How was Glamis, looks like you were out last week.

Awesome trip, i was there for 8 days. So far this season we have 38 days total in Glamis. Miss hanging with you out there. Ran into Adam at the drags and introduced him to my buddy Dave who needs a new dash built for his car.

Another year has gone by and my car is ready for some more body work at KATG Motorsports.  I installed my dry sump LS7 and larger radiator last April and have had 35 days in Glamis so far this season.  I’m happy with the new engine and radiator (never gets above 185*) so I called  to see when he could get me on his schedule.  I dropped the car off last week and after looking at it Adam called me with some ideas for the engine tins, rear fenders/ quarter panels, new roof and a fire wall behind the rear seats.  I’m heading out there soon to take a look at the progress and should have some more pics to post up.

Looking forward to seeing how she turns out. I'm not a fan of the big body cars but I really like what KATG has done with your car. Just to be clear while I'm not a fan of the big body cars, I do admire the skill and craftsmanship that goes into them. :thumbup:

Can’t wait to see the finished product. Love KATG metal work and love the Sidewinders should be a great combination!

Couldn't be happier with this project! has been really great to work with.  I never would have imagined this type of body being done on my car but Adam and his crew have a vision and the ability to turn that into a reality.

Looks great and it appears that your back seat access isn’t impeded.

 

It’s great to see you using your car while doing a “little” here and a “little” there!

Funny! I guess we know where that car ended up at.

Went to the shop this afternoon to see my car in person. It's cliche but pics really do not do it justice. It's a completely different car now.

The light in the roof? That's new.

Side panels are getting done today.

Adam didn't think just a panel next to the trans was enough and came up with this extra panel. Much better and gives it a finished look.

Firewall behind the rear seats is done. Exactly what I wanted.

Awesome work. Great looking car. 

Does the roof have a slight radius to it, but with the frame still being straight?

Yes it does have a slight radius to it but the tubes under are still flat. It's a faux radius roof. Seen it done on lots of cars over the years. A radius roof looks so much more updated then flat I decided I needed one done on my car. Wouldn't know unless you got close to it but one of the most popular and well known sandrails in Glamis had a faux radius roof too...
