We installed the coil overs last night, did a few other odds& ends.......now the Body guy will come to the garage and tack a few things in place (tranny tunnel) and make a few on the site measurements.........THEN, we take every thing back out and the body comes off and goes back on the rotesserie.....

SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you going to run a hood?

Something about a goat with a blower sticking out of the hood really does it for me....

That's not a GTO!

That's a streetrod with a GTO body on it! :lol:


You've got to be going crazy to want to drive it at this point. How long have you been working on it now?

2 years.....BUT if you factor out the 'waiting for parts' time.14 months (+/-) I am dying to take it for a ride! Going to the tranny shop today....after the body guys come to take some measurements, etc., for trans hump alteration.......I'm "in line" at the upholstery shop also......Eric :party:

I'm tryin.......body guys came to the garage yesterday. They took measurements to alter the fire wall, and tranny tunnel. Also to recess the seat tracks so the '06 buckets will sit properly. It was like watching two Tailors measure for a "fine suit of clothes"...NOW, I remove the engine/trans, steering column....and back to the Body shop for the mods and final rotesserie work.....while that is getting done, the chassis, and all the suspension parts come apart and get powder coated. :D:D E

The body will be BLACK and the interior will be 2006 GTO RED leather, the frame will be silver powdercoat, and the A arms, links, Etc will be Black....Everything else will be polished alum, SS, or chrome.......Hey Rick, Thanks! Eric P.S.....Early on, I thought of Black Cherry with Grey leather interior, but Black/Red has always been my favorite.
