    Hey man thanks for keepin an eye out. The fuel line comes out in the middle of the tank/frame and the muffler is offset so I think it will be alright. I did also flare the end of the copper and will of course put a clamp on it.

    Ha thanks Dewayne are you going to the Coker cruise in or Redneck Rumble? I should be at both. Hopefully ;)

    It was dug out, gravel laid down, then the slab poured on top of the gravel.

    Well guys, I picked up another project today. Not sure exactly if I'm going to keep this, or flip it, or what yet. But if I do start to build, I have an idea of what look I want. 401 nailhead/700R4, Mustang II, 17"/18" artillerys. What do y'all think???

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTT !!!! These are better pics than you sent on my phone. Looks really solid. Nailhead and 700 are the right direction. Oh yeah needs multiple carbs also

    You'll probably end up on Dogfight with that one. But we will still check in on you. It's all good.

    Thanks man. I'm also kind of looking for a Nailhead. I've been told 401 and 425s are the ones to have, but are the smaller cubic inch motors bad? Will be going in a cruiser, not a race car. Thanks!

    X2,

    Blown away by so much on this build, saving that body is just a feat in itself, and the color combo is bitchin! Awesome stuff, and congrats on the new shop.
