I doodle draw race cars and hot rods Chris. I don't know what your car will end up looking like. I have sketched it all black with a white boogie man on each side going across the doors to where the rear wheels are. He is horizontal like he is flying fast. The boogie man looks like casper the ghost, except he has glowing red eyes and a sinister look. He sort of fades out at his edges to look ghostly. He also has claws on his hands. Below his waistline he breaks into white letters spelling out BOOGIE MAN. I can't wait to see the finished product any which way you do it.

Patricia, typing on Steve's computer.

Got the rear slicks last night and the back brace. I mounted the slicks on the wheels we are running and just had to stick them up under the car to get a look!!!!

Back brace..

Very cool build thread! making progress!

I gotta ask though... how does that rear suspension work?

Are you adding more tubes to it?
