Jeff,

I cannot see the photos from my work laptop due to corporate issues but, just a thought that the windshield frame needs to be cut down to enable the much needed gasket at the top. I did not do this and only realized that there actually was a gasket until my  car was assembled & driving in the rain...  Now, I always have to drive with a towel on my lap....

Thanks, Jay

I have the gaskets and will be trial fitting before I call the job done.  I have not drilled the holes in the face of the frame yet for that reason.

Also, I will be avoiding driving in the rain as much as possible with an open engine compartment!

Cool car.  I'm shooting for a channeled body on mine and the frame is double z'ed

So here are some recent photos. Body is going to come up a bit, mostly in the back, and the grill shell will not be angled. Front track width is 60" to the center of the tires, 70" to the outside. Rear width is 66 to center 76 to the outside and the overall wheelbase is 100". I've used the factory sway bars off the 89 corvette suspension donor and added coil overs with progressive rate springs all around. In the rear I've narrowed the rear cradle to fit inside the frame rails and added adjustable track rods. I'll spend the next few weeks getting the floor done before blowing everything apart for final welding, adjustment and painting.
