM

Curve Ball
 
Got distracted from the build. I agreed to let an exchange student join our household. Should be back on the mold tomorrow and pop it of sunday..if any one gives a crap.:rolleyes:

Scooby88 09-30-2012 08:06 PM

Dude, Im really liking the fiberglass dash. I have a '95 in the midst of body work (rust is everywhere) and have been going back and forth on either trying my hand at fiberglass for the dash or fabricating one out of sheet metal. I like the idea of the fiberglass though. Cleaner, lighter............no possibility of rust. =) I will be watching to see how it turns out. Looks great so far.:popcorn:

Thank's I went with fiberglass because I had a box of it and I make prototype molds for a living. My plans also include making a center console. So far, I have $13 bucks in to the mold. I used leftover material from work.

Thing's got slowed down, new exchange student in our house and my daughter had a cross country meet tonight which I'm proud of her..she ran a PR of 19:34!
