I was in Java's neighborhood yesterday while traveling through Nashville, TN. Chris was nice enough to stop what he was doing and spend a few minutes with me at his shop. I wanted to see the 9614 Firebird. The last time I saw this car it was a caged uni-body car.  I ended up buying the quick change out of. I can tell you first hand the workmanship is as good as it gets.

Thanks Chris.

I know alot of the pics don't work anymore so here is the link to the album on my shop facebook page. Don't be afraid old timers Smiley  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.486569108119655.1073741841.411780185598548&type=3


 Here is the latest progress. We initially managed to package some brakes within the front wheels and it was pretty tight. Using an 11"  wilwood rear rotor meant for an integrated parking brake and Wilwood GP320 calipers, it all fit with a bit of clearancing to the edges of the calipers. These are small 4 piston calipers that are basically motorcycle calipers with a spacer in them for a wider rotor. The pads are small and thin. My initial thought was that one stop from a fast mile pass would use up the pads so Daryl wanted to add another pair of calipers. The first pair used the stock coleman caliper bracket with spacers to bolt them to the upright. For the second pair we again used the stock coleman brackets and I machined some lugs for them to bolt to, fixtured that all up and welded the lugs to the uprights. It was fun talking to Wilwood about this setup. When they asked about vehicle weight, speed and stopping distance and I said 6000lbs, 280mph and less than 1 mile to stop, they were definitely surprised. Not to worry I said, we have 2 parachutes!!

So I've been asked to push hard on finishing my portion of the build so stay tuned for more updates in the next couple months. Daryl is hoping to make speedweek!!! 2016!!! Yikes!!  Here is the album link. Most recent work is at the bottom. I can't imbed pictures right now so feel free to imbed any pics you want. We just took off the body to finish weld the cage and add more tubes and gussets. Please chime in on any ideas for bars you think I should add. As of now I will be adding a diagonal in the main hoop behind the driver and also tubes from the a pillar junction with the roof bars down through the door bars and on to the frame rails. Gussets will be tube gussets at major junctions.

Thanks! Yeah the body is going back on soon but I still have a rear wing and tubs to make and a nose to mount. Not to mention a fuel tank, radiator in a tank, ice tank etc... Then our other buddy is making the headers, exhaust and intercooler plumbing. All major components that aren't to be fabbed are in place or ready to be. But yikes no doubt!!

Joe,
It is not hard to look at a build like yours and nit pick it for small things that we all may have done slightly different but on your build it is impossible to find anything that is not well engineered and masterfully fabricated. As always nice work and can't wait to see it at the salt.
