Pulled motor out to remove bell housing and adapter. Going to send back to Renegade, since Carl is making the toque tube bolt on to stock bell housing, which came with the trans I purchase.
I'd hold on to those until you get my Torque tube for your car. I just got another pair of lengthened TTubes in here, one of these is yours. It is easy to see how much longer they are compared to the stock corvette TTube which is laying beside them.

But, hang on to those Renegade parts just a little longer before you send them back. I know we do not need the steel adapter they sent you, but that aluminum adapter for your throw-out bearing might still prove useful.

TT's look great . I will hold on to the Renegade parts until we figure this out. By any chance do you still have all the mock up parts that Renegade sent to you?

I do not. Those have been returned to renegade about a month ago. But I have many pictures if you need something, let me know.

I will have your shifter box mounted in the correct position atop of the Torque Tube before it ships.

Just a reminder if it makes a difference, I purchased the Short Shifter for the C05 Z06

The least I can do since others have already paved the way for people like myself.

I bought some SS headers for another LS3 motor that I am putting twin turbos on and liked them so much I installed on the 928 LS3. The headers stick out from the side of motor a bit more than stock, but I think there is plenty of room in the engine compartment.

Tach welded in some supports where I cut the sun roof frame out and had enough of the lizard skin sound insulation to spray two coats. I have left over cearmic insulation and will spray a couple coats as well.

I had Ron Davis make my radiator and had oil cooler built in as well. Radiator drops right in and uses all the stock mounts.

Taking a page from Just Peachy and going to delete the door key lock and install remote door locks. I picked up door lock switches that will fit in console with a little work.

Finished up welding in the plugs for rear wiper and rear side markers. I used lowest heat setting on mig and took my time in between tachs and still got distortion in the metal. I am not very good at this and wished I could have seen an expert do it. Those guys who do this on tv or for a living are very good at what they do.

Spearlazy, unless your guy is really good, I would say you need to remove the glass and glazing to do it right. I suppose you could put a few tachs and spray with water, grind down and bondo the rest, but I donĺt see a full weld without damage.
