Hi Cory

That looks awesome, god i wish i was in the states.   You are getting into it as well, pity i wasnt there with you, I reckon it would be good spending every spare second off the day on that thing.

Hope its all going well.


Also, serious question time now.   what would a chassis and a nbody like that cost.   Just like you got Cory.   No engine or tranny, no nice wheels or anything, just a bare roller.

I found it in the book....It says that the floor must extend the full length and width of driver compartment to the rear of the driver's seat...

Minimum .032-inch aluminum or .024-inch steel... So your good there as long as it's one piece on the drivers side =; Same for the firewall as far as spec's........

Do anything with the footbrake car or is that stalled right now.......
