Exclamation MDMonster Chassis Up-Grades!

Thought I would up-date everyone on my chassis project sine I last posted here. I had some very bad experiences here in Maryland with people and shops. So I took my car to Pennsylvanian for work to get done on her. I found a Great person (Todd Witman and Son) to do the work on my 1986 GT. Like everything, things quickly got out of control with me wanting more work done on her once I saw the quality and skill they had. Plus, they did what they said they would do and a lot of communication back and forth. Also, labor and estimates were very fair.
I started wanting to up-grade my basic frame connectors with through floor frame connector. Afterwards, I had them remove my 8 -point cage that a shop down here installed with all types of mistakes. We found kinked bends in the cage that must of been done on some sort of cheap Harbor Freight bender. Also, the rear support bars didn't look right. They were bent so the rear seat could be use and also the hatch area. Never like how it looked. They also did my torque box reinforcements, but they welds were bad. Some of the welds didn't even penetrate correctly. So I had Todd and Son do a new mild steel 10-point cage in my car with a x-brace. They even installed the swing out door bars like I wanted.
Things looked so good so I wanted more done. I inquired about a mini-tub and coil overs install. Price was very reasonable, so I went ahead and said yes. I was concerned about want to keep my sumped Aeromotive fuel tank. They took some measurements and said they could do it. Then they installed all the TeamZ suspension parts including the following:
  1. TeamZ Mini-Tubs
  2. TeamZ Coil-Over Kit with 110 lbs. springs
  3. Strange Single Adjustable Rear Coil Overs
  4. TeamZ Strip Series Upper Control Arms
  5. TeamZ Off-Set Lower Control Arms
  6. TeamZ Instant Center Bracket Kit
  7. TeamZ Anti-Roll Bar
  8. Etc.

I will be having the differential shorten/narrowed down within the next week or two. Anyway here are some pics of before and after. Hope you like.

Can someone help with posting my pics. All I am able to do is post the links from Photobucket. Thanks
