Its not going to long before your son is going to be showing you a thing or two.
bat box mounted
Sweet build! Is the battery really going there?
Dude, awesome car, awesome build, but that battery is going to get torn off!
Sweet build man. I wish mine was halfway near that point.
Battery sits higher than the body ?
It's good.. Never tore the ass off the body
how many inches is the body from the ground? if you dont mind me asking
i would put a shield around the front of your battery, the one under the floor of my pickup get all covered in oil and dirt off the road, now i do have a couple of small oil leaks and a road draft tube, but even a sharp piece of metal laying in the road could get kicked up and go through the side of a battery, it would make for a nice spark show.
OK, must be an optical illusion in that picture. It makes the battery look lower than the bottom the wheel.
for all the battery haters
Here are a few updates
2.0 adj rear end
1.0 lower fuel lines
1.0 fuel pump
.5 pos batt cable
Thats so awesome, how much have you put into it so far, spending wise??
alot - engine rebuild hurt the bank something fierce
Go Man, Go!
Coming along really nice, what is your ET for fireup?
we got brakes
dash and wiring this weekend.
Then time for a test drive
back on the DASH
I totaly screwed up on PIC 2096 - too much paint at one time without proper cure time = GOOOOYYYY Mess... I had to totaly strip it down with some JAsco and start over. Did you know Jasco lifts bondo ? LOL
Well my boy will get another good lesson in sanding I guess .....
As they said in Meet the Robinsons "Keep moving forward" right ?
dash is done.. wiring is closing in
Looking good chopperman. Been following your builds for awhile. (Here and on Priates)
drove it tonight
Man this car is FUN
the rebuilt little red ram really moves this lightweight coupe along ( smokes the tires easy and chirps 2nd and 3rd ). Of course 4.11's and a TCI race trans help too
very cool the A looks awesome
Awesome, love it.

Very cool work! Nice driving, I suppose, too!!
I love "How to do" topics.
