Hey Gotha! We made the tubes ourselves. by welding aluminum tubing we got from Speed Way. I'm surprise more people haven't replicated as its fairly simple and makes a huge difference compared to the factory rubber ones. A lot of the engine stuff is in the other thread "Project Cleaning UP The Clutter In Our Engine Bay". Let me know if I can help.
Thanks! How many hours are you in this project at this point? It is going to be so sweet when it's all done I'm excited for you! So much work I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the work you have done and are still doing now. When and if you ever have any free time I would love to have some of your parts on my ride let me know but keep up all the high end work it's so badars!

Thanks again for the props! As far as hours....too many to count, LOL. What parts were you thinking?

Justin is keeping me posted on his progress. Cradle is going to be sweet!

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.



Wow, is all I can say. By far the sickest 5th gen build I've seen! The stance of the car is exactly what I'm looking for. Would you mind sharing what modifications are need to make the 305's fit on all four and what's the offset required for your 19x11's to sit like that. Thanks in advanced.

Thanks kilo! It just getting the right wheel offset. The other consideration is strut clearance. We wnt with Forgelines. Steve has our offset. They keep it close to the chest but I'm sure they be willing to make another set, LOL.

Wow. That thing is going to be another piece of art. Although I need to get the front first to help get the weight to 50/50. Will pick up a lottery ticket on Monday.

This is absolutely incredible work you're doing here. It truly is a work of art, and probably the ultimate expression of the 5th Gen Camaro.

You've taken it farther than I would have imagined anyone would.

That's freaking DIRTY! If I had the money I'd buy that in a heart beat if it weighed 3350-3400 lbs curb.

That's a beautiful concept I hope it turns out as planned!

I'm thinking double that ... Speedsters car was off the charts... You've passed him and gone into the realm of insanity! It's all those little details few folks will ever see... (in a good way lol)

P.S. I missed the "labor" part.... yeah... triple it

Thanks guys we appreciate the props. havent had much time to update the thread as we've been pushing to get the car done.

In our quest to shed as much weight as possible, we recreated the steel front cooler brackets out of aluminum and got rid of a few pounds.

The roof weight in at approx 22 lbs. We figure we should lose another 15 lbs off the top.

First step was removing the paint to see the spot welds

Next was to drill a pilot hole

Followed by drilling out the spot welds with a special bit

all in all it wasn't that difficult.

The rest of the steps were just cleaning off the factory foam

and sanding down the stop welds smooth.

We removed the steel plates on the side of the center console. Sorry no before pictures ( there on Justins phone). Weight removal was 7.4 lbs. All told, these three mods should save us about 25 lbs total.

Made a spacer to relocate the trans mount.

The dry sump tank was being mounted on the front right wheel well. Space was a a premium as the tire was hitting the tank when clocked inward. To gain 1" of clearance between the tank and tire required notching the tank, eliminating the mounting bracket and direct mounting it the frame rail.

Finish shorting the air intake tube and mounting the oil filters.

Still need to modified the upper radiator hose and mount the breather tank for the dry sump tank. Plumbing has been a mental exercise for the dry sump tank! More on that later.
