Jim is getting ready to mate the body to the new pan, so here's a few pics:



Steering box:


Innovate Motorsports O2 sensor and lambda feed:


Ignition:


Line lock:


Staging brake:


Kill switch:


Trans:


Turbo Jim drills his own rotors. Handy guy!




This is cool. The body is off it's original pan, and when the body gasket was removed, you can see the original paint.
Note the clean threads in the bolt holes. This is a 50 year old car!

The body will stay as is. I plan to do a couple of things to the firewall and up front but thats it. Some things are just too cool to paint....... ;)

THAT THING IS INSANE!!!!!!! How does a staging break work?? Different than line lock obviously, is it to preload the clutch at the line?

Hey Chris, Give me a call at the shop and I can explain in more detail what would work best for you. Yes, the staging break is for loading the drivetrain and building boost on the line. Thanks Matt, for the interest in the car. TJ

jim if you are using the aux box or the rpm conector for additional data inputs watch where you run the LM1 components and wiring for it.i've had to relocate my wiring and added surge absorbers and a filter capaciter to help eliminate stray voltages showing up on my recorderd data for various components.
this will give some part #'s and ideas

Hey Dave , Thank-u for the kind words and the interest in the car. I will be using Mega-squirt 3.0 v2 for the engine management. Sorry I took so long to reply but we have been having problems with the site. I just mounted the brain and relay board in the car yesterday. I want to get a little more done and then I will do another update. I am waiting on wheels (8 week build time) and a few other things and then the pan should be ready for the body. I have to narrow the axles and make a custom length shift rod ect. ect. The body should go on in jan. Thanks TJ

I luv u Rusty.... :wub:  Yes, old clamtooth should have a rolling pan by this weekend! I am still waiting for my back rims..(now thats painful) I will do a update as soon as I get the parts installed (few days). Back rims could still be 2 weeks so I am going to have to find something in a chevy bolt pattern to put on the back so I can roll it around. I have a certain black oval coming in at the end of the month, (few days) to finally be finished off. We will also have to get some pics of that car up on the site...2332, Berg 52's......killer!  I hope The Klam doesn't mind sharing his cave........ :o  :lol:
