Hello All,

Started this build last May and it fought me all the way but I kept pushing along to get her done. I made some modifications which I removed some of the inner fender wells, used parts box seats and big block engine,scratch built the roll bar, modified the rear suspension, plumbed all the brake lines and added front drilled rotors,scratch built brake calipers,scratch built the fuel pump,scratch built the radiator support with a parts box radiator ,used Pro Tech braided lines and fittings, Speed City Resin wheels, stacks, intake, valve covers ,timing chain cover and tires, (Thank you Scott) wired the engine and modified the fire wall , scratch built the tranny mount,added seat belts and Thank You Michael at Best Model Car parts for the dash speedo and clock inserts. Not one of my better builds but it is finally done and I would also like to thank Whoopiekat Decals for the custom Blind Rage Decals.

Thank you for taking a look !
