I like your plan, combine what you like from your previous cars into one bad a$$ car.

Following for sure

Nothing new to really post.

Getting rims and rings powder coated, and ordering nickel and dime items.

Engine is at Johns for a health check. Need to follow up with him on that.

Trans is at the shop. Waiting for the good/bad news there.

Current lead times on stuff is disheartening. Jet Trim is saying 12 weeks. King is who knows. Now with the Holley thread here I am worried that I wont get what I want there either.

Standing by to stand by is the new normal. I feel like I started early enough to get this all done. Who knew the industry would be hit this hard.

I was happy at the end of last season to be down to this one car. Now I wish I would have kept one. :lol:

 

Time will tell.

Transmission is done. Rancho had it for roughly 2 weeks, Rebuilt and re-geared for 17's.

Was able to borrow a set of bypass shocks. Big thank you for that one. You know who you are!!!

Now we can finish the frame mock up.

Took a torch to the new rubber around the beads to blast away all the rubber boogers. Then sand paper to smooth them out. 

 

Beads seated. Soap and water no leaks. So far so good. 

One down three to go.
