      69 Camaro Gets some Upgrades!

      The green Machine is getting some upgrades in a BIG way. Specifically, I will be swapping out the sub-frame to a DSE piece. The rear end will be getting the DSE treatment as well with a new Quadralink set up. Bigger Bear brakes and some new Forgelines. Work is about to begin!! Name:  Camaro 8.jpg

      Began the process of disassembly (interior), to make way for the DSE harware. Let the cutting/welding begin!

      I wish I had made pump access and room for the exhaust. It's looking good.

      Thanks for the input...I'm pretty stoked to get this back on the road. The wheels are 04-06 GTO spares...great for rolling the car around shop.

      Made some more progress on getting the LT4 mounted in the DSE subframe. Using the Holley engine / trans mounts...seems to fit well. It does put the motor in a rearward position though. Next up, firewall and trans tunnel tweeking.Name:  mounts .jpg
