It's a wonderous thing to see our baby's shell, I stood back and admired the photos. Love that it's one piece like that, can't wait to see her all put together. This year can't move fast enough!

That was my "nevermind", but long as it's out, that's very cool! How hi up the roof line does it go? (where is the roof weld?)

I think I got it...I'll shut up now
I can't shut up..., all 3 pillars??
I heard those Japanese body men were making some exotic bends, I assumed it was the deep 1/4 panel to c-pillar bend, but then there's no weld.

These are nice pictures and all that but I'm going to reserve judgement until I can see what the thing looks like with the SHUNT installed.

1+^^^

Also think about how this will enhance the Vert!...I think I might have to seriously consider the vert now.

From what we know about the V6 and now this...The V6 vert might be the perfect match...Performance/MPG & Vert. These will sell like Hot Cakes!!!!

Sorry Maddog, you beat me to teh punch. I didn't see your post until after the page refreshed.
Ha, it's all good.
Love the pics and it does look like a very rigid structure.
Thanks for confirming the observations, garfin/Elie.
Also thanks for posting here 80Zedder.
Nice to see someone here who is actually going to be hammering this machine together.

They don't need to find Shunt. All newer cars are equipped with inside the trunk trunk release handles...so Shunt should be able to get out of the trunk all by Shunt's self.

Consider a 4-point rollbar setup for the convert. You already have the door posts, extend a nice oval shaped bar overhead, run a couple of diagonals from sill to rear .Think about it at least.
Daddy always said you can never get your monocoque too stiff.

One day I hope we really find out what Shunt is and info on the rope, btw aftermarket shunt rope and shunt in trunk stickers will be for sale just send $5 plus s & h.

I really think we should make a bumper sticker, or window cling with camaro5 and shunt in trunk on it.

A Shunt sticker and some rope hanging from the trunk on an otherwise bone stock Camaro will be the talk of the meet
