Oh yea!! Another epic Tyrone build in the making. I'm glued to my seat for this one and it'll even have a blower. I really like the looks of that sleek and swoopy FlashPoints body and especially the hood.

Thanks brad I love the way the hood looks on this one too.. can't wait to see how it will look with blower sticking out....

This will be interesting. That '57 Body looks good to me, and with your talents this is going to be awesome build. The frame looks very good so far. I have to say that I always enjoy watching your projects.

Tyrone, you're off to a cracking start man. B)
This should be an interesting build, and looking forward to seeing your approach at the "blower motor".
Good to see you're having a crack at the chassis, 100%......I know you won't disappoint man. :) ;)

The chassis is looking good Tyrone, can't wait to see more!. Henry, this is going to be Tyrone's first 100% scratch-built chassis & his first blown car, & I'm sure he will blow us away with it! (pun intended!)

Tyrone i noticed that you dont have tubing where the four link brackets are mounted. your brackets should be mounted to the chassis on the tubing. I hope you can understand what im trying to say heres the pic I noticed it in.

simple fix just put two pieces of tube in where the brackets are and mout the bracket to the tube and you'll be set. This will make your chassis stronger it will also make the rear end less likely to break off during handling. Keep up the fine work.

Hey Rom, thanks for catching that, but it's not finished.. I just had the 4 link mounts on to make sure the bars they attach to were at the right height, this will be all be corrected when I get home this evening... but thanks for catching that bruh....
