still working on the mustang.....I made a fuel cell out of an old aluminum tool box,I mounted the radiator like a rack and pinion,the rear tires in an earlier picture are not going to be used he went with 14.5w x 32 hoosiers they are being mounted now.
The cylinder head guy stopped to port match the intake but the intake wont line up(Dart pro-1 230cc w/Dart 4150 intake)so he got a super vic for it and it is being port matched now.
The drivetrain is in the car engine,trans., driveshaft,rearend,wiring is done except engine connections,and we still need to do the plumbing(rear brake lines are done)....it should be running in a couple weeks \:D/

Mr Vega,

Very nice work on both cars buddy. I see one thing that an NHRA or an NMCA tech guy may chat with you about, and that is that red dinky little red battery hold down top bracket and I am not sure what size threaded rod you used but they would prefer to see at least 1/2" thread diameter, and a much more wider hold down top plate. Just a heads up as I had this same setup and the tech guys at Norwalk, Ohio(Summit Motorsports Park) came by for there normal, "Hi Mr. Hollywood" greetings(since I went to the final 4 on Pinks last year) and they saw that and mentioned to make it better, I said, NOOOO Problem, it will be done the next time I pull thru the gates and all is good now. Not nitpicking, just a heads up from the tech people who at some tracks can be a little, should I say, cranky and have atitudes!!! :- :-

Oh, man I almost forgot, when installing all your hardware for the ladder bars or for any other ladder bar & 4 link jobs, to make sure that NONE OF THE THREADS will be in the bracket or heim joints???? if so, get them out of there and get the bolts with the longer shoulders and cut the bolts off at the ends if necessary, I have seen many a bracket that has elongated due to this and once the threads collapse, then the gap starts and the bolts beatup the brackets and the heim joints could fail prematurely. Just passing info on from my chsssis class with Dave Morgan this past Jan. ;-) Good info to know I think...

I love your shifter tube being bent also for a shift stand, very nice work on that too. The Stang has the best thing going for it also, "CHEVY POWER" =; =; =;

Thanks guys,even though it is a mustang it is looking pretty good

John I checked the rulebook(2008) and 3/8" rods are all that are required (2) and your right the "little" red hold down is not staying! I will make something out of stainless for it.

I am getting ready to start a new thread as we moved a s-10 in last weekend that will use the factory front clip but it is going to be a full roundtube 7.50 chassis! ......sweet back on a chevy project!

Is it 3/8? sounds good to me, I just went with 1/2 for the larger diameter and the safety factor as I have a pretty big battery case. Looking forward to watching the S-10 buildup too =;
