John... You are welcome Brother!! I am excited to see you building this epic build I am grabbing my seat, some goodies and buckling up to watch this bad boy come to life popcorn3.gif . Also I am glad I was able to help you out, you know I am here for you Brother!! with anything on this build.  And remember I will make room on my shelf for this to sit next to my Army Vega Funny Car... ;) .  :P ... Sad thing is that you will probably finish this before I finish the Funny Car.... ROTFL.gif

John... My big brother this build is off to a great start. That chassis is looking killer. You are always impressing me with your builds. I am proud of you on this one. I can't believe you are almost done with the chassis. Put those Mini-me's to work I m already itching for another update....

Cool project.

His museum outside of Ocala Florida is awesome.

Actually it's two museums, one with the racing stuff and another building with restored cars and all kinds of neat old stuff.

If anybody is ever down that way you'd be really missing out in not going.

I have been there numerous times and he's been there when I was there twice.

Super nice guy, you have to just about yell for him to hear you though :)

I went in there just before I was to leave for Desert Storm and he came out from the work shop to talk to me and walk me around the place. He normally doesn't come out of the shop to "Visit" except on certain days but he probably spent a good hour and a half walking around with me.

Fantastic guy.

Leonard……..I use hollow tubing and run a medium gauge wire thru it………and it helps keep the bend in place……..thanks
