    That's prettier than pretty...  Glad to see your update, Tim!  I was starting to suffer from withdrawl.

    Good theory but, for me anyway, it's oftentimes difficult to put into practice.

    Thank you Stan.  Trying to keep it moving along, however slow my progress might be.

    Thank you for chiming in, Brian.  I'm happy with how it's going together.  My biggest problem is simply having and taking the time to get meaningful work done on it.

    Yeah.  I'm working on some hats, Henry.
    Hey Tyrone.  Thanks brother!
    Joe - thanks for the kid words.  Much appreciated...

    Thanks, so much, Håkan.  I appreciate your stopping in.
    Thank you Henry.  I've got the slotted rotors in 1/16th.

    I appreciate it Darryl.  Will do.  The question is just "how fast?"... LOL

    Looks really good, Joe.  For being a Ford guy, Malibus of that vintage have always been a favorite of mine.

    Thanks Ray.  I appreciate it.
    Thanks, too, to all of you who replied after my previous post.  I totally spaced off on replying to comments...

    As usual, progress on my Fairmont build has gone by fits and starts.  The positive thing is, I do have some progress to report.
    I received some very cool front and rear brake hats/hubs back in June that will find their way onto this build.  This pic shows the bare front hub beside an assembled hat/rotor/stud assembly.  I developed a set of retrofit slotted rotors that I've decided I'm going to use on this build instead of the drilled set.

    A little bit higher angle of the rear assembly.  The rears were machined to accept my photo etch brake rotors and have the equivalent of a 5” bolt circle.  The front hubs have a slightly smaller bolt circle and stud hole diameter and should work really nicely for a set of spindle mount wheels

    What the rear looks like with the rear brakes mocked up on the axles:


    In addition to the hub detail, I finally got around to working on the trans tunnel and pan.
    I was a bit concerned about removing the tunnel integral with the pan because I wasn’t sure how much flex it would introduce into the pan, but it seems manageable.





    I build some stepped receivers into the floor pan under which the flanges on the tunnel fit.  They add some finish and a bit of rigidity to the floor.  The PE tunnel is actually a two-piece unit.
    Since the new system doesn't appear to let me preview how things look, I hope everything is more or less in order.
    Thoughts and comments welcome.
