Is this your kit or did you buy it? I'm looking to box the frame of my 65 chevelle. What did you do with the tranny cross member? Thanks

Great pic's, never seen so many '64 GTO's in one place before.

Also interested in the mounting location of the tranny crossmember. Will it be original or fabbed?

I am using a custom fabbed crossmember from lemons headers , but I include the brackets to use your stock one after some modifications. basicily you chop the ends off to shorten it and then it bolts to the new brackets.
we have installed 3 so far, and seen a drop fropm 1.77 to 1.65 in the 60 ft, with no other changes ( 489 bbc,tko,drag radial) that was with no cage. only adds approx 8 lbs. everything is lazer cut 12 gauge .shoot me an e-mail, for my number with any other questions. Doug yuk5664@comcast.net

Do you have any pics of your tranny crossmember and how it mounts? What are you charging for the kit?

ok some pics are now on photobucket (under the above link) of the crossmember.you can see where you need to cut the stock piece or purchase a aftermarket one like i have.
some pro touring people have asked for boxing along the fuel tank, so that is now also available , and we will have some bracing for the lower control arm mounts real soon.
also the solid body mounts will be available with and without the the supplemental mount as well as rad support bushings. thanks again ,Doug

put the 68 / 72 kits in front of the gbody guys. I have no reason other than the fact that im in the 68/72 crowd and sure seems like I meet a lot of us looking for the ease of something like this and besides G follows A so I say stick to the alphabet and go in order.
