I have been busy with training and work last couple of weeks. But finally back working on the car. Got 3 of the 4 front bars done. Hopefully will get some bars connected to the front bumper tonight.

Got the front done. Cut a bit more from the outer frame and boxed it. Connected to frame rails for the shock towers and got rid of the extra metal holding the top of the cooler!

450whp and an NA CAS? Do yourself a favor and get some NB cam/crank sensors and one of our 12-tooth wheels. Way less timing scatter, way safer.

I have been thinking about that. Or some kind of a 36-1 with the cam sensor!

Well it has been a while since I have posted an update. I haven't been online much, however I have been working on the car. This week I have finally started putting the rear back in.

The process of framing the passenger compartment and taking the floor out is done. Now I will start framing the driver seat, exhaust box and fuel cell.

Rear diff housing is narrowed now and it fits all under the body work. Starting to make the rear linkage and suspension points!

It turns out the diff and transmission align perfectly for the driveshaft at the ride height. The car should be a roller again soon!

Have posted any updates for a couple of weeks! I got more of the interior framing done and I finished the suspension links today. Will get the rear end mounted this week!

The one picture with the sand and the 4 links is to cool the welds down slowly with in the sand. This way the 4130N keeps its properties a bit better!
