LOL, we thinks we are going to put any panels on so that folks could see all the mechanical work going into it.

Here are a few


We redid the shock towers an second time. We were concern since the car is going to be seeing track duty the skim coat would crack under load. So we removed it and welded all the seem to give it added strength. Sorry no pictures of the process but here they are after skimming them. A little smoother look as we dd away with the seem line.

Skim coated all the spot welds that were left after removing the L brace on each side. Half of the trans tunnel will be exposed metal and the other half we'll be covered in the flooring material we are using.

The rear section is going to mimic the engine bay. So are leaving it in metal. The divider will be simular to the firewall. The give it a clean look we are welding all the holes in the interior quarters. Welded 40 plus holes so far and have about another 40 to go. Made a little filler panel to fill in the factory recess. It will get powder coated anthracite with exposed bolts. similar to the panels in the engine bay on each side of the shock towers.

Also skim coated all the spot welded on the rear floor for a cleaner look.

Well guys, I think you are going to have to wait, LOL. It is the same senerio as last year, we are stuck in paint. We have to repaint the whole car including the gray we did last week. So we not going to push it and just bow out. The car will get done when it gets done. We already told Derale to find another car.

Doesn't there come a point in time where you have to finalize a design? I love coming to this thread and seeing the progress but want to see it complete. Starting to become the never ending project.

Ah man, you guys have to go to SEMA, I think this will be the only time in my life that I will get to attend the show. I wanted to see your car so bad.

Sorry let you guys down. We wanted to get there as much as anybody! We took the summer off from school to make sure the car got finished. Last week we painted the underside and engine bay. We didn't put enough flatting agent in the clear came out glossy. No big deal, we were just going to repaint it. Next Murphy hit us with both rear quarter panels getting ding which meant we would have to repaint them. Something we weren't planning on doing. No big deal but when we don't paint cars. Which means we have to depend on others. Unfortunately "others" schedule aren't in sink with our time line. Last year we pushed to get it there and spend $7,500 on a paint job just to have to redo it again this year. Its too much emotional drain and we aren't going to push it just to get it done. We already learned that lesson once. It sucks big time as we feel we could had had a chance to get a GM design award and gotten perhaps an invite to the Optima but it is what it is.

The car will get finish and we will beat the crap out of it tracking it.

Anyways we have been busy and haven't had a chance to update the thread much or even answer PM's .

The rear cradle is done.

Justin flew back from being at Penske in PA were he assembled the racing struts for G5.R. These are the same shock on the Z28R. Interesting the engineers at Penske said that G5.R should have more grip the Z28R race cars.

It's alright guys, we are still here supporting and cheering you on. We are all living through you on this build. It is hard, draining, but when it's gets tough, is when you guys get good. It will get done, when it's ready to get done. We are all here for the ride, and to dream about having a car like that, in our own garage.

Keep pushing.

Sema is all what it's cracked up to be so don't worry about it.

I've done 3 Sema cars and after last year it will be my last. The cost of getting it there and the $2,000 worth of damage to my car made me rethink the entire thing.

I am certain we will see it at one of the shows in the near future.

Yeah, don't worry about it, I just wanted to see your sweet car in person. I don't know how stringent GM is on their awards, and I don't know what other cars are going to be out there at the show, but I think that your car will kill the competition when you do bring it out. Keep up the great work. I look forward to be amazed by you guys for another year.

Thank guys, we appreciate the words of encouragement. We are thinking of painting the engine bay and underside in white instead of the gun metal. Thinking it will give more contrast instead of of having 50 shades of gray, LOL. We should be shooting it again on Saturday.

Just though I post for fun some of the work thats gone into the rear seating area.

There's over a 100 hours of in this area alone. Every spot weld and been made smooth. There's so much work that you wont know was done unless you could see two cars side by side. Lets just say this is really clean.

The red circles give somewhat of an idea of all the holes that have been deleted.

Take your time and when the car is finished haul it to a show. I am sure there are plenty of shows in your neck of he woods.
