Project ’55 Bel Air: Starting From The Frame Up

Project '55 Bel Air Takes On New Life Over the last few years, you may have noticed a few articles with some installations being completed on a '55 Bel Air four door. This car has been daily driven and just enjoyed, with no intentions of racing or anything like that. We've had our fun and decided it was time to tear it apart, repaint it and give it the full restoration it … [Read more...]

Project Collateral Damage: Measure Twice, Cut Once

Building The Ultimate 1970 Pro Touring Chevelle - "Collateral Damage" A few months ago our very own Lateral-G owner Jody picked up a 1970 Chevelle. He had a vision for the car - handles like it's on rails, tons of power, stop on a dime, and to be able to put ten's of thousands of miles a year on it. The goal wasn't go out and build the baddest auto cross machine ever, it … [Read more...]

Project No-Name: Blown LS Engine Build V3.0

Building A Blown LS On our Project 1966 Chevelle, we've dubbed it Version 3.0 since this is really the third major round of upgrades for the car.

Holley LS Oil Pans – Which One Works Best?

Holley LS Oil Pans - 302-1, 302-2, 302-3 On Project No-Name Chevelle we have been using the Holley 302-1 oil pan for years. With the stroker LS3 it was the perfect pan for the engine and the car. The only downside was that when turning hard the inner tie-rods would hit the oil pan at full lock. We were going to weld some stops on to fix the issue, but didn't want to lose … [Read more...]

Reviving The Dead (OPTIMA Batteries)

Bringing Back OPTIMA Batteries From The Dead Recently on Project Way-Gone we had to let the car sit for a few months. Unfortunately there was some draw on the battery so when it came time to start it up, the battery was dead as could be. We were using an older OPTIMA red top battery in it which had been working fine until we killed it by draining it way too low. We … [Read more...]

Project Way-Gone: Front End Finishing

Borgeson Install: Why Grand Cherokee Steering Boxes Aren’t Worth It!

Borgeson Install: Why Grand Cherokee Steering Boxes Aren't Worth It! Recently we've been doing some upgrades on our Project No Name Chevelle. One thing we had to do was adjust the turn signal switch and clearance the column a tiny bit as it was catching the hub adapter. It was at that point we noticed the amount of slop in the gear box. Then it hit us, this is the same power … [Read more...]
