thanks Mike, I cant wait to see them in person. I did a little tonight. with the boys playing lacrosse now (hockey just finished) I stay pretty busy lol. I sized up the cage, worked on that headliner idea and filled some ejector pin marks and sink holes on the chassis. I also filled in the notch for the brake booster as it will have manual brakes. I think I am going to take out the molded pedals and add the nicer unit from the charger kits.

well I have an update. the prochargers rolled in a couple days ago but I just got fabbing up a bracket now. its going to be tight but it will fit. still have not decided on the dominator or a efi intake like the edelbrock ram intake.

a little more done on the bracket. had to trim the inner fender where the battery was to get the blower to fit. not uncommon with the big housing prochargers. little more shaping and add the tensioner and that part should be ready.

the blower bracket is finished. I used pictures of the 440 dodge bracket on the procharger website and went from there. I made the tensioner from aluminum then slipped some sprue inside and drilled it for a styrene rod to mount it. I countersunk the face a bit to make it look a bit better. it has the idler screw on the top and I made a nut from styrene. it will look better painted I hope. it was a fair bit of work.

Thanks guys. Mike, when you give me pure art to work with I try and make the full package pop. The bracket turned out good. Would be nice if there was a way to reproduce it. I want the engine to be the focus of the car
cast the bracket...... would be easy enough

That prochargers looking good, that mount looks very clean . did you scratch that intake or buy it somewhere?
