Hi guys, started on my next drag project. Plan is to build a 140" mid sixties style dragster. Kellison frame, 392 with the Tampa dump stance and chute pack body work. Got started on the chassis and some of the components. The seat has been made from aluminum sheet and upholstered in diamond trim, seat belts are ProTech. I'll post more pics next week.

This is starting to shape up very nicely! Your builds are always fantastic to see, I can't wait for more. So far the work with that frame and rear axle looks cool. :P

Beautiful work. What's the basis for the front half of the bodywork? The combination works out really nicely - very sleek lines. The chassis, I assume, is all styrene. What diameter rod did you use (.080"?). It scales to the eye perfectly.
