Hey Kip,
Thanks for following the build.
My advice from what i know would be to buy the correct headlights for the car. Given the diffuser pattern it would always spray incorrectly whatever you do to the globes. The headlights on a GTO are exposed rather than behind a reversed reflector so initial options are very limited as it is.

Im not sure i can provide too much for suspension, its not a strong point for me personally. I started with a set of EOM struts then changed springs (Kings L) which dropped about 25mm. That gave a really nice handling to it. I then purchased for my car the K-Sport mid tier coilovers (Inverted monoshock system) and whilst they are on the car now ive found a company who will make a custom made, dyno balanced set for me. My goal is for spirited road/road course suspension.

If your a weekend warrior id put nice springs in the OEM struts.

If your a weekend racer id find a reputable suspension shop who can tailor your needs. Sorry if i couldnt be more help on that one...

WOW thanks for the great reply. The headlights sound like an easy obvious solution or does the problem remain with the night time visibility? On the suspension we are on the same page. I want great handling and the power to make it all work. In your work on the springs were you able to maintain the original AWD/AWS? Unlike many others I really enjoy these features. I am not a drag "Queen". I found the Vettes were muscle enough modified and frankly not very interesting racing in a straight line. I am looking for very tight cornering on my country hill course I drive to get my sense of freedom and sanity back. So, I am about maximum handling, but try to keep the original innovations in operation and improve on them if possible? There are no suspension shops here in KC that can begin to or are willing to look this issue over. The 3000GTs are universally looked at with disdain from unknowledgeable mechanics of any kind. One of the main reasons I am on here. Also, one of the reasons the GTs go cheap in this area. I am out of parking room already. Thanks again and good luck on the build. It is great you take the time to share it with us. Best Regards-Kip

Hi all,
Passenger side is finished (interior) glovebox, undertrim etc. Meth gauge (AEM kit w/ failsafe) is mounted nicely in the glovebox area. Wiring all hidden of course.

Moving onto the drivers side now.
