Recommended Posts

glad to hear your tranny woes are behind you.... now , not to be a pest or anything but did you happen to get any pics of the front of your car, there are a couple of us waiting to see them as an example for what to do to our's.... any help anyone can give would be appreciated. Even just talking us through it .... or I will have to just ripping and tearing (according to the rules, of course) ..... at Willow my oil temp was too high .... and without an opening I have no place to put an oil cooler.... any suggestions? anyone!

 

Any help on a rear spoiler would also be greatly appreciated, though I doubt I can get it done before Sears.

Bud, I got some feedback from Alan Blaine that my front openings were not so good, so I did not take any photos for ya. I suggest you contact Alan Blaine for some input. I am plugging him below because he is very qualified. He did the roll cage repair and NASCAR door bars for me to boot - they get him lots of compliments. I also have one of his tire racks on my trailer. Here's his info:

 

My specialty is TIG welding and other metal (steel/aluminum/stainless steel) cutting/forming/fabrication. I've designed/built/modified street and

roadrace cages in 1st/3rd/4th gen F-bod, C4, RX-7. I am developing

fiberglass and carbon fiber composite molding capability.

 

Stuff I can do:

header prep

WBO2 bungs in headers/Ypipe

full custom exhaust system

oilpan modifications

custom welded street rollbar - RR track or drag

custom welded race cage

upgrade/modifying existing cage

race seat installation

fire system installation

wheel stud installation

oil cooler installation

fuel cell installation

other race car prep

aftermarket brake system installation

SFC, LCA bracket installation

9" / 12bolt installation

shocks/springs/STB/PH/swaybar/TQ arm installation

custom cold air intake

molded composite TTop replacement panels and hoods

custom built trailer tire rack

trailer ramps, other trailer mods

Koni wrench

C5 harness bar (tba)

sword repair

 

Regards,

Alan

Thanks for the info.... He might be aways out of my area though.... but I will give him a call. I didn't see your opening at Willow, but it seems to me that any air flow within the rules and not distrubing the aero would surely be better than what I've got....None! .... firebirds are different in the frontend than the camaros ... I think they have it a little easier. Open and protected seem to be the two most inportant things along with a tow hook and as little lifting as possible. I will diffenitely give him a call. Robert Davis helps Mike Ellison and I alot down here maybe I will talk to him also. Robert never ran CMC but is now running Spec Miata as he just sold his ASC car. Seems like a lot of people are going to Spec Miata .... Money talks. Thanks anyway, but I still wish I had a picture of yours.

Bud - let me know what your e-mail is and I'll send you a photo I just took right after getting a bit closer with the right set-up on the 'Bird front end.
