more pics soon, on another note.. i just weigh this car and aside from maybe 300-400 pounds of stuff still going in it, it weighs 2175 pounds.lol... and its pretty even front to back, 1081 on the front and 1084 on the rear.. lightweight..this car still has power window's, stock door panels and dash.. and the radios still in it.lol.. we pit a cage in a zo6 and his car weighs 3500 lbs, amazinging how much weight comes out of a vette when you back halve it...

depends on the car and there are alot of different variables suspension wise... this car had alot of hours into it cause of the way vettes are built and extra things we needed to do to it.. it could be anywhere from 6500- 14000.00 if you want a serious pice you could call my father and he could give you a good idea on the cost... I've bee thinking about mini tubbing my car and put a ladder bar or short 4link in it with a straight axle(12 bolt or dana) jay

this vette was on the high end of the price range i posted above...

im a newbie on this back halved stuff and tubbed. does backhalved mean you cut the car in half and replaced the interior metals? tubbed? isn't that the tire tub things so you can run huge slicks?

this is where the stock wheels tub was(where you can see the tire)once this car is mini tubbed you can fit a decent sized tire, but in most cars still keep your back seat...when we back half a car it get done like the pics of the vette above, usually we cut out the stock flooring from behind the front seats back to the rear of the car...:) we have done back half cars and been able to keep the back seat in them(depends on the car) hope that helps:)
