This is the officially not set in stone latest schedule...

I will be arriving at Coreys shop sometime mid to late morning Monday, and Brent has graciously offer to help me start stripping the guts out of Brandi for the cage install...I'm thinking first will be the main cage, get it in, located, checked and re checked, then weld it down... Next will be locating the door bar bases, and then move on to the Halo and the forward downpipes... They attach to the same plate as the door bars... I figure if things go well and Corey doesn't get too tied up, we will be able to finish the welding and fitting on Tuesday, and then put the car back together... Fingers crossed... There is quite a bit of welding to go and some of it will be really close to the headliner... We'll tack it in with a mig machine where that's convenient, and the balance of the welding will be Tig welded... Lots cleaner and a better weld.... Corey will have to be a contortionist for some of this... I'll make a decision then on the rear seat delete... I'll probably leave it for now, and design something to fill in/replace the back seat... no one will be riding back there anyway... and I'm hoping to lose 75 + lbs back there... The cage is adding about 190 lbs, so I'm on a weight loss hunt...

Obviously this is subject to change, depending on the emergencies that crop up over the weekend, but thats the latest...

Unfortunately no plan last past the first 5 minutes of battle...

It'll happen, I've learned some patience on this build... and then there is the Speedster, he qualifies for SaintHood with his level of patience...

I've seen your hammer... It won't fit in the car... Headed out in an hour to get the hardware, stop in to say hey at the shop, visit the parental units for a bit, and then to the Friday night show at Womack Chevrolet...

lol, hey Robert, i had the awesome pleasure of not only helping with your plate, but ever better was parking next to COTW.
and about the dog, i saw that little dog walk between our cars and thought, that little turd better not piss on my tire, then i saw you talking with mike, and thought, let me screw with Robert.
you should have seen the look on your face when i said that the dog just pissed on your tire,, your were like, your head spun like the exorcist . i thought i was going to see a little dog fly across the field, sorry, couldnt resist. im really working on my maturity.

Cant wait to hear your thoughts on the 4L80E tranny... I'm going to stick with the 6060 but that's intriguing...

Well, since there were several crisis items pop up over the weekend, I helped Corey a bit around the shp today but we didn't get started on the cage...

Tuesday morning, it is our intention to start on it... We could/would have started on it this afternoon late, but my son had left to go to his Baseball teams practice and that would have left me no way home... so, I helped finish up a Corvette...

Tuesday hopefully will be the day.... If we get started on it, I'll take pics along the way and post em up when I get home...
