Thank you kind sir
To Polish or Not to Polish?
Do any of you have any experience with polishing aluminum on a bench polisher? I want to polish the aluminum fuel rails that mount on top of the intake before I set up the fuel system. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Yup, been there done that.
I have often thought of copying my build thread over on this forum, but it seems
that pretty much each area is a "High Tech Retrofit" down to hands free phone.
See sig link for plenty of reading material.
That engine looks fantastic! I love how the paint makes it look anodized!
Well, after much too long of a break, here is the latest updates. Pulled subframe, stripped, cleaned, KBS coatings 3-part kit application, energy suspension mounts (have energy system for the entire car), mocked up the engine onto the frame and now to notch/pocket the frame to clear the A/C.
That's all for tonight. Need to decide if I want to purchase a ready-to-go cross member or pull out the plasma cutter and mig
Nice mock up! subframe turned out fantastic!
As per our PM chat, there are benefits to buying some things out of a catalog to
move the project along. That said, I did not remove the subframe and have that
level of access you have there. I fear sending you measurements to use, if for
some reason things do not line up. I had access to the '78 Camaro until today I
needed to make room in the garage yet again for the wifes oil leaking LS Camaro.

You also may want to bolt the passenger side upper control arm on, the one on
our Camaro had molecular overlap with the LT1 accessory bracket. I cover this
in my install thread below.
If you need a shifter, I have a 700R4 B&M Megashifter I can sell, similar to :
Hi and thank you for the great information. I would like to keep the stock shifter and change the detent's to the shiftworks model. I have seen the necessity to radius the accessory bracket to clear the passenger side upper control arm. My plan is to do as many of the mods as possible while sitting on the frame. I have a plasma cutter and mig, so I'll notch and pocket the frame without any troubles. I'm hoping to set up the primary exhaust where it sits as well. Since my doner vehicle was a '95 Caprice Police Cruiser, it has factory dual exhaust and dual cats which I still have. I'm hoping not to have to use the electric air pump. The pump was removed and a decal was mounted on the radiator support that it was removed per the factory TSB xx.xxx. I called the referee and he said "yes", but said to keep the decal which I have. Did you keep your air pump? Thanks again!
