Latest update on my project.

Even though I can't make to the Tech Seminar, I am putting my time off to good use. Here's the latest photo I took today. I have a few loose ends to tie up. I'm waiting on my rear wing from Jerry Bickel, some minor wiring to finish up, and I decided to make me a custom aluminum dash, and then it's a complete tear down for finally, finally, paint and powder coat.

It's a primer my brother put on it. Charlie must be behind the turd green thing :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: . We are going to paint it black. I'm no artist, but here is a sneak peek of a photo I was playing around with in one of my photo programs. The purge tubes for the nitrous system will exit out his nostrils.

No offense taken Kim! Believe me, it's been a long row to hoe. I've had several drag cars in the past and this is my last chance to build something that I've always wanted but never had the money to do it. I'm not getting any younger so this will probably be my last hoorah!
