Well as I stated in another post, my son and I recently purchased a CMC chevette kit (unstarted). We decided that the Daytona migi wasn’t enough and thought it might be a cool father and son thing to build another and each have one to drive to shows. We purchased a chevette donor car on craigslist and drove it home. It drove well and was in pretty good shape. We parked it in the garage, took a few photos and began to chop and disect. In 4 nights and one saturday we tore it completely apart and there is nothing left but an empty hull, which my buddy is going to haul away next week. We then rolled out the frame of the kit blocked it up and started bolting up the recently disected parts. In one full saturday we got the front end and rearend bolted up under it front shock mounts attached, moter and trans set in and bolted up. We don’t have SMOG testing here in North-west Washington so we stripped off the smog pump and plugged up the manifold ports. one of the donor springs was broken so we will have to order new springs along with the shocks. We just started to bolt up the steering column and lay out the wire loom. We will also be doing more work to the migi soon, she looks confused as to why she used to get all the attention and now we’re fusing over another women. you know they are like that! More updates and photos to follow.

Nice looking car/s. How did you manage to get your photo’s uploaded? I get a blank screen when I try.December 29, 2009 at 9:07 am #240357Larry MurphyParticipant
Will, That’s a good looking MIGI. I really like the chrome wheels with the smoothie hub caps. That is the first CMC chassis I have seen that did not have the body mounted. As Paul said earlier, keep posting pictures of your progress. It;s good to hear that this is a father -son project, a great way to stay close.December 29, 2009 at 10:54 am #240358Richard WobbyParticipant

I did it just the way Richard described. I created a thread to upload the photos then deleted the thread. I also had another problem with my photos being too large for the server to accept them. So my son showed me to upload them to photo bucket first, then re-save them as a .jpeg file in a smaller format. At that point they were ready to upload to the thread. Hope I helped and didn’t confuse you further.
