Thanks. I'm hoping to get it to the track on the 18th for some test & tune. Car weighed 2700 lbs. with a iron headed big block and ran 10.0's with a mild 454. This engine has Brodix heads and is a 468 with 13.5 to 1 compression. 2x3 tube frame, ladder bar w/ dana 60 4:88's and the complete interior is aluminum. I've been building this car since last Dec. and can't wait to see what it'll run.

The car is done except for a problem I'm having getting the conveter to seat properly. Once I get that done, its ready to hit the track. I plan on running it the way it is a little until I get use to the car. I do have a couple of nitrous kits (one plate & one fogger) that I'd like to try at some point. Don't really plan on running the spray a lot but I do have a couple of grudge races coming up and do plan on using the spray for those. The heads are studded and the ring where gapped loose for the spray.

Great looking wagon \:D/  \:D/  \:D/  \:D/

How much is steel and what did you use to block the windows? the front fenders look steel. Did those wheel wells help any?

Thanks, unfortunately its all steel except for the hood. The nose comes off after removing 2 bolts and 2 pins but still don't know why the builder didn't go with fiberglass. Thankfully the windows are in frames and I pulled the glass ones out and cut the plastic to exactly the same dimensions. Slid the plastic ones up into the frames and riveted the bottoms to the door.  I'll have to see if they'll pass tech inspection.

Thank you. I am dying to get this to the dragstrip and I'm hoping to get it there this coming weekend with a little bit of luck.
