    Looks like you're taking care of all those annoying issues with the bodywork for these cars. Unfortunately, there is a lot of them.

    I agree. I added a .125" aluminum sheet under everything forward of the engine. I have another piece for under the engine, but with all the heat in the back, and wanting to gain full visuals of the...

    Dave: That rear suspension is unique. Can't tell much from the photo, but appears to have had some amount of thought put behind it. Are the angles and lengths all good (hard to tell with a...

    Yeah, I found the 930 to be a pretty much optimal gearing for a high-torque motor, if you can get around the older generation synchros. Please post some rear suspension photos when you have time.

    Congratulations on the purchase. Mechanical photos may help identify the front brakes. Looking forward to seeing everything put "right".

    Yes, but you will be limited to (I believe) 6 per post, BUT, that was a series of URL links (from a photo hosting site). If you are attaching images from your computer, than I cannot speak to that.

    What about the Montage (especially with all the work being put into this project) prevents a modified frame that uses side tanks similar to what was used on the Mirage?

    I think you'll be happier with this carb anyway, even if the Holley worked properly. I found my Proform performed better than the same "size" Holley.

    One other note. I spent some additional effort to stiffen the frame so that the stiffer springs were more effective. IMHO, when work is done on the Mirage frame, this goal will improve the handling...

    If from a turbo car, most likely a 930. The 930 is a 4-speed (very strong). The G50, which replaced the 930, is a 5-speed.

    Even with a 100% motion ratio, a 125-150 lb spring will be at the very lower end of a usable spring. IMHO, dampers are more important than spring rate in determining a "good" ride. My motion ratios...
