    Sorry no pictures but I must say this event gets better and better every year that I attend and its especially nice only having to drive a little over a mile to the event. I met a few more modelers this year which I hope its ok to call new friends and also was able to pick Johns (Teresi) brain on the Funny Car I'm attempting to build and also it's always good to see Art (Laski) to stock up on Pro Tech parts.

    Was able to get in a little bench time in this weekend so I scratch built two new rear upper and lower frame brackets that attach to the rear differential and I also finished scratch building the front brake calipers but I still need to clean them up a bit then drill the holes in them for the brake lines and  then shoot some primer on them then some color. Next will be to scratch build the brake caliper brackets that will attach to the front spindles so thats all for now. Sorry that the pictures are not that great and that they are not showing much detail on the calipers since I did add some detail of the pistons on the outside of them which you would able to see that they are 4 piston calipers.

    Well I have looked through my stash of parts and it looks like I will be scratch building a set of calipers for the rotors and the caliper brackets so its off to the bench !

    Was able to get in a little bench time this evening and I was able to get the front hubs built for the front rotors and they are drilled photo etched Detail Master brake rotors which are probably not the correct rotors for a Funny Car but they look good on her and to me. So next I will scratch build the brake caliper mounts and possibly scratch build the front calipers as well. I have also shot some primer on the Pro Tech ignition box's and the Pro Tech coil's and I will also have to scratch build the mounts for these as well.

    Thank you Scott & Bill !
    I have found a few reference photos of the front  caliper / brake system but the photos are of a later Funny Car I think so I will be tackling the front set up next.

    I have finished the under body bracing plus I have painted it stainless steel, the center of the wheels are painted and installed back into the wheels also, the rear brake caliper mounts are ready to be installed with the brake rotors  , I have drilled the caliper half's for the hard lines so next will be to paint them then install to the caliper mounts. I also have the rear end mocked up for fitment which it took a little modifying to get the So Real Tires to fit under the body and it's a little tight but looks good to me so next will  be to mock up the rear brake line and to scratch build the brake line fittings. If anyone has any reference photos of the brake system or where to look for the brake system online it would be greatly appreciated since I have not been able to locate any.
     Thank You For Following
