No, not currently. They are doing the drag package COPO cars..but nothing as a road race version.



Update on the project, as you guys may or may not know. We did move so progress on the race car has been paused for the time being but I will update everyone when things are moving again!

Wouldn't it have made more sense to soda that bad boy before all that seam welding and Fab work? (My eyes hurt just thinking about all that seam welding, lol)

We just had our second Grand am Civic come through our paint booth at the shop getting ready for Daytona in Jan. (I think they have 2 or 3 more to get ready...)

Nice looking build! looking forward to seeing it all come together!

Typically blast them after to remove any weld splatter. While the cage is tig welded, the seam welds are all mig.

Anthony,

Curious if you weighted the car when it arrived?

Kinda want to know how much a "white" car weights..

I want to say it was around 1100 lbs no doors, hood, fenders, or deck lid. I don't have the exact weight in front of me right now. I do remember the doors are 50 lbs each with no glass, trim, handles, mirrors....completely bare so those guys are heavy.
