I had ABC Performance, in Michigan, custom build me some custom boxing plates. They build a lot of boxing plates, but this was the first set they built with lightening holes in them.

I added another crossmember in front of the axle, that my two tubes that run front to back, tie into. I added trussing off of these tubes, into my new boxing plates.

damn, looking good! I really wish I had done this to my chevelle. I didn't put a lick of stiffening to it other than a roll cage....

Welcome to the site. Where in GA are you located? I'm from GA and am trying to move back to the ATL and mountain region. I love it there. I just need to find an engineering job first.

Love what you're doing with the Chevelle. Do you have plans to build the engine or just run with what it has to offer stock?

Thanks Dug, I am going to try a "big bar, soft spring" setup that used to work well for me when I raced NASCAR late models. I am gonna dodge some cones, and being as how these a-body frames are as flimsy as a fly swatter, I figured I better try something. I might cage this car also, which would really add a lot of stiffness. I'm on the fence with the cage, due to the weight. I've already added more weight than I wanted to.

Thanks! I'm in Dawsonville, about 1 hour north of ATL. As far as my engine goes, I worked with Mast Motorsports to "pick it up a tad". I'll cover more of the engine side a little later. It's a pretty mild LY6.

I like Dawsonville. Gorgeous area. I've been through there a few times and loved it. You're not far from AMP. Any plans to visit or have you visited already?


Don't worry about the added weight. Just add more power to bring the power to weight ratio back towards your goal

Trey, I am up in the N. western part of the county, just a couple of miles from Amicalola Falls. It is a beautiful place to live, for sure.
Glad you mentioned AMP. I have been, in fact my son, who is 9, is a big fan of exotics, so we go over there to check out the lambos, and ferrari's. Itis quite a place, and I'm amazed they chose this area to build it.
I'm a very weight conscious guy. The cage would place weight high...exactly where I don't need any more with this boat. We will see.
