Chuck, .38 per side. I'm assuming the DSE drop spindles won't change the track width. For the front Aero 6 with 14" rotors and for the rear Superlite 4R with 12.88 rotors. I had them swap out the calipers from what they show online to configure it for a manual brake setup. I received the rear setup earlier this week and hopefully will get the fronts along with the MC/prop valve kit before long. I ended up going with Wilwood because the appear to need the least amount of clearance for the caliper from the wheel mounting surface. Originally I was going to use the C6 brakes from Kore3 but noticed how much clearance they needed for the caliper. Also Wilwood appears to make a good product based on the posts I read and in looking at the rear set. I must admit Baer's look to be a work of art if I compare some of the Willwod pieces to the Baer pics. Especially the backing plate for the e-brake.

Originally I was thinking about hydroboosting (even bought and rebuilt an Astro van hydroboost unit and an aluminum mounting plate - will probably end of selling them) but then decided to go with manual brakes after reading quite a few posts on the topic.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

I got the body and parts from the media blaster on Friday. Overall it wasn't too bad since most of the spots we already knew about. There were a few surprises though. We thought the bottom windshied channel looked pretty good but I'll end up replacing it. Also after looking at the trunk pan I think we'll end up putting a new one in since I'll have the inner wheel wells the mini tub inners. At times it's a bit of a tough call whether to patch or replace since most of the parts don't look too bad.

We put some metal prep on and epoxy primed all the parts to keep them from rusting. The metal prep was interesting because it almost look like it flash rusts.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Body doesn't look that bad. I love 67's. Keep up the progress.
I use a manual booster on my race truck. It slows me down just fine plus I don't have any clutter. I'll end up doing the same on my 65 build.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Hey Ted, don't cut yourself short. Your build is bad ass and from what I can see, I'm not doing anything you couldn't do
I'm going home for a week this Friday so, I'll get to see my 67. (This makes me happy)
I do a lot of skim reading so I may have missed it.. What are you doing for the rear and shocks?

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Mike for the rear I have a 67 12 bolt, eaton posi, 3.42 gears, and strange axles (yeah they're c clips - probably should have changed that). When I spoke with Tony at ABC performance he indicated that a Ford 9 inch has the pinion lower which helps for a lowered car.

For shocks, I'm using DSE double adjustable coil overs. We're trying to work out the upper mounts.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Yep.. You would be surprised how much that 1" helps with the trans tunnel.
Should be really nice with those parts.
I'm running the Viking DA's.. Going to do a 1-1/4" crossbar between the frame rails with an anti roll bar incorporated into the rear that ties to the frame rails.
I like the direction your going with this project. I keep watching for updates

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Some progress finally. Got the upper coil over mounts worked out and started mocking up the rear end. Tomorrow I should get the front suspension mocked up less the steering. I still need to order the drag link, tie rod ends, and idler arm. I just had to sit the tires in place to get a peek. Once I get the body back on I'll work out the backspacing for the wheels. The good thing about this taking awhile is Holley is in the process of making engine mounts like I was planning. I purchased the camaro clam shell engine mounts a few years back.

Hat tip to Mike McMasters on the lower coil over brackets.

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

Is that a convertible frame? Nice work, my 67 is in the same state as yours. That is some real meat on the back! Looks mean.

I guess I'd answer it's kind of a convertible frame. I bought an El Camino frame that had some light damage in the LH torque box so we cut out the inner boxing from that frame and welded it into the car's original frame. I figure it has to be as strong as the FX Boxing kit. The back has ABC performance boxing plates. It's alot more rigid than what I started with.

Nice progress! Keep it up.

This probably not quite what you hoping for but here's a pic of it in the box. I bought a Magnacharger TVS2300 kit for a 2010 -2013 Camaro. I'll need to work out the belt length since I'm using the Corvette accessory drive setup to clear the steering box. To space the accessory drive out to match the harmonic balancer, I'm using a Holley spacer from their kit. I'm planning on using the truck lower mount A/C brackets so I'll need to make sure that will clear the suspension cross member. Todd over at Hooker is saying with their new engine mounts this shouldn't be a problem.

I also bought a set of GMPP ported LS9 heads with the titanium intake valves to go with this and am looking at putting in a Jannety Racing smooth idle blower cam. On one Camaro they were pulling 697HP at the rear wheels. Lookout Dodge Hellcats!!!

Re: 67 L99 4L80 Project

I've seen a couple of other builds using the same set up and from the other pics I've seen it doesn't look like hood clearance is a problem.
