    Roy i slowed up for little bit,i had to build a few trophies for billetproof and my dad sold his falcon and now bought a 72 maverick grabber,so i have turned to build on dads car..Its comming right along..getting a DSS 311 with a vortech v1,and a AOD trans,9 inch 370 gear,cal trac bars..this is gonna be a fun car to drive to the track,flogg it and drive it home..
    As for the falcon...i plan on cutting the rear wheel wells and mock up my rear cross member this week.. I am looking at buying some fiberglass doors to try and save some weight..has anybody had any luck with the crites doors?? i am real happy with the hood i did buy and figured the doors would be as good..
    I'll snap a few pics when i get cutting this week..its gonna be back on it !..

    Can anybody tell me how much of a weight savings there is with crites fiberglass doors over the stock steel...I was wondering how much of a difference there is..And has anybody used them ?
