Hi 496,
I built my own brackets for the rear end. the wheel base ended up 26 5/8 inches longer than the original Corvette so I had to extend the stabilizer which is the rear transmission mount. The front clip was cut at the point where the frames matched and then bolted and welded it in place. I moved the front wheel center line back 1 1/2 inches because it looked better in the wheel wells and had no problem with tire to fender rub. building the new firewall bump was the biggest chore.

YES. that wood on the outside of the box (red mahogany)
