    I can't wait to see it.
    And I understand the bleeding money part.

    That should put you right around 9.0s @ 148 when you get it sorted. Take your time and work your way up to it.

    Yes sir, I will take small steps with this crate for sure. I doubt will see faster than 9.50-10.0 though due to no certification. I appreciate the concern.

    My buddy Rob has been a busy bee on the altered. Body has base of green, and cove painted white. After cure time, it will get the flake, and then bury everything in clear!

    White and green are done!!! Have to clean up the inside of the body, and let her dry a bit. Like to have it lettered by the end of the month, and have the chassis done by that time as well. Lots of little things to finish up, but we are getting there.

    It is electric green base, with Roth Greengo flake. We put a half of pound of flake on the body! The thing just glows. The white is Wimbeldon white. Can't wait to see it in the sunlight.

    Paint looks really great and with the W motor you have really nailed the era IMO. Hope to see it up close one of these days-hopefully at the Meltdown where it would fit right in (which James has already probably told you).

    Back in the day that car would never have been a B/A. Most likely a AA/A the double A was a blower desigination . That is a very sharp paint job.

    The artist just through the letters and numbers on. The other doo dads may not make the cut either.

    Brian looks like a tough crowd.
    Not many smiles in the room.
