When I left GA, AMP was still embroiled in legal battles. I had forgotten about it until recently when I heard it was finally built and open. I'm glad it seems to be working out. Road Atlanta is also in a very pretty area of the state. I hope to do some HPDE classes one day at either or both. Maybe even track days on my motorcycle

I can't wait til I return home.

One small step for man, one giant step for me. Now I can start building my roller! Paint doesn't look too bad for an electrician. I will not spray the body.

Put my lower motor mounts in place, and front suspension arms on. I did not buy lowers that were designed for coilovers, so I knew all along I'd be modding my lowers. I wasn't sure how far I'd have to go, until I nailed down my ride height. I'm using 7" stroke shocks.

This is at ride height. As you can see, I had to add 2" to the bottom of my arms, in order to get 2.5" of shock travel, which is about 5" of wheel travel. The modded arm is still above my crossmember at ride height. Should be ok, I hope.
I have always raced on Penske's, but I think I'm gonna give JRI a try.

I installed all new steering items, and went with the infamous jeep Cherokee box, which is a 12.75:1 ratio, for a mere $75.00.

I bolted on some scrubbers. Probably not big enough for a heavy Chevelle, but we will see.

Are the rear coil over mounts going to be strong enough? I would think you'd need a double shear mount since the weight of the car is being carried through the mounts now.

I like the silver color.

I at this point am not sure. We ran these style mounts on our race cars, which were lighter for sure, but saw very high loads while cornering. I will mod what I have, if so. The silver color is the new silverado bright silver. It will be the body color also. I have never built a vehicle with the chassis/body the same color.
