          Great to see a local person's work. Sorry I don't go to the show any more after they forget to judge my '34 Ford,  and were asking contestants to be judges.


           Your scratch building talent is quite impressive. You are right in the heart of dirt and Super modified Country. Keep up the great work.

It not racing until you race on Dirt.

        Paul, Seth, and Michael---it's nice of  you guys to take the time to respond to my "build,"  I appreciate it.



        My progress is slow and steady. I sometimes go back to make corrections. I realized that all brake and and battery lines should be lined

in braid, so I used a Turner spring product. I re-routed the brake and fuel lines. I am still not sure how to plumb my front brakes, because I have

working steering from the steering wheel. Any drag or resistance gives it a problem. I plumbed the fuel cell and made a chute and bracket. Going to make a single bottle fire suppression system for engine,driver and fuel cell. I have also been trying to find on the Drag racing Forums, additional fuel pumps for 392 Hemis, location. Made a tranny blanket still need to make the belts.


         Any assistance would be appreciated.


         Here are some images. Thanks for viewing.

          I use as a soldering surface, Pyroceram Glass that can with-stand over 1000 degrees. You can get tweezers that hold brass pipes from some hobby shops or mail order.(Micro Mart does have them) . If you want to invest, I would look into Resistance Soldering.

Here is a site you might want to check out.
