Best of your vids to date.
The owner of that shop participating in the video really improves the overall value of this build.
Couple notes from a fellow builder;
The nose snubber on the body needs to be removed.
The original body shims should have been documented and replicated. These aftermarket chassis are fixture built and the mounts are within tolerances that meet the OEM on its original day of construction. The shims used on original assembly took up the tolerances that were due to the inaccuracies of the body construction, therefore if you replace shims in the original positions to the same heights as the originals you should find the body and chassis marry up very closely.
As far as cutting the pinch-weld flange at the firewall/tunnel joint. Folding it over is a better way to go as it will retain the integrity and resistance to flex that the original flange provided.
Are you going to apply an undercoating or sound deadener like a bed liner to the under-body and wheel-wells. ( We do this and it really helps make the car have a more solid and isolated feel on the road. )
Again, this was your best Video of this build yet. I am having a great time following it.
Thanks so much @Robert Haas
!! Did you like the intro & titles I used?? I don't want to over-produce them.
Yeah... Aaron is awesome!! I met him on the CPP Week to Wicked 55 build years ago and we've been friends ever since. I'm glad I met him - he's a great guy and he does amazing work. He knows Danchuk part numbers by heart!!
The original body shims were long gone so there was no way to document and replicate them unfortunately. And we didn't have to cut the firewall at all - Aaron just repainted it - it looks amazing!! I texted my buddy Cotten a picture of the firewall and he replied: "Sad that the firewall has a better paint job than the rest."
There's already Dynamat covering the floor of the car. I'll ask Aaron about doing the wheel wells - thanks!!
Thanks again for the feedback and the support!!
I really appreciate it!!
