Pics of the gutted interior. This will be going under the knife for some weight loss, removed all unnecessary items, and lots of metal

All the interior has been gutted and removed and very little will be going back in. The Cage is in, full NASA spec with fire suppression system, powder coated the cage red and the interior matte black.

Thanks for information and the update! It turns out I do have their number on my lists of contacts for mods for my Camaro. Your car is going to be the envy of many.

I am currently planning on running stock brakes and suspension. I am hoping that appall he marketing hat Chevy did was more than just fluff and he car can be competitive. The Car was built as a non ac car and also removed the heater core.

Here's a pic of the lucky day I got the car on Christmas morning. My wife was nice enough to pull some strings with Santa.

Just under a hundred miles on the log before taking to get track prepped. I kinda wish I would have done the break in period in the comfy seats.
