Well its been quite a few months since I have posted any updates here… Life’s been kinda crazy the last few months, quit my job, opened my own business, and designed my own line of LS3 accessory brackets for muscle cars…..
But the really good news is quitting my job has given me a lot of time to work on the Chevelle… and I have now a fully rolling chassis. We measured the car up and test fitted some rims my friend had laying around off his C4 corvette… actually they were off just a bit from a ok fit. so we crunched the numbers and found out with a little spacing we could bolt on C6/C7 wheels…
Now our original calculations showed we could bolt on the C6/C7 wheels in the back on the Camaro IRS with no spacer, but as luck would have it we needed to space the wheel out just a bit to clear the brake caliper. so I ended up with a 10MM/ .375 spacer which I bought on eBay for 30.00… figured I couldn’t build them for that cheap. but when it came time for the front spacer I just couldn’t find a spacer I liked. So I got some material from a friend who just so happend to have a 7 inch by 3 foot piece of 6061-t6 bar stock and he cut me off two pieces big enough for my spacers… and I made my own spacers… I really like how these turned out.
So now I have a completed and rolling chassis, only thing left to do on the chassis is run brake and fuel lines on the frame… but I wont be doing that till I pull the body back off and I wont be doing that for quite a while.
I have moved on and started looking at plumbing the dry sump, cooling system and intercooler for the ZL1 supercharger, fitting some more of the interior parts, and started thinking about wiring up the car…. that’s a scary thought.
That’s it for now…..
