    Should look real nice when it's done. The way the front bumper is tucked in is neat, the rear looks that way too. How much does the car weigh rtr?

    1.25 60ft 5.78@122 1/8 mile 9.04@150 1/4 mile. That was before we took out the 4.88 gear and put in 4.56 and change the tires from 14x32 to 16x33. This was to bring the RPM down at the top end so the motor will live a long time. Doing the changes slowed the car down to 9.teens

    I just got the headers back from Nitro Plate. These headers needed it. They are 14 years old. I had to get a few spot welded up before I sent them off.

    After my last post I went over there today and nothing. He hasn't touched it. This guy is getting on my nerves. I've been patience with this guy but now it's time to turn the heat up on him. I'm going to call him a couple of times a week. Maybe I will bother him enough to where he just gets the car down to get me out of his hair. He has had the car since last Thanksgivings. I got the new front rims in.
