Dr K, Way to hit one out of the Ball Park! What a great build and thinking outside the box. A match race with this car and the Flying Dutchman back in the day would have filled the stands ! Absolutely Fantastic..........
Michael, The tins look awesome!!! Great tutorial on pattern making! I use this technique on 1:1 on a regular basis, no wasted material...... Only one large part of the build left...................... I can smell it!! Cheers Jimmy "RASS"
Michael, Things are progressing on the Altered, I think it's going to happen!! In preparation I renewed my Top Alcohol license in August (it's been expired for 25 years) This picture was taken at the time of cockpit fitting. A great time was had by all who attended the school!! For a old fart I can still spank the loud pedal pretty good!
Michael, Now your just showing off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol. Seriously, The more I look the more detail I find!!!! This thing is so off the hook, simply gorgeous................ Care to share what the body color will be? Peace,
All I can say is perfect!!!!! I'm so glad you didn't paint the frame in a exotic color. IMO your eyes would have been drawn to the paint vs the beauty of the build and artisanship. Another home run my friend!!! Jimmy "RASS"
I would like to endorse and encourage all to check this suppliers offerings. I was turned onto this site by 10thumgs (Michael) CHECK his thread out!!!!! The parts are outstanding!!!!! After I placed the order I got a email from Scott asking me what I was going to build!!!!! How many suppliers have you purchased from who took the effort to contact you!!!! Great Supplier!!!! Great Parts!!!! Great People!!!! What's not to like about that! Jimmy "RASS"
Michael, Looking great..... I love everything about this build!!!! fantastic................ It's a shame more people are not following this build as it is by far one of the most unigue builds on the site. Your skills are a gift from a higher power!!!!! IMO this build is a combination of Old School and Modern day parts or a Nostalgia Car (correct ?) which brings me to the oiling system. Modern Day Fuel Cars are nothing more than a spec series today! Back in the day it was run what you brung!!!!! I applaud you for your artist license and freedom on the build, it truly brings back the spirt of what Drag Racing used to be. As a former 1:1 pilot of one of these wicked beasts (1970s) the only rules we had were safety rules and those were pretty much a joke compared to what they have today in modern fuel cars. There is no wrong way to plumb a system as long as the fluids are getting back to the source and doing their job. Back in the day their were so many combinations, it made your head spin, however that was the fun and spirt of the sport then. Keep doing what you are doing and please keep sharing and showing us the way with your AWESOME SKILLS!!!!! Jmmy "RASS" P.S. Thanks so much for the endorsement of Futurattraction parts! I placed a order with them upon your recommendation and placed another today! They are simply Awesome!!!!
Michael, Your skills continue to amaze me, I have learned so much by following your builds, Thank you for sharing! The Futrattraction parts look get!!! I think we are all looking for quality parts when doing a build, only to be disappointed when we get the parts. Based on your skill set if you say they are great parts I'm all in. I think you showed real class by endorsing a quality vendor to help us all improve our builds (order on the way Scott) I will continue to follow this awesome build!!!! "Fuel Altereds Forever" Jimmy "RASS" P.S. Package resent today! I hope it doesn't boomerang back to my door step again!
