Dude, that thing is sick! What an amazing amount of work---looks like you've executed it all perfectly. Can't wait to see it with it's tires and wheels on.

Are you just going to tease us about your extended rockers or are you gonna send us some pics?

I haven't even started on them yet. Still brain storming on how I want to cut the carbon fenders and mount them. I'm thinking panel bonding an aluminum 90* section to the fender with riv-nuts to attach to the rockers and tubes to run the bolts through so they aren't 5" long bolts.

More roof work on the Camaro Saturday. More welding, grinding, and hammer/dolly work. I'm almost done though, need to weld up the front after reshaping the corners.



During the week I've been working on the fan mount and shroud here and there after work. I'm closer to tacking it up and getting it ready to weld.
I also got the fan its self mostly trimmed down and cleaned up.




I started to work on the quarter vent mounts as well. I need to get them tuned up and the box made for the under side before I fit them to the car.


The goal for next Saturday is to finish up the roof and move to finishing up the rear frame rails so I can get them all coated in epoxy and get the floors finial welded in. If I have time I want to try and start on the battery mount as well.

Saturday I decided to take a break from the roof. Its making me feel like I'm not getting much done on the car so I needed a change of pace to get some motivation back. Thats why I didn't bother with a update last week, because it was just the same welding, grinding, hammer/dolly work. Without a real game plan for the day (which isn't how I normally do things) I decided to start with getting the door latches done. Previously I had some late model GM latches that I was using. I have since changed my build plan and now use electric buttons to open the door and the C6 Corvette latches are the best solution for this in terms of serviceability and a proven design.

I started with a rough paper tracing and laid it over the striker slot and traced it to the metal. After modifying the cutout, drilling new mounting holes, and filling the old holes I made a better templet to transfer to the passenger side. That to was modified, new holes, and welded up the old holes.







I found that I had the wrong strikers, so I had to move onto something else. The C6 latches have emergency release levers in the even of power or latch failure. I mounted them the same way they are mounted in the C6.





I've been wanting to get my electronics laid out so I could start to plan my wiring. I decided the left rear wheel well was the best place to mount my rear Infinity Box power cell. Lots of room thats not being used for anything else. I built the mount and welded it in.






With all of that done I figured I start to layout the transmission cooler. Since I'm running the TR6070 7 speed it has a built in cooler pump. I wanted to keep the cooler in the rear. I think it will work perfectly in this location and blend well into my defuser. I just need to build some real mounts for it now.

Saturday I decided I wanted to get my battery mounted. I decided to keep it in the right rear of the trunk and recessed into the floor like I had in V1 of this build. I built the battery tray after work a few months back and had been playing with different locations for it, but nothing appealed to me.

Since I haven't welded my quarters back on yet it gives me a ton of room to work. I set the tray where I wanted it, traced it out, then cut it out. I have it so the battery is parallel to the ground. Since I had already built the new floor and had all that bead rolled I had to hammer and dolly out a decent amount of the lines so I could redesign them to flow with the battery box and not look like it was an after though. I was pretty happy with how it came out.

To mount the battery hold down I used my Hammer Fab rivnut dimple dies and then installed 3/8" rivnuts. The only thing left to finish is cutting out a new wider section for the trunk drop because of the wide body quarters. I have it all traced out and need to run it through the band saw. Once thats done that will be one more project checked off the check list.
