I will post an update in the next couple days. I was waiting on a few parts from Speedtech to finish mockup on the engine and front suspension.

This is the first of several updates coming. In order to get this car low, we decided major cutting will be required. Without revealing to much too soon, the entire floor of the car has been removed. I wanted nothing below the pinch welds of the rockers, so starting with the newly aquired speedtech subframe, I cut the rear rails in half. Don't worry, there will be plenty reinforcing of the chassis to handle the reduced loss of strength.



With the rail cut in half, it also required lowering the front body mount and core support mount equal distance. With modifications completed, and front subframe mounts bolted directly to the car, the sub now sat level with the pinch welds of the rockers, and the front floor pans are only 1/2" higher than stock.
