Like being back in school, learning from a master. And I have a lot to learn. Thank you for the updates. Loved seeing your work at Gilbertsville, meeting you and learning from you.

sean, james, steven and justin, thank you.  i appreciate your kind thoughts.

 

i'm in the process of trying to make a fiberglass seat tub for the camaro. i'm not really a fiberglas expert so i'm taking my time. maybe in a day or two i'll have a finished product.  for now i put the chassis on some blocks so i could level the body on the chassis.

i put the engine into the chassis at the correct location and then put the nose on the car to check the clearance of the valve covers to the hood. the engine is a pretty close representation of a 5.2 bore space engine. it is way bigger than a factory big block. also making sure the body has the appropriate "bow" in the hood. if you lookclosely you'll see there is about 1/32 or so clearance. at the front of the valve cover. all is good.
