If it was easy to do it would'nt be worth doing. In my if it was easy to do it wouldn't be worth doing. IMO. I enjoy the project as much if not more than the result

all rough cutting done....time to start construction on the rear sub frame / tube chassis........ mini tubs shouldn't be necessary. there wont really be any rear wheel wells.....or trunk floor for that matter........ so u can almost go as wide as the trailing arms will allow......but i will most likely be sticking with the stock z28 wheels to stay true to theme....more to come!!!!!!!!

Stock 4th-gens can fit 315s, but I'm sure that will change with a Beretta body...

I am glad your going the right wheel drive....

The guys at West Coast Customs have cut up several 04-06 GTO's and put them under first gen Camaro bodies.

Kept the firewall - floor pan and rear axle assembly.

I know they have had to shorten the floor pan before from front to rear - but haven't seen anyone shorten it side to side.

Keep up the good work!
