Not much going on right now. I got my trunk area all cleaned and wiped down for paint and my battery tray. Still have to fab all that up.

I'll have to get my car on the lift and get some pictures on everything else. I did all of the work on the ground so not to many pictures on underneath/fitment pictures.

That would be great to see.

Thanks.

Haven't got the car on a lift yet, been really busy here. But, I finally get my rear calipers on. I was having a fitment issue for some reason. Quickly found out that the rotors I got sent a ways back were wrong. Swapped them out, now I can fit in a be cool with my Z32 rear calipers!



Our brake booster delete plate. Another parts list to get together.... rear brake lines will be custom.



Our new v3 Power steering set up! But, for me, I really dislike the Corvette power steering pump location and where the feed tube is located. My reservoir to pump hose will be a pain to make. I might take it all back off and weld a -10AN weldable bung to the pump for the so I can actually run a hose to it.

Hey everyone... back at it a little bit. I recently have taken everything off in the front to mess with the front fenders. As well as it is getting near the time were i'm starting my engine harness.

Then I have recently decided while looking at my car. I'll be doing a chassis harness, my own. I don't even use half of the connectors up front anymore so its time for one.






OH! I trimmed the fenders for more "clearance" lol, its still not helping.



Put some 295-30-18 Yokohama Advan tires on as well ("just for the street tire")

Thanks! I'm excited for the up coming plans with the car. Lots of caffeine to keep me focused when doing the wiring.

Should be ordering the engine harness material this up coming week!

There are a few! But first, I am turbocharging the engine now.
As this build has no real time limit. I'm going through and doing my own chassis harness.

When you say chassis harness, you mean interior body harness?

Haha I love that your turboing it. It is a iron block might as well!

Yeah, the entire chassis will be re-wired. Only the assentails will be wired back to a panel box. Mentally, this build has changed many times. Working in a performance shop and working around car's we bust out and dyno that make 800hp and me wanting to build my own car. It's a nasty mix.

So, currently removing the dash and ALLL the BS. Kinda excited to be honest!

Past midnight here, so i'm done for today! About half way done getting the interior completely cleaned out. One is to finish the floor, hope to get the seats brackets made as well (We have a seat here to mock up). Got the space now for the cage I need to make this winter.

But, I'd didn't mention that I already took the R&R'd of the engine to make the oil drain for the turbo. -10AN, pretty standard size and I think the placement is.. it'll work.











Glad I got that uglly ass chassis harness out of the way!

I'm having issues with my harness right now. New WS harness installed and now no power to the battery. Nothing works just kinda mad at it right now. I'm bad with wiring not sure what I'm doing half the time. I wish you better luck on your wiring harness.

Making sure I wasn't missing something. I'm planning on a similar build using the t56. Always willing to accept a good schooling from someone who has done it before. Thx

Yeah, I foresee trans issues to be honest. Its the cost of me replacing it is rather "cheep". If I could have found a T56 for a decent price, at the time. I wouldn't have gone and did the adapter plate/z33 trans.

Good question. It was between Haltech and this, MS3 Pro. But MS3 Pro will do everything I want plus some. I'm capable to use the Racepack with this. Which was kinda a deal breaker. And it's slightly cheaper than the competitors.

Wasting some time, tinkering around and trying to make my interior look nice? LOL. Decided to mess around with suede and wrap some of my interior.







*PS I suck at taking progress pics

I didn't have much time to take pictures while doing it. I had to move quick and lay it down. But it turned out rather nice!

The sunroof I ended up taking the entire assembly out. Taking the sunroof window out. Then was able to get to the cover. That's wrapped as well as the same material as the headliner.

Recently taking the entire chassis harness out. Both lights I simply just painted them black. Then just installed them back into there orginal places. i'll have some better pictures post of the headliner.

Yeah, did my headliner with 3M spray can. It held for a year and change. It now sags. I see Broadfield uses 3M Spray Gun which seems like a hassle.

I might try the Loctite when I fix the head liner.
