Hey Casey, here is an update on the tubular rear cradle:

As you can see the jig has been fabricated. The 1st thing Craig had to do was to machine plastic bushings to mock up the jig. The factory bushing had to must play to work. The cradle will be solid mounted but he still needed to make bushing to take measurements for the pick up points.

Stay tune as we will be updating the progress. Our cradle should be done by the end of March.

RJ I feel you Brotha, we tracking, LOL. Actually thats the plan. Were replacing the all the body panels with the Z/28 pieces we are making out of carbon. The coolers look so cool (punt intended) that we are exploring different ideas for the lower grill to keep the cooler exposed.

You could use a fine mesh for the lower grille.

Thought I would post the long overdue update on the roll cage. It is almost done. Just needs some door bars and B-pillar gussets! Pics are crappy cell phone, but nonetheless...



We wanted to do dimples in the a-pillar gussets, but with how tight we went, they would be very small dimples, so we went without.



Added a diagonal this time around



I am happy to report that there are NO head clearance issues on v2.0. In fact, it is far enough from the driver head to where we are comfortable with the cage during street driving. The a-pillar bar is about as tight as it will possibly go without resorting to an external roll cage, LOL.



Also added a cross bar in the back to increase torsional stiffness of the chassis. It is already solid as is, but now its mo-betta



Rear down bar mounted right above suspension mounting point, just like last time.
