In this first episode we go over the history of the car. How I ended up with it and how I initially built it. I then go into some details about the plans for the car, but just what the overall goal is. There is plenty in store for this build and I will be […]
I finish clearing out the items from the firewall, Pull the dash in order to complete clearing the firewall and then we do some grinding and welding inside the engine bay in preparation for a whole lot and sanding, then eventually paint!
A whole lot of sanding! I start the sanding and smoothing process of the engine bay. This took about two days to complete for a total of about 10 hours of actual work. Sanding was done with 160/220 grit paper and finished with 3M 600 grit red scrub pads. Some heavy spots were done using […]
We break out the new Devilbiss Startingline kit I bought to paint the car and go over it and set it up. We then move on to the Kirker Black Diamond line of paint and get some mixed up. Finally we spray the engine bay.
The unveil of the engine bay paint job with the clear coat. We now begin working on reassembly in preparation to re-install the engine back into the car. We start reassembly in this episode with firewall insulation, engine bay wiring harness and more!
Trying to finish up all of the little things in preparation to drop the engine back in. Finalized the engine harness and made all of the repairs to it. Started cleaning and powder coating the little parts for the engine bay and motor. Worked on the AC lines, polished them up, rebuilt the blower motor […]

Finally get the engine dropped back in! Motor fought a little bit due to the solid motor mounts but in the end it’s back where it should be. Did some work closing off the AC system by filling it with oil and vacuuming the system out.
I work on getting the transmission installed and run into a couple problems that were easily resolved. Button up the drivetrain and underside components of the car. Start on the battery tray assembly and run into another problem. The Stealth Project Ep10 – Transmission and Drivetrain Install
