    Any photos or measurements of how the new dashboard will compare to the old dashboard?

    I am still working on the chassis. i am mocking up the rear suspension now. once that is all set i will be able to set the shell on the frame and remove all the supports that are holding the body together. right now i can't set the dash stuff in place cause the body supports are in the way.

    I am looking at a 2016 Camaro complete rear setup now. Any reason you went with the Corvette instead of the Camaro?

    I have a Corvette front suspension. I am using the rear out of the 2016 Camaro. just not using the bolt in subframe, it will be mounted to the frame itself. I just started mocking it up this weekend.

I have the interior out, front end and chassis clip off and headed to the sandblaster. I hope to put it on the rotisserie within a week. Feels good to turn a few wrench’s.
