Just about everything. Engine, trans, computer controls, complete front suspension, complete rear suspension, firewall, front half of the floor, gas tank and fuel system, complete interior, air bags, all electronics.

I had some time today so I got the right fender leaded up and finished smoothing out both of them. There's still a lot of work to be done on the fenders before I can take them off the car.

Are you going to add the new parts on the old frame -- or just build a new chassis and integrate everything that way?

I'll mount the suspension sub assemblies to the 49 frame. It's rust free and very strong with an X member like the convertibles used.
