Dragsters done if ya want a look

My Journal

Finally got it put together Sat. afternoon. I/He was really pleased with the final results which really surprised me due to the fact that this was almost a panel painted job. I rigged up stands and what not to shoot the kandy at the same time and sort of in sequence but the pinstripe was the real killer. I'm not too good of a straight line puller but with some persistence and about a qt. of reducer,lol, I got it looking nice.
This has been my most complicated to date and was a real test by fire,sorry for the pun......what the hell, no I'm not hehehe. I loved it ALL, Good,wrinkled,wrong,crooked,beautiful Cobalt kandy and the rest.

It ran a 4.70 et. all day Sun. and ended up in the Semi's out of 30 cars.Decided to run a .68 that round.
Paint job was well reviewed and looks like more work is ahead.

Thanks for your comments and crit's if you got some.
Your advice is invaluable and a couple of special people, Jim (mrcleaner6) and Keith (Outlaw) really helped in a BIG way.
I THANK YOU ALL!!!!

Mike.
