Unfortunately we haven't been logging everything. We would like to hit 3400 lbs, but its hard to say with all the grinding, fabricating, etc that has been done. We gained some weight back with the cage.


Update:

Over the past several days i have been working on a close out panel for the trunk to separate it from the interior since we lost the rear seats. This stuff hasen taken time. lots of it. It is one of those things that though it may look pretty simple, not many people realize how much time and effort is put into it. Here are some pics.

The template was the first step. Hours of fitting, checking, trimming, trashing, cutting, checking, trimming, you get the idea... the driver and passenger sides were not identical as well so had to do a separate template for each side.

Attachment 546141

Hand cut the panels from the template

Attachment 546142

Made two bends to comply with the frame it will sit against in the trunk.

Attachment 546143

More hours of test fitting, trimming, testing again, etc.. (pic below is unfinished)

Attachment 546144

Cut into the panel to make it a "trim". This trim will frame a solid sheet of carbon fiber. still need to drill holes for small bolts.

That's the goal. Once it comes from paint, we will be 90% there.

Quick update:

We are sending the wheel to DCT to make us a one off deal. They specialize in Ferraris, Lambos, Audis, etc.

They do incredible work and can literally do anything. Every request we have made has been met with the response "No problem"

We are going to take some ideas from all the wheels below to come up with something unique for G5.R....For a special treat, visit their Facebook page DCTMotorsport

They are are making us a few other pieces which will compliment the Cobra seats to bring the interior to a whole new level.

One of the many reasons its just as easy to drop like 10 grand on an interior as it is anywhere else on a car.

I've followed this thread (and that little one that started out as relocating a few things under the hood) and I've seen Pfadt's name mentioned numerous times. I thought I'd post a photo of Aaron Pfadt leading George Smith (both in Corvettes, George is also a user of Pfadt products) and one of 'em taking different lines thru a turn (the Turn 5 hairpin at Miller Motorsports Park) in 2010. I was a track photographer there until sports car racing took a back seat to off-road stuff. I have no interest in that at all.

I can't remember if Aaron ever got any of my photos, but I sure enjoyed seeing him, George and J R Smith (no relation to George, but another Pfadt customer/sponsee) race.

There are a lotta road racing photos on my primary website: http://www.chevyasylum.com/Welcome.html (click on the Road Racing thumbnail, then select a year, then an event and so on) as well as other car stuff. I primarily do car shows and Land Speed Racing now. I've retired as a freelance photographer, but still shoot what I like.

Btw, I just finished doing a complete undercoating job on my 2010 2SSRS prior to racing it on the salt flats. Another wonna them "it started out as a little bitty thing..." deals. I'm just about ready to put it back together. I better hurry cuz I gotta have it on the trailer in 4 days. I'll post photos of that project in another thread.

Quick Update: In our quest to loss as much weight as possible, we've been working with Forgeline on a set 19 by 11 set-up GA1R open lug design. This is a picture we took at PRI when we first fell in love with these wheels. Still have a few details we are ironing out as far as finish and a couple of other things. For threads, we are leaning towards the Toyo R888 305 all the way around.

Love reading this thread, but question about your calipers Nathan, how do you plan to bolt them on? I have some Zo6 calipers and not sure if they will need some brackets (if they make them?) or just bolt onto the spindle.

Those look NICE btw

Edit: unless those are made for the Camaro specifically, ignore my question lol
