Wow...time goes on, and I forgot to add some pics of progress.
Since the last entry, The body is all stripped. The patch panels are installed. The cage was certified for 8.50 or slower. Then additional bars were added to stiffen the chassis. The firewall was next. it had to be plugged of all holes, in case of a fire. It took a whole day to plug all the holes!

Here is the car back in the shop with the slicks roughed in. The real rubber will be 2" wider. Its also sandblasted so the repair work can start on the floorboards and tinning the back.

The monte has seen some progress since my last post. The back half kit is in, and so is the roll cage. The cage has been NHRA certified for 8.50 seconds and slower for the 1/4 mile.

Get a load of the rear wheels. Thats how much the rear end has been narrowed. the rear end is 38" wide now.
