            • I suppose I should occasionally show the bit of leg-work I do
              under the stack is a printout from Mitchells that gives the data points to align a C5 Corvette

              then I needed to measure and translate the numbers to make a drawing to install the new cradle and suspension
              that is what the paper on the left then right are.... dimensions
              as an aside, in searching for the drawings, I found there is a shop that installs the C5 stuff on C3s using the cradle like I'm doing.... my install will have a bit more detail than theirs did.... nice to know it's doable, though.

              • as we all know, stock is WAY too reliable for my tastes.... so we remove this


                GM really should have put them on better... they just fell off



                a bit of centering


                all it needs to do is go straight up 5"


                anyone needs a new brake system...

                    • a bit done... spent most of the day with Buick....

                      time to clear the space


                      I'll need to build new structure to support the fiberglass... but there is space


                      roughly in place.... it needs to move up 2 1/2"



                      of course, that means removing the cross member


                      tomorrow I'll build support structure for the frame - most likely that means building some kind of front roll cage then attaching the body to it...
