Default 68 camaro "Golem" widebody

I started this in 06 and through many set backs im starting to see a light at the end of my tunnel.
Usual rust repair and panel replacement of this plain v8 Camaro
All new floors, 80% quarters , fenders, package tray, header, mini tub, ect, ect.
Speed Tech Sub
G-Bar rear w/fab9 & 33 spline wavetrac 2
LSX427 w/twin 88s
Jakes 4l80 with coen
bigstuff 3
Dakota VHX
Ricks tanks w/ fuel lab pump

i went back and forth between 405 25 24 and the 355 30 19,
ended up with the 355's but i still feel like i should have done the 405's
those are the parts i already have.

all the replacement panels have been done for years as i bounced around from shop to shop finding shops that promised the world but only ended up wasting my time and resources.
all of the fab work has been done in the last year. im waiting in line for my turn to have my rear gbar brace modified to allow for the proper ride hight and cage points to be mocked up for final fender positioning before the final welding begins on the cage.

you can always catch current pics (lots more on the FB page)on

here are the renderings. the last red rendering is if i was using the 405's
im still on the fence about the door handles , im leaning toward keeping them
the roof strip isn't just a strip its a bodyline i "borrowed" from the roof line of a 5th gen ( i need to take some pics , its already done)
i am taking small details from other generations so i need to look at the 6th gen as well
i was completely inspired by Milt Burleson's Dyno West Camaro on my built

What coil springs do you have in those rear shocks? I have the same set up. I had to put 10" springs in my car and it still sits way too high.

in this picture here it is sitting on jack stands with the springs removed, my desired ride height can be achieved but i have to modify the gbar top brace because my center section hits it. im mini tubbed and my wheel wells are a bit taller as well because i planned on being able to slam it which is why i like more info on the JRI stuff. i am also going to be lowering my rockers and rear valance to give it a lower look as well.
