    Body mods must be approved through the SEGA. A 32 header would probably be ok, but i doubt i could get away with laying the post back, but regardless, that wont work now, bc my roll cage would hit before i got the windshield frame laid back at all

  3. I don’t want to take away from your sedan, as I built a ‘30 sedan once. But, that ‘61 is killer. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one with carved-out quarter panels.
    I really like your pedal pads for your clutch and brakes. And your trailing arms in back. All cool stuff! Thanks for posting.

    Considering the people involved in the build I'm betting this isn't going to be a problem.
    Going to be a neat car!

    Marty, you Need to see this for Real! TV will do until the racing season, but it must be experienced. The cars are the stars, but the people make it Great. Banger, Gabe also posted updates on FBook. Come on Wednesday night!

    Like mentioned above, tune into discovery channel tomorrow night to check us out. Got the last few patch panels made tonight. Rear of the body has its mounts now as well. Stuck a mock bumper up there to try to get the full effect of what the competitors will be seeing all season.

    Now that looks like a for real 60’s gasser. Love it, warts & all. Like the coffee cups holding up the bumper also - smile smile
     
  11. I'm curious, are those fenders steel or fiberglass?

    Not much of an update, but I got a good start on the wheel tubs. Making them out of flat sheet with squared off corners because I felt it fits the era a lot better. 63D60BFD-3547-4139-92B4-1D098992763E.jpeg F7DF7295-1927-499C-951B-EEF72FFC7100.jpeg

    This about gets it caught back up to real time. Not too far from painting the chassis and starting some body work 20F75950-48F2-4E7B-8212-87A96CB1B1BA.jpeg 46501E1A-8A43-4AFB-8BD0-B68568D80322.jpeg E4C07680-ED2F-410E-97F9-74AC407B6C58.jpeg C998D65C-2E89-45CF-A980-7D20E43326F5.jpeg 2F741651-4F42-42E1-AE3A-030CE5496B87.jpeg AE848079-5B40-4DC7-AE76-81251DC29AA2.jpeg B27A0CBD-F023-421C-8182-22CEBBFCE43E.jpeg 49AEF1E7-395B-4443-94B7-6395360B4532.jpeg BE0F80D3-60FE-43B2-946F-A3092EB29FD9.jpeg D0C33F38-1C0B-4111-996C-C4D0C06AA52C.jpeg D1AF2036-3614-49C1-A649-31B77C4033A1.jpeg E36F8561-6044-429B-9624-517B30E07751.jpeg 918C4846-4675-4398-BBE1-A6F5EF2A0C79.jpeg D88AA625-FC96-483A-984C-1468DFA3BC44.jpeg CDE6474C-D1D1-4393-8FCE-2DFF894DA85C.jpeg

    Glad you went with the visor. Now she looks like an "A". Great choices all around on the new car!

    Been wide open on this thing still. Can’t remember to update the thread, but the fab work on the chassis is all but finished. Getting the last of the parts I need to finish this thing up as well. Having to do a remote water pump since I have the engine slid so far forward. Everything on the car has been built with ease of working on and maintaining it in mind.

    Still chipping along at this thing. Still praying it’ll be at the first race on April 13. The list of things to do keeps getting shorter. This is the end of the chassis fab pics. Next stop, the powdercoater. Big thanks to Quain for helping me get out of a time pinch so I could make the appointment I had with the powder coat place.

    Anderson welding and powdercoat in Chesnee Sc did a great job on the powdercoat. Got me squeezed in and a 24 hr turn around time. Work looks spectacular as well.
