On Sunday, Double A Bob spent sometime on the mill removing a couple of inches from 3 Trick Flow intakes to build blower manifolds. I'll have after photos next week.

You can't order a set of AA/FA headers for a 460 so Jeff is building us a set.

The chassis is off the jig as of Saturday night (S- A -T -U -R- D -A -Y Night). Sorry that's a little Bay City Rollers reference.

Monday Van and I got the Mark Williams 9 inch housing on the chassis and ready for mocking up the rear wheels to set the width.

We did some machining on the Mark Williams 9 inch and got it in the car. Next is to set the width of the rear wheel spacing.

Sunday was spent getting the steering set up. We got the new Strange spindles mounted and cross rod built along with the steering box mounts built. We then got all four tires mounted on the wheels.
