finished mounting the radiator and had to redo the steering rack mounts due to ground clearance. Finished the linkage for the steering column to steering rack.. I am a little closer but still got a long way to go..

got some updates, since i last posted i have started re doing all my brake lines and installed new master cylinder,clutch master cylinder and installed the wilwood adjustable proportioning valve, I also installed BMW projector headlights and removed the rear cross member with lower control arms and started removing the old drum brakes and bushings.Going to send them out to get sand blasted and powder coded than install energy suspension bushings and rear disc brakes..

solved the steering angle on that u joint, turned out the rod from the joint to the steering rack was too long just had to make it smaller and no more binding.. Also removed the rear suspension and removed all the rust from the LCA's and sub frame,used primer and two coats of dark gray paint came out really good. installed the rear disc brakes using wilwood calipers.. Now it turns out my rear rotors are larger than my fronts good thing my wheels still clear the calipers.. Quick question for those that have done the rear disc brakes how did you make the rear brake lines, did you go hard line off the caliper along the lower control arm and then soft line to the frame of the car or another way.If you have pictures it would help a lot.. Here are some pics of the process
