Awr68 Thanks for the avitar, The last time I tried to put it up it was too big Thanks again.

redrambler no rendering yet I was hoping to get one some day. For last christ mas my wife had someone in one of the malls do a colored chalk drawing of it as a before. The build will be the original sub done as you see it the engine is a Bill Mitchel Limited addition 454 small block 600hp/585 tq ,it has a Dominator carb which I will try to swap to EFI when I have the cash laer. The trans is a Keisler Viper 6 spd with a hydrolic throw out bearing . Spec stage 3 clutch going into a Chris Alston Fab 9 with 31 spline Auburn pro posi with 3:50 (for now ) Mike iis making for me. I'm using an Air ride G bar 4 link with single adjustable Vari coil over . Mike is going to cut the gas tank front corners so I fit my Hooker Super comp headers and Magna flow 3" exhaust to the back. The wheels are Rushforth Livewires full polish 18 x8 5"bs front and 19 x 12 5" bs. Tires will be 245 -18 and the rears will be 345 -19s

Tha body is being reskined at mikescustomcars.com if you want to see more check it out under projects Wayne Mendoza Mike is smothing the fire wall ,and moving the wiper motor under the drivers fender. He is also puting convertable rockers on it 3 piece instead of two stiffen the body. He is also putting frame connectoers and tieing the sub frame to the rockers for stiffness. He powder coated my inner fenders and radiator suport ,and he is alining all my sheet metal. Which he does an awesome job at he welds the edgaes if needed.I have NOS front and rear bumper and al lot of new parts for outside. I also bought a set of Prodigee customs smoked glass kit. DSE elec RS conversion kit it is a real RS /SS but vacum sucks. The car is 53000 # match car all stored away.

Interior The interior is original to the car its in decent shape, but I would like to get some Marqese door panels and rear deck panel .Maybe later on.
Sorry for the rambling and I know I forgot a lot of stuff.

GMracer and Tones2SS I live in Fall River in the SE part of the state.
Tones2SS Its a factory frame solid welded and DSE and Speed Tech control arms.
Here are the rear wheels

Trere arn't many hundreds left so I used a five lol


And a few more parts that are done


Thanks for all the replies Wayne

Default Brakes

I forgot to mention the brakes I'm running are C6 Z51 13.5 " two piston front and 13" single piston rear with the Corvette parking brake, and a hydroboost.
Also the car is mini tubbed.
My next post will be in the project updates ,but I will check back for questions.
