    Looks great like how they have the lettering blown back in the proper direction on both sides, nice touch.

    Thanks loudbang, Travis the guy that lettered it, really got it looking good. Dad's old car had the lettering leaning the same on the passenger side as the drivers, this looks so much better in my opinion.

    Quain said you modified some rubber for your front and rear glass, what did you use and is the front and rear glass or lexan?

    The front and rear are both lexan. We bolted them in like a regular racecar, then cut the factory rubber and glued it over top so it looks like it's in the factory rubber

    Got my seat covers in, they're just laying in the car, and the covers aren't stretched on it yet. But I'm excited.

    Been finishing up loose ends on the car, freshened the jerico up, and changed shifters. Got a sweet new old stock hurst super shifter on it now. Wiring is done, and everything is back together. All that's left really is put the windshield in, and adjust the valves. We're looking forward to Montgomery!

    Zak.. I didn't know you had a HAMB build on your car. I just read it all today after I accidently stumbled onto it. I am subscribed. I am sure there are other SEG builds on here I have not seen but if I sat on my butt and read them all I would never get anything done on my own junk...LOL Nice to see a little more of your back story. You and your dad have come a long way with this car. You both should be very proud. You don't realize yet how much this car will mean to you someday. Hope to see you at Montgomery in a couple weeks. Looks like you are ready. Car looks great!
