The CPP Week to Wicked build, presented by Super Chevy and Axalta is now past the midway point, and well past the point of no return. Today’s activities centered around re-wiring the car to support the new uprated driveline. Jeff Abbott Jr. from Painless Wiring and the Super Chevy tech staff are handling all of the wiring in the car, which has literally occupied all of day four of the build. It may not be the most glamorous part of a car build, but boy is it necessary. As this is typed, the clock is rounding 8:00 pm and there is a lot of cutting, splicing, soldering, and looming left before we can call it quits for the night. Effective tomorrow, we’ll only have one more day to get the car fired and driving.
It’s time to burn the midnight oil and get the electricity flowing!
Check out this time lapse of the engine-wiring portion and stay tuned on Facebook and SuperChevy.com for a full recap video later tonight. Don’t miss a minute of the build as the clock runs down. There are only a few days left before we hit the road for Arizona. Can we do it?
What is CPP Week to Wicked Presented by Super Chevy and Axalta?
It all begins the morning of April 18 when our stock 1967 Chevelle will roll into Super Chevy’s Santa Ana Tech Center for a full teardown and rebuild. We’ll be pulling the car down to its bones, replacing steering, suspension, powertrain, drivetrain, and just about everything else you can possibly imagine; all with the goal of bringing the performance of a 1967 Chevelle up to par with modern muscle cars. It’ll be a mad rush till the very last seconds of our timeline. And if that wasn’t enough, immediately following the build, we’ll be driving the car on a 1,000-plus-mile road trip to prove its road readiness. We’ll be hitting the drag strip, the engine dyno, and a few scenic local sites!
How can you follow along from home? The entire event will be covered on SuperChevy.com via daily video and story updates, as well as on all of our social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Stay tuned for what is sure to be one heckuva ride!
