Hi Phil, absolutely love your build. I'm trying to get some estimates on build a chassis exactly like yours. I also have a ls1 t56 sitting in the garage. I was saving it for a cobra replica until I realized I don't fit well inside one. Plus I want a rollcage for safety, so I really like your approach. Any chance you've got measurements or plans that I could give a shop for a quote?

Somewhere in my build (page 4?), I have the dimensions ,but the plans where just a sketch on some graph paper. Built the cage and basic frame .Then a fair bit of mockup with the bits I had to figure out the rest. Feel free to copy from the pictures.

I know this is an old thread but what rear spindles did you use?

Great build!

Just stumled upon this, and it is close to what I am planning to do. LS, roll cage, etc. I definitely appreciate all the details and pics! :cheers:

So how much does it weight in the end, with all the body work etc. equipped?
How much do you think you could get less if you really try?
