Why hide all this under a body? See if you can get a can of Clearview 2000 :)

Take the "big ruler" out of the pics, and it looks like it jumped out of the Summit Racing catalog... :-)

Still lots of work and loose ends to tie up visible in these shots. But I have been making progress, and lots of hardware and fasteners, and doing a lot of wiring and plumbing...

That reminds me, are you going to GSL in April Mark? Im going to try and save up the funds to fly out there. It will be tough with college, but I'd love to meet you and take a ride in this Seven.

And the headlights are ready to be mounted. SMS Hi-Def C/F on the rims... There are bulbs in them, but they don't light up.

More scratchbuilding and machining. Been working on the new dash for the Super Seven. More specifically the gauges right now. They are going to be Auto Meter. I'm working on the internals now. More later...

Here is the gauge set I made for the Super 7, in no particular order. Auto Meter Ultralite series. Everything is scratchbuilt. I created the gauge faces and the needles are parts, not decals...

Here is a shot of one of the smaller ones and it's lens, (machined from 1/4 inch thick acrylic sheet):

And the "Arm Nitrous" dash switch...
