thanks Jonathan!

 

hey Chas, It is fun and challenging at the same time, thanks bro

 

hey John, yea it is 1 piece, I made a template and transferred it to the brass, cut it out and used parallels in the vice for a metal break, and a drill rod to form the hump, still not sure how I'm going to get all of this together, I have to be careful or I will paint myself into a corner, I lost the instruction's, can't seem to find them :huh:

lost the instructions for the kit? this kits been out so much in different versions mainly the stock version but the instructions should be easy to find online if thats what you mean. This thing is just too awesome who needs instructions when you can go online and find reference photos on every inch of the car. My dad did that for his hemi cuda and a ta challenger that he just randomly stopped working on after getting it 90% done.

I got to see the MIGHTY HEMI again today, and the chassis for the first time today! The chassis is every bit as wicked as the motor going in it!!! It's gonna be radical when it's done!!! Trust me on that one. :-)

Used a vise as a sheet metal press. Makes sense! Beautiful results. I'll have to practice this next. ;) What I'd give to see this build, in any state of assembly, in person. Geeeez.... :o

Keeping an eye on this thread brings back the hatred discussion I had with my Mom when she made me pick Business Admin and Finance over Engineering...
