Event Coverage Official 2016 Meltdown Drags Thread - What are you doing to get ready?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Okiedoker, Nov 23, 2015.

  1. Randys finally seeing the missing dollar signs for poo pooing the Meltdown.

    The light comes disguised as low entry fees and high gate count... Instead of trying to retire entirely off the backs of the racers!

    Finally back home from working out of town,spent a couple days with the Family,then took off out to my Dad's place to figure out where I left off on the car months ago...lol

    Ended up getting my lines flared and bent up to install the line lock,and the wiring almost complete but I ran out of time.
    Will be able to finish it off this week,but it's at about 90% for the line lock install.

    Also,for those of you that are interested (Jeff),I installed a switch that both turns the line lock on,AND shuts it off when you're done with it...;) xoxo

    Ps: Happy Easter everyone.

    God bless you guys.This is about the best collection of human beings I've ever been fortunate enough to associate with.
    Hope every one of you are enjoying a nice dinner with family today,and remembering what the day is truly about,not just a bunch of chocolate for the kids.

    Thanks guys.
    The boys just stopped by. Hope the home comfort eased the pain.

    Now it's funny how life deal out well life.
    I was feeling young and spry yesterday when I blew the winter cobwebs out of the 409 and backed it up to the shanty town shop to size up the new rear end project. Man did I open a can of worms on this.

    Has anyone tried to put axle tubes in a P/O rear end housing?
     
  20. Happy Belated Salt man!
