    Check this one out... I didn't want to put this up here before, I don't do this for notoriety. I definitely appreciate the article and this it's really cool. I decided to because it's also a tribute to Roy and all the help he gave me. It was a 5 page article in the magazine last month.

    Nice article and good of you to give a shout out to ROY RIP. Hey putting it up isn't bragging most of us would give our eye teeth to have even one photo in a mag article. :)

    My friend Chris came over and did the engine compartment for me, starting to come together. I took out the dodge a100 seats and put a kirkey low back race seat in. It looks pretty good. It will be safer and stronger.

    A little progress on the motor, once I get it back I can get the brakes done. I think I need to relocate the master cylinder, but won't know for sure until the motor is in [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Curious as why you are not using the rocker shaft end stands.
    Maybe not enough valve spring to need them?

    With the roller cam, there is only 150 on the seat and 325 open so my engine builder didn't think they were necessary.. Nice catch though!
