A little more IRS progress

I am slowly chipping away at the IRS for the Chevelle, We have a final design for the Cantilever setup, I have all the pieces ordered and all the raw material in house. I will start making chips on the mill soon as I get a small break from life and can spend some time on the car. The cantilever arms are currently being water-jet cut from 4130 Chromemoly plate and should be here next week. the only thing missing in the pictures here is the big 40x21x1/2 inch Aluminum main plate which is at my buddy’s shop since its to big to fit on my mill…

Custom Dash Progress

Made some progress on a lot of things on the car, just haven’t had time to post up changes on the website. so here are some shots of the progress on my custom dash I am currently building.

The main gauge bezel was designed in solid-works and then printed on my friends Maker-bot 3D printer. because of the small print area of the printer i ended up having to print the bezel in multiple pieces and then epoxying them together. Over all I am quite happy with the outcome and is a one of a kind piece. I am still working on additional pieces for the dash, Vent bezels, A/C control bezels, etc… When I get around to printing them I will post up some pictures of the progress on the dash.

Progress……Wohoooo!

Been patiently waiting on the body shop to finish up the work on the body….. seems like every week there was an excuse to not get it done… but finally it is nearly done only a few small things left to finish and I can bring my baby home and start working on her.
