I should start a build thread so i can have a place to post updates.
I built the car in originally 2010 and have been replacing every component twice ever since.
the original build.
I picked up a 1999 with 250kmiles. The guy I boutght it from said it has a blown motor, but I think it was just Miata tick. Ether way a good platform for a v8 build.
Trans is a Tremec t-56 for a Camaro and a sfi bell housing.
1997 corvette LS1
the fisrt seat i used was a FX1. i hated this seat. butt would go numb after an hour. it retuned to being a video game chair in 2012
the first dash. all autometer
huge mess. just start tearing everything out.
Got all that useless everything out of there.
Dif parts for the 8.8 are stupid cheap. this lsd was only 120 bucks.
I cheated and went the easy way out with a new harness.
the most tedious job in the world..
seem welding. the glue goes everywhere. i found the best way to get rid of it was with a propane torch. and a wire brush.
more of my fantastic welding.. i'm much better now.
good win 11: bbk. word of warning the porter-fields that come with this are not track ready... i burned them up instantly at autobahn raceway.
i went with stance at first.. you know a fantastic idea. :(
trusty 15x9 6ul
and the r1r's. still my favorite rain tire.
I took a brake from the build to go race my 1.6l, and won these guys. 2 races 2 first place victories, i couldn't be happier with the outcome. thanks to WCMC for putting on the event.
This car had 250,00 miles on it when i got it. and the floor pans look new.
cover the welding
textured paint... the trick to painting un even surfaces.
