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.
You and me both James.
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!
Lookin MEAN & GREEN.

Still got a bit of work to do, but here are a few pix from tonite.
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.

What color green is that ... Man that's a nice green! Like how you went with the off white.. Looks great!

Should name it "The Lime Rickey" goes with the green paint and it's an old time drink LOL.
Love it keep up the good work, it's just too cool.
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).
10 hours on the chassis yesterday, set the body on today for some inspiration.
Fantastic!! She looks mean.

Looking like the good old days are BACK.
Top contender for the artwork. Still one more person to send their design.
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.
This one may be the one. Still waiting on one more artist.
Brian looks like a tough crowd.
Not many smiles in the room.
What do you mean James, that is me smiling!
I could see your eyebrows were up.
Like this side better
