Great shots LilSmoke. Looks like your rail is coming along fine.
You can start a Photo Gallery of your own by clicking on "Photo Gallery" at the top of the page. Then click on "My Gallery" and then "upload pictures". Follow the prompts but you already know how to do the rest.

Great looking rail!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reminds me of the 60's and early 70's when traction was a big problem and a driver had to be good.

It is a 68 Woody Gilmore car that was 160 in wheelbase and now has been stretched to 225 in. Yes my brother built the fuel tank to my specs and did the stretching and the body panels and the paint. Will be testing on the 20th in Kearney Neb.
