    Thanks fellas, it was a last minute change of mind, was going a dark maroon but seeing a lot of cars being built in that colour, I just wanted something different. It's a really dark blue, darker then navy but in some lights it almost has a purple tinge.
    It's been done in acrylic so a final sand and buff should get it nice and shiny

    Yup, Cragar, Mr gloss himself, I was worried that I'd prepped the frame to near his high standard, I let him lay the final coat and stood back and watched the master at work!!

    I would certainly like to hear that gorilla motor fire up some time soon Thommo!!

    what a great looking chassis!
     
  19. The chassis is looking real good, I hope to see it next run.
     
  20. Very tidy chassis, love the exhaust through the back crossmember.
    I thing quite a few people got stuff done while the HAMB was down.

    Going through engine and a double check, refresh gaskets and fit up schiefer aluminum flywheel.
    Swapping heads from the edelbrock to navarro, not a straight swap as the edelbrock's are the hi roof to accommodate the hi lift cam.
    Off to machine shop for heads to have a fly cut and cc match up.

  22. Good stuff Thommo, don't know how I haven't came across this thread before but she looks like she should be a cool ride when done. hope to see her around the traps some time when she's done.
     
  23. Nice progress and a nice chassis. I have one coming together almost at the same point as yours.
