But here is a little update, and Will going for Daisy mags 11" Wide in back and open wheel opening
The exhaust cut-outs are supposed to go on the other end of the engine.
Ahhh! You got me there!! Well, thats Ture for sure
Good find and good luck.
The chassie get some Love, including PaintJob, 409 springs up front and ballspacers. And a frame for the rear shocks.
And also went to a 327 with staggered heads, with high compression pistons,totally balanced.
And as for the Picture, preparing the bellhousing and clutch
Slow and steady,keep the updates coming. HRP
Congrats-took me a long time to get mine, but it was the one to wait for. Have fun.
I tought that I never gonna own one, but wow, it realy happend
and the Magic part to build a gasser, amazingly fun! I already have name and PaintJob ready in my head. Are yours ready and running?
Yeah, I Hope to speed up my gasserbuild posts now..
the old dragster build has been taking lot of my time. As for the moment, Im building on four cars and four engines at same time, witch feels Everything goes in slowmotion ;-)
I have also fixed some new openings for wide gasser wheels.but I dont mind cut and change these now, beacuse I want the real ride measure..first..
Tell us about the plan for your paint job, good project!
The frontend will be high, and lowering the back a little, with bigger openings and tires pointing out. And as for the Paint, Im going for oldschool flames burning out from the backwheels openings and goes up on trunk(like the tires sets on fire)
And on the sides(crossing the door) with the name; "FIRESTARTER" , hand painted, (no stickers off course)
But the base color hasnt been nailed yet,
will see about that detail. Colored glass.
What do you Think about that idea?
What are the new wheel openings from? Looks like they will fit pretty good!
The openings are cut off a hrm..volvo amazon.. But fit supernice.
starts and ends with same measure
Need some help!..
I bought a siginaw 4 speed, and missing those 3 arms, witch bolts on the shifteraxles....
where Can I find? Thanks
Yeah, I bought a Harvey aluminum flywheel couple days ago, but maybe its better to put it in my Ford coupé 1930? Less weight I mean?
