Don't get me wrong it's coming out great but I was just wondering how about your engine any plans on placing it in the hood? Please let me know when your going to take that bad boy to the Baytown track I want to be there maybe consider a roll cage for to be on the safe side. I'm going to PM you so look for it.
Be good! RJ
Hey RJ, good to hear from you again. Thanks! I think it's just an illusion cause of the angle that I took the picture. I'll pull her out again and give it a good look from far back, but last time I really paid attention it seemed just fine. My next goal is to get the remaining parts for the engine (starter, water pump). rebuild the transmission, get the roll bar / cage going, and to rebuild and paint the chassis. Once I get all that done I can get the engine in. I'm hoping to have all that done by April. I just depends on how much funds I have to spend. Once I get her going I'll definitely take it down to the track and I'll be sure to let you know when I plan to go.
