    Man!! This thing is BAD ASS!! Its killing me, im making progress on mine, hoping to be done for Detroit Autorama, and seeing you complete yours is just making me want to go and work on mine right now!! lol alas, i am at work =/ Keep posting the pics and that video would be sweet! You gonna go to the Meltdown? I know it would be a long trek for ya, but it would be cool to see it in real life.

    Thanks. I will post pics sometime soon. Keep working on ur car and it will finally get done... It seemed like mine took forever... Kept missing event deadlines... Now I don't set them because it brings let down when you don't meet them.

    Just an empty parking lot there now.
    Love the lettering. I didn't think I'd like the color scheme when I first read what you planned. Was I wrong on that! I think it came together great. Looking forward to seeing some vids on itand hearing the motor. :)

    After studing your build how well is the rear mounted radiator working without any opening in the trunk lid like I have seen ours do? The more I look at this build it is just bad ass build.

    The radiator is where stock fuel tank was and it's on a angle so it scoops air from below car and pushes thru.. Also had two pusher fans and 24 feet total of thin aluminum 1 1/2 in piping to run cooling to the front and return to rear.. Runs too cool most times... Don't even turn fans on...
