Here is some information on LS engine CPU, PCM, Gas pedals, throttle bodies when rebuilding an LS engine. I also talk about Holly Terminator aftermarket systems.

For the 33 Hot Rod V with an LS engine - 4L60 Transmission, you will have clearance issues and need to move the engine forward.

As for mechanics, I would say:
Grinder/cut off wheel has been very handy.
Good multi-rotating vice.
Right angle drill adapter for hard to drill spots.
Tap set
Drill bit/ tap all in one bit - fantastic.

People have been saying a band saw and lathe is good for precision cuts on the spacers needed for engine mounting and such. However, that is a lot of tool for a few cuts if you do not own one. So I say vice, cut off wheel and grinder to trim it in. Or, I am going to use a miter box with long tubing and a wood jig with 10" cut off wheel. Only cost $4 for the "blade". We will see.

As for body work:
Air reciprocating saw
Small die grinder
Hook & Loop fastener Durablock's multiple sizes


On my videos, in the descriptions, I made up these overall list for people to easily check out and find tools:

Factory Five Body Work, Paint and Lizard Skin http://bit.ly/2MOoCMe

If you go to any of my later videos you will see more links with list of items you can use.

Hope that helps.

There is clearance issues with the 4L60e transmission. I have to dial in the height so the driveshaft of the Factory Five 33 Hot Rod V2 so it is positioned correctly.

I am continuing with body work and digging into the waterfall and cutting in the dash of the Factory Five 33 Hot Rod V2.
