Mike, here's a picture of the turbo next to the flashpoint BAE hemi. They are the 2-1/2" turbos, bummer is the detail isn't as good as it was on the larger ones but they are still nice, hard to get good pictures of it with my Iphone, I really need to invest in a good camera.

Bart, Here are some more pictures of the cage and the seat mount setup. Kinda hard to see in these pictures.

I am with everyone else... I think Joe has done an outstanding job for his first full blown chassis job!.... Even I am learning as he shows his work. :D

I saw the Video Tim (TDR) put up on Youtube on how to clean and prime the parts. He was using the 4.5" Turbo and they looked like they had A LOT of Detail! That is a shame it doesn't scale down to keep that.

Can't wait to get the Keith Black Hemi block and Heads from TDR. My plan is to use it as a model for my own Brad Anderson aluminum block... we will see how it goes. If I don't like it, at least I can resort to using the block with some modifications after speaking with Dave to make it look like a BAE.

Thx. for all the compliments guys, It makes the build that much better to me. I'm trying to find some pictures of the Brake master cylinder setup for the brakes along with the hand brake setup, Not really finding anything. If anybody has any pictures of that and could share that would be great. I will have another update tonight since i played hookie from work today lol.

looks good! Haven't seen a turbo build in a while... Are you gonna mount the turbos behind the front wheels or out front?

Only got a little work done, Made the Drive shaft tunnel. Used some K&S sheet and Plastruct .060" rod, I drilled some holes in the chassis and glued the hoops in and the tunnel itself is removable. Hope to have some more updates later tonight. it's been slow going but i'm making some progress lol.

joe, you wanted master cyl. mounting shots? where did you want the master cyl. to mount? in front of the firewall. high or low? behind the fire wall under the drivers feet?

bart, just so you know. TDR doesn't sell a keith black block. they sell a std hemi block. if i get time and tim wants to model a keith black block. it is on my list of "wants" but, as of now you'll be modifying a std. hemi block to look like a BAE.

Dave:

Either under the drivers feet or behind the firewall, Also do they use the same master cylinder for the handbrake and do all promods run a handbrake? I'm more into the outlaw cars my promod knowledge isn't so great.

yes, typically it is the same master cyl.. no, not all pro mod cars run hand brakes. a lot of guys find staging a clutch car easier with a hand brake. it all depends on your driving style. i sent y6ou a p.m..

Thanks for clarifying that for me, once I get back Mid week my plans are to begin working on my own mock up until the block arrives.

Joe very nice job on bending that Tunnel yourself. What did you use to get the curve and how did you finally get it to stay together without struggling with it popping apart? LOL

The tunnel looks great... I also want to know how you bent it, I might try it on my build.

Thx. Guys, Can't tell you all my secrets. J/K lol, I used the end of a X-acto knife and bent it around it by hand. i did the top first to get a nice bend, Then i did the bottom and bent on half then the other. The bottom over laps a 32nd", the tin holds it's shape nice so it doesn't pop apart. I got my brake and clutch pedal mount and pedals done. this tiny stuff is very tedious and time consuming. gonna do the hand brake tommarrow.

Man Joe!!!! I am so impressed with your work!!!

So just to clear up my confusion.. the seam on the tunnel is then on the bottom or the passengers side? And will you be putting the wrapped tubing on the bottom of the tunnel as well?
