Talking '71 Camaro pro-touring project

Hi to all members of Lateral-g,I want to introduce myself and my project cars.First of all I hope to learn alot from some of you who've gone before me with similar projects.My main project is a '71 Camaro RS .I'm in the process of converting my chassis to a C4 frame and suspension.I'm setting up my fixture and table for stretching the C4 components and when thats done I'll be removing the floor from front to the trunk and channeling the whole frame up in the body for a level bottom line and for ground clearance.I know you'll all have an opinion on my choice of mods and how I intend to pull this off,but I assure you that this can be done and that I will eventually succeed.I'm trying to take as much advantage as I can of factory geometry and engineering as I can.I may find some things that I may want to modify within that envelope but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.I am also in possession of a 2000 LS6/T56 combo that will transplanted into it as well but thats just something else to be done when I'm to the point that its readyto go in.My other project is my wifes 2002 Trans Am (WS6) I'm going to change the rear suspension to a 3-link with a watts link and a true dual exhaust with headers to go along with the new induction pieces already in place.Upgrade the springs and shocks to either coilovers or Eibach springs and Bilstein digressive valved shocks.Also new subframe connectors and rollcage.I hope I don't sound overly confident but I have quite a bit of machinig and welding as well as extensive fabrication skills.I do know I will be trying to pick a few brains so I hope you guys don't mind answering a few questions.I look forward to developing some new friendships as well as a mentor or two.Thanks for your time and good luck to you all!
