That's a very good question. One that I'm quite concerned about. I can't easily get ahold of an NB head to race this season either. I can't have my car in the garage much longer, and I can't park it on the street...

You guys need to be more vocal.

If someone was holding my parts hostage without updating me on progress I'd bring the pain.

I was trying to avoid bringing the pain, if possible. If he doesn't answer his phone, PMs or email but can post to another forum DAILY, I think there's a problem though.

man thats rough! I was really hoping i could send him my head and motor.....If it makes you feel any better when i got my head back the fabricator stopped working on my car!! he has had it for over a year and nothing!! i practically put a gun to Dales head to get my cylinder head back but it was pointless because the fabricator is just taking on other work while my junk rust away...

Hot wheels- what did it take for him to finally finish it up and send it back? Constant pestering?

Yep ask for a date. I think i called once a week. It seems he is more tooled up to do heads, maybe having him do the block is just to much?
