      Well it's paying off because that motor/trans/engine cover look killer! The all black accessories looks really good. I am probably going to steal that idea

      And yeah, I'm completely rebuilding it. New bearings, rings, bolts gaskets, etc. What better way to top off a newly rebuilt motor than an overdriven supercharger!

      Got the car back from the body shop. What was supposed to take a couple weeks turned into 7 weeks. Anyway Iíve been busy putting the front subframe together and the rear IRS. Currently working on brake lines.

      Do you guys think this is ok to connect the hard lines to master like this? Or do you think I need the 360 bends for more flexibility like in the stock Camaro hard lines?

      I'd put some spiral loops into the lines.

      I've always been curious about that. I'm guessing it helps with vibrations and keeping the lines from cracking due to stress at the fittings?

      I messaged Don about the issue and he said that itís really not needed and I have enough bends in the beginning for some flexibility. He also said that the spirals allowed the factories room for adjustments because they had sloppy tolerances. Could have also been due to different masters, prop valves etc. Factory worker can just manipulate the line over a bit this way or that way.

      While trying to figure out the brake line situation I decided to start doing the sound deadening. Went down pretty easy aside for some paper cuts. Wear your gloves! I plan to use MLV next then closed cell foam as suggested on sounddeadenershowdown.com.

      To be honest I’ve never seen a pro build use the loops in the brake lines. I used to use them but stopped a while ago. Maybe Donny will chime in. He's always got some good advice.

      That is awesome! Nice work on the insulation! You will definitely have the quietest interior out of everyone here! Can't wait to hear your feedback on it.

      Thanks guys!

      Here’s the link. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Neoprene-EP...4AAOSwCKdfjgO8

      It’s really cheap considering you get over 230sq ft which is way more than enough. The whole roll weighs maybe 30lbs. It’s very easy to work with because it can be stretched in multiple directions and it comes with the glue on one side so you don’t have to deal with any messy glue. This material is 1/8” thick and that’s what’s recommended to use from soundeadenershowdown. They also recommend to double it up on the floor and firewall. This material also acts as a heat barrier according to soundeadenershowdown. At this stage the car feels totally different. The butyl layer that we all use made it sound less hollow when I slam the door. But with this material basically almost everywhere the car feels really solid. When I slam the door, all you hear is the latch closing and that’s it.

      I’m currently finishing up the Mass loaded vinyl layer and luckily saved the backing paper from the CCF to use as a template for the MLV this is making the project go much faster as you don’t need templates for the cutouts. MLV is much harder to work with because it’s very dense and bends only in one direction at a time. Also the glue I’m using HH-66 is very messy and smelly (like acetone). I’m probably getting high from it LOL.
