    Yeah I got the link and they were not the ones we need. They aren't center logo covers. Unless it's a different set. The ones I saw had the flat pad under the MT logo

    We've become fans of the pent roof covers...we talked about it and we thought that it wound make the thing look like a chevy. We're kind of over the MT covers. It looks bitchin right now...

  6. Robert, I got digging in some old boxes and found this jacket - It was one Ray gave me when I worked at BAC - it's a Medium and has some battery acid rash (or maybe moths). PM me with a shipping address and I'll get it off to you

    Carl, glad this made your day and glad you were able to check it out. This build had been pretty fun from day 1 so sharing it was never an issue. I actually just drove through Roseville and am now in Ukiah relaxing for a few days.
    Thanks for checking the thread out, I really mean that.

  16. Absolutely Beautiful Robert. Thank you (and tall hose who contributed) for saving this significant piece of drag racing history.
    You just have to put Mr. C behind the wheel for the CHRR push start.

    I watched the YouTube video where the TD rockers were described. The FE sounds great on fuel.
