Hey Steve, so if you have an Altima battery you do not have to put it in a sealed and vented box if its inside the vehicle with you?

I haven't had any inspector say other wise. Actually they are more worried about the ground on the fuel cell. I will send a picture to the tech guy at NMCA and see what he says for sure. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'm guessing since the Optima has no fluid in it it is not required to have a sealed container. :-k

Containment is what they are all about, and make sure you have a metal cover under your fuel cell fittings, they will let you know on that too ;-)  If, you can put the batt. in a box of some sort, they will be your friends, the more protection, the better. fyi.

Oooops, I see you have it all set up already, your stuff looks good in the back. ;-)

Barry it was $200. The windshield with the built in antenna was cheaper than without. The guy came from louisville (40 some miles) to put it in.

John the tech guy from NMCA said I have to cover the fuel cell. So that is next on the agenda. =;

One local place told me 275, another 200. This guy was recommended by a local builder. Hey it's fixed so I'm happy =; Besides he has seen our car before and he is building one so Jake can get some back at the track ;-)

Well with the engine rebuild we are still under construction. We have the short block back together. Eagle internal 4340 crank, Eagle H- beam rods, New SFI balancer, rocker arms, stud girdle, and rebuilt carb. We are suppose to get the heads back so we can recheck clearances and see if the cam is still where it needs to be. I'll post internal pictures when we get ready to button it up.

Looking good Steve! Are those pistons sticking out of the hole just a little?

Yes, he had to align hone about .005 into the block so it raised the crank. I think I said that right. He said it wasn't enough for a shorter timing chain though.
