I finally made some progress...... Pics updated 11-27-08

I got a block and trans in there yesterday. I finally got to use those damn motor mounts I bought from Damon a few years ago.

Once I get the trans mount in there and get the engine height figured out I'll make motor and mid plate slider/mounts. It's been a while since I've worked on the car. I'm looking forward to working alot on it this winter. I finally insulated the garage so i could do just this! Hopefully I can make it to the Bash in '08 with a running race car.

Kim, The tunnel was already out when I bought the car. The previous owner removed it. I cut the old cage out since it wasn't up to passing the rules either. It'll be getting a full cage bumper to bumper. I've got most of the tubing to do it just need a little more for the sfc's and dash bar, etc...

That's a C4 too. I had to beat the firewall some to get it to clear the bell bolts already. Since the tunnel is out I'm planning to get the engine as far back as she'll go before the heads hit the firewall.

The old one is just hanging there. I just stuck the new on in there not too long ago. I'm headed out to the garage now to remove the old one now.




Thanks for the compliments and wish me luck. I'm going to need it...........

Got a little done this week. I cut out the floor on top of the front subframes from the firewall to the front seat mount. Tomorrow it goes on stands, gets leveled out and gets the floor cut out from the seat mount to the backhalf in preparation for the frame connectors and cage.









Hopefully tomorrow I'll get around to making some subframe connectors from this. They'l be 2x2 from the firewall to the seat mount then 2x3 to the rear 2x3 crossmember.

justintx75,

That's a good one! I wouldn't have figured that one out on my own.


Jon,

The pics I'd really like to see are of the a-pillar to halo connection. I think I got the rest of it figured out.

It'll be awhile before I do the tunnel. I plan to use some 3/4" round tubing to frame it and then some sheetmetal to make the sides. I also plan to fit it under the factory console that came with the car.

My last car had the subframes connectors in the floor like that. It ended up that the entire connector front to back was inside the car. It was hardly noticeable from underneath. It's a clean way to do it.

I plan to keep this thread updated with pics.
