I'm a new guy with a new project. Decided  to build myself a rolling pipe rack for bracket racing. Been out of the sport for quite a while. Built many door slammers over the years. The dragster project is a first.
I love to TIG weld so this is a labor of love.  =;

Welcome to the board. The only thing we really want to know is: Are you a small block guy, or a big block guy. =;

Either way you are welcome here. \:D/

That looks like a nice car, how long have you been building it for? As far as BB SB, I have both, so don't ask me.

Welcome to the board Blue. Looking at your project, I'm impressed. Tell us more. Is it a copy or did you design it yourself? Wheelbase? What kind of tube? Did you build any droop or twist in it? Slip join or Solid or suspended? These kind of projects get me excited. Makes me want to find my fish mouth cutter.

That looks like a nice jig you built there.
