well the weather held out great so far getting colder now, so we got most of it done got to plumb the breaks, put a floor board down find a good place for the B&M shifter boy its a tight fit sitting in it, but i guess thats what a dragster is supposed to be like. ill start working on the casket .since mine has a single lid i have to cut it and use a hing along the rear so it flips up it has a light blue lining right now but might change it to red or purple satin.got to cut the cockpit opening and put on the windsheild, still got a ways to go but all this can be done inside my shop. my wifes comes out and says looks good now how r u gonna it out if the back yard???? i guess take down the side fence.. had to fix the gate anywaywill post pics later on today

I think it really needs a "tomb stone" rad shell!

Man !!!! Your well on your way now... My hat is off to you for going for it... I hope one day we can park next to each other at a show.... That would be cool.... Just remember to keep everything safe..

Safety is aways first in my book... Good luck and it will be a cool build when done...If other's can build it... Why can't you... That's the way I see things..

Don't look back now !!!!
Your doing something that most people only dream of doing...
Your doing it !!!!

coming along pretty good concidering we are doing this out side in the cold on sheets of plywood hell i guess just like working on a boat up on blocks , my brother owns a 46' post fishing boat during the winter months they take it out of the slip if anything needs to be fixed well u have to do it . i have to do something about the way the steering is hooked up it works but doesnt look good maybe box it in more .. didnt get to much done this weekend because of the holiday but hey thats ok pretty much done. bled the breaks and the dam wheel cylinders must be froze they spit out black fluid then clear but they never pushed the break open. so thats an easy fix.well have a 3 day weekend this coming so ill tackle all the little stuff then.

The first thing you should work on is your welds. You really need more penatration. There are some good welding threads here on Hotrodders. You need to slow down your passes and go back and forth across the seam to pool the weld on each side. But honestly, read the threads on welding and you will be very happy you did in just a short while. I know you have a lot of passion to BUILD this car and you are doing an outstanding job but slow down just a little and improve your welds.

You can smooth them if you want it to look like a show car.. That's up to you...

Here's something I found that you might want...

I plan on making my rounds with it as soon as it's done... I'm hoping to start showing it next year at this time... First stop will be at the world of wheel's in New Orleans..I took first place there in 95 in the street machine class..This c-cab will be a lot of fun.... I took it out to go get it weighed and people was running off the road and passing on the shoulder to see what it was.. It was fun just taking it out on the car trailer.... People didn't know what the h*** it was... So the first show should be a fun time ... It should let me know if I should make my rounds or not...
