I sure like that dash layout! Are you mounting casters under the front bumper?

Do you think you will make it to the Nats?

I built them that way 'cause that's what I wanted them to look like. Size-wise, they are overkill.

i really like what you did with the wood under, I also dispise being able to see through the bed. it just seems weird to me. But it looks great. and i actually like the wheels, they are different for a "rat" rod.but i like em.

I finally cranked it!!!!!!

The big headers and big pipes sound killer. It idles about like a pro-stocker. A little on the loud side, but I'm gonna try it as is (well, maybe put turndowns on the mufflers).


Now I need a gas pedal so I can drive it.

Me too, I dislike them less now than at first. I like the stance, your work is great but the wood just doesn't trip the light fantastic for me. I'm just not a flatbed fan.
