Q: Alright. So what are the modifications planned?
A lot of these build start of with a snappy digital rendering of how the car will look, with impossibly tinted windows, ride height down in the weeds, and a big long list like:
245 front, 345 rear tires
In this case, the rules listed below define what I’ll be doing. Distilling it down, the parts list will be something like:
Springs (all stock types in stock locations), shocks, panhard rod, roll bar, subframe connectors (bolt-in), wheels (9″ max width), tires (265 max width, 140+ treadwear), bushings (non-metal), brakes, limited slip, seats, steering wheel, headers, baffled oil pan, exhaust. With our camber kit allowance I can do a custom front upper or lower control arm, but not both.
In the process the car will essentially undergo a full restoration so a lot of things will be cleaned, painted, powdercoated, or CAD plated, but I don’t consider that part modification really.
Everything else will be stock, including the motor internals, interior, body, etc. The car will basically become a ’67 Z28 clone in the process so it’ll be put together as an ideally optioned ’67 as it goes with a 302, M21, 3.73 12-bolt rear, etc.
I will be surprised if I am actually able to leverage many off-the-shelf performance parts in the build. Most of the things available for these cars either aren’t legal for my chosen class, or they aren’t ideal for my purposes.
