All is clear using the Camero bow-tie wing which, besides the great looks, visability was one of the benefits of using it. The original or the stock wing would have been a issues.

Troy,

Just wanted to say how much i enjoyed meeting you at Daytona.



As awesome as your car was i have to say i was more impressed by you as a person. Just a really genuine guy, and there are not to many people like that out there.

(L to R, Troyboy, Me aka exoticse, Jscott1)


Looking forward to meeting up with you and hopefully Curly again at the Choptop reunion 2 !!

Thanks for the kind words Tony, I had a blast at Daytona and It was mostly due to all of the great people that I had the chance to meet. I hope to see you and the Daytona crew at upcoming shows and events.

Hey Troy, the car looks better than great. I've been gone a while...any decisions on color that i missed? Timeline? And by the way....i think i speak for all of us here, in case it wasnt already said, that some good videos with good sound would be soooo perfect to cap off this build once completed. Heck, i'd even BUY a well made video, ala Motor Trend TV style. Have a good one!

We're putting the tips in now. The tips are a bit taller than the opening, so we're modifying the rear facia exhaust openings right now.

Pics soon.

Archie,

Where did you get the brackets for the C5 calipers? Did you made them? If so how much or where can I get some.

Thanks Art.

These are some in process pictures of the new exhaust opening. Remember that there is some filling & shaping that we have to do yet.

Here's a few pics of the new exhaust tips & remolded rear bumper exhaust openings.









Anyone who's been reading PFF for the last 6 weeks or so knows that the Perfect Union was the most photographed car at the Daytona Show.

Troy has decided to delay his picking up of his car at our place until the Dells Show is over. Which leads me to announce here that Troy & his wife will be driving in to attend the Dells Show & we will be showing The Perfect Union at that show too.

The interior will not be finished because Curley has someone else that's going to do the interior. He also has someone else doing the bigger brakes & suspension. But the exterior of the car will be presentable. Curley plans to have some more tweeking to the exterior of the car after the Dells show & before he picks it up in September at the Chop Top Reunion.

Hey, cool. You used the ones similar to those. They look good. I didn't realize the size would be off that much from the opening, but it looks like Archie & crew did a great job of making the tips look like they belong there.

Hey, that sounds just like it sounded when I recorded it today.

I recorded it on my digital camera & it came out pretty good.

I guess I gotta figure out how to post videos up on youtube so I can do this more often.

If I can figure out how to post the videos, Then I'll have to post some videos of the test drives.

Just a little update for those that care.

We put the engine in this car more than a year ago. We've had it running for a long time & have moved it in & out of the shop many times. I even drove the car around a little at the Daytona Show.

We never had a chance to really start doing the official test driving of the car, because the body has always been in some state of transition from ugly duckling to what we have today.

But today was the day, we finally started doing the official test driving today. Got in about 20 miles & all is right with the world.

It's all good.

We got the new A/C compressor today & installed it & it works fine.

I took it for an extended ride today & it feels good. Got the guys working tomorrow to get ready for the Dell's weekend.

The only thing, left to do on that car is to put some screens in the vents/scoops where you want them.

Give me a call or drop me an email on that subject as soon as you can.
