Body in white or BIW refers to the stage in automotive design or automobile manufacturing in which a car body's sheet metal components have been welded together — but before moving parts (doors, hoods, and deck lids as well as fenders) the motor, chassis sub-assemblies, or trim (glass, seats, upholstery, electronics, etc.) have been added and before painting.

The name derives from manufacturing practices before steel unibody or monocoque bodies — when automobile bodies were made by outside firms on a separate chassis with an engine, suspension, and fenders attached. The manufacturers built or purchased wooden bodies (with thin, non-structural metal sheets on the outside) to bolt onto the frame. The bodies were painted white prior to the final color.

A folk etymology for Body in White suggests the term derives from the appearance of a car body after it is dipped into a white bath of primer (undercoat paint)— despite the primer's actual gray color.

In car design, the Body in White phase refers to the phase in which the final contours of the car body are worked out, in preparation for ordering of the expensive production stamping die. Extensive computer simulations of crash worthiness, manufacturability, and automotive aerodynamics are required before a clay model from the design studio can be converted into a Body in White ready for production.

Factories may offer BIW cars to racers, who then may replace up to 90% of the car with aftermarket parts. Frequently racers must apply to purchase one of these cars.

The World Challenge driver lineup that was just released shows Lou driving a Camaro in GTS. I'm guessing this is more than "a shop car".

We are still in process of building this particular car. We did purchase a completed car and have spent the last few weeks making it our own and testing.

Lou will be driving the #28 LG Motorsports GTS Camaro at this weekend's Long Beach GP in SCCA World Challenge.

The wing on the Camaro is the same cord as the GT2 car, but the rules call for a narrower wing on the Camaro.

I'd love to see you guys design a new intake manifold for the LS3, not much out there worth the coin.

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!
