SLC 36 Cam's Build

Jay,

Given the tight clearances I think Cam did an admirable job. He'll need those Cats for the street I believe. So, the heat shielding is probably the best option. I'll be interested to see how Hooker Headers solves these issues in the SL-C.
 
Went to the McMaster Carr site and got the expanded Al. the SS looked nice but had 50% flow or less. this stuff had around 80%. Took 3 coats of fiberglass to get it looking OK. Then sanded and painted with epoxy. i might come back and mount tranny cooler here.

Put down 3 layers of fiberglass on the inside of the passenger door. then made a bracket and FG it in. added a few washers to tighten up the feel/long termn operation of the door. Driver side next.

BTW, i got the tiny 1/4" clevis joints form mc master carr for the dbw to be hooked to the pedal box. i left extra Al onthe bracket so the pedal can't hit the gm harness

Cam - You've been busy! I've been curious as to how the dbw and pedal assembly work together (my car has the LS3). It appears the dbw is bolted to the chassis and the clevis joints/arm connected between the accelerator pedal and the dbw arm actuate the dbw? Did you do the install or did your car come that way from RCR? Do you happen to have a picture of the entire pedal arrangement?

Your build is looking great. That's the same grill material I'm looking at using. I prefer the more open design as opposed to using the expanded type. Did you cut the vent openings? If so, any suggestions on how to get a clean, straight cut?

Regards,
Dave L

Dave; Here are a few more pics of the drive by wire in the pedal box. I like the idea of having it as one unit so if it needs to be moved, i can re-attach with the DBW. This is the way Tim did his, i copied! I'm trying to keep everything stock GM simple and not switch to a cable shifter.
I actually had RCR cut those openings but Mark at RCR said he makes a fat sharpie line and leaves the line with a thin wheel on a die grinder. then he comes back with the drum sander to take out the line. I tried it on the headlights and it work pretty well. Limit coffee intake before cutting?

I've probably got enough Al material to cover your vents. I think a 14" x 14" will cover the 3 vents? Just PM me an address...

Dave, whoops, disregard those previous pedal pics, that was earlier in the build. Here is a pic with the 3/16" flat bar mounted. I didn't weld but used five 10-32 nylocked screws. I think a gorilla could stomp on the gas without the plate coming loose. Drilling thru the pedal box SS takes a ton of cutting oil. that stuff is stout.
I've got a pic of Tims adapter plate too on this post. looks like he used the same clevis joints as the clutch/brakes. The smaller clevis joint from McMaster gave a little more room for adjustment.

Cam - Thank you for the info and the pics - very helpful. PM on the way.

Alex, similar. Check Painless and Pegasus for the parts. In-line, not necessarily at caliper, but could be. Adapters are available at the above also.
