Ya, I have the molds to build a one piece front end for chevy II and transmission cover and wheel tubs and other flat panels. Ill have to build a mold for the rear floor cover. Im going to add some kevlar and S glass into the rear tubs to protect driver in case of tire failure and to keep the stones from going through the carbon.
More pics to come this week, so stay tuned....

Sorry for the delay guys but I was on holidays with my family for awhile, any way back to work. Picked up the car from storage last night and spent all day today disassembling and cutting and hacking to prepare body for new chassis. lots more cutting left to do but its coming...
Other pics are of rear tires with brand new centerline Telstars and full frame welded up.
More to come soon

Little more progress . Setting ride height. What you guys, think should I go lower? Keep in mind this is a street car. Right now the rocker is 6.25" at the front and 7.25" at the rear wheel opening
Any input on the project will be considered and appreciated

I like the stance at that height

Decided to go 1.5" lower in the front and 1" at the back of the rocker.
should look like a 1990s prostock car running down the freeway haha
set the one piece fiberglass plug on to get a better look at stance. will be used for mock up until i have the time to pull a Carbon one out of the mold

Sorry for the delay, I have been busy with getting a few small job cleaned up around my shop and was doing some drag racing with my little 96 S10 5.3L.
I have a treat to show you guys of all the rearend components that came in from Mark Williams Enterprises the other day. Not a bad way at spending 4800 bucks (skidoo trailer not included). Should be some good progress starting on the rearend build next week. I'll post the pics as I go
Thanks for watching

Oh I certainly agree, sometimes budget or true necessity don't warrant such high end components but there is NO arguing the quality.

I look forward to seeing more pics as it comes along. :usa:

I have no idea if you can upload to here from your phone. But if you have a photobucket account you can upload from your phone to there. Then just use the web on your phone to post here.
