Thank you Jeff.

 

 Ok, i was able to get the engine mounted and the  oil system completed tonight. I scratch built an oil filter to replicate the System 1 replaceable element filter, the oil system is plumbed just like the 1:1 would be. the exit on the oil tank is underneath the tank but it should be on the front side, I didn't take that into consideration and made my steering rack to close to the tanks. won't make that mistake on the next one, i also made and added the fire nozzles and line.  I hope to have the fuel system done,intake mounted and front suspension one by end of the weekend. I also have the front brakes on the way from Jim (micronitro) Big thanks to Dave (comp1839) for help with the oil system.

 

Used Protech line and RB motion fittings.

Me too! If I didn't know they were decals, I would be sure that Joe had used somekind of mini-welding machine. :D

 

The oil system looks excellent to me, just like in 1:1 cars! This is absolutely inspiring build, keeps me going. Thanks for sharing it.

Joe.... man this build is off the hook. killer detail. it is inspiring to see the engine mounted along with the killer detail on the oil system. I cant wait to get to this point with my funny car build although I am getting close to being able to get the chassis in paint.

I am also working on getting those pics out to you as well. I apologize it has taken me longer than it should.

Well had a little set back with the fuel system with regards to the fuel pump, So i'm working with someone now to try and get one made.  I decided to get the front suspension on and steering done, The wheels are not attached yet since i still need to do the brakes, I have some lamb front brakes coming from Jim. I figured i would get some pictures with all the wheels on and the rear section of body.

Joe this build is looking sick! Man am I loving it. That chassis just looks mean. Love the pic with the body on too, makes it look fast. This is an outstanding build. It sure looks nice. Keep on doing what you are doing cause it's beautiful.
