Yea Id like to see V3.0 as well but unless someone has alot of extra $$$ to donate I dont see it happening for a few years.

Pic of wheels as requested. Rears are ghetto Cragers, fronts are TT2's. I have the rear set waiting untill the rear end is swapped.

Intalling the 9" rear from a 76 Mercury Marquie with factory disc. Now for the people that are going to ask why not using Baer or PBR or ????? brand instead, the answer is budget. The rear axle was free and for the V1.0 this is what Im going to use. After paint/body etc. I can worry about weekend bolt on's. Making it a driver is priority.

Out with the old... Then attacked the third, axles and bottom of car with oven cleaner from the dollar store and the pressure washer. Stuff works good but sucks when you get it in your eyes.



Third and axles cleaned and ready to go in



Axle housing painted and ready to stuff



Calipers cleaned up, blasted and painted.

Housing in, third in, abutments in, wheels on. Keep in mind the spring plates, u-bolts, rotors and other items are there for mockup. Not in their final configuration.







Driveline appears to line up good. Will get a u-joint that will allow the camaro driveshaft to attatch to the ford yoke or a different yoke. Whichever I find first.

On the ground finally!





The Ford rear is approx 1.75" narrower than the Camaro rear. I orderd offset wheels (4.65" i think) that allow the typical 17-9.5 wheel but with a deeper lip. Looks pretty cool. (Thanks to DriversInc for helping me get the correct offset on the wheels)

Got the front done. Stock style brakes with new parts. Will be fine till able to upgrade. Oven cleaner and the pressure washer to clean up a tad, followed by the rattle can to dress things up a bit.
