Oh Boy!!! She's Lookin' SWEEEEET, Derrick! Lovin' the color on the frame. :wub:

After looking at that pic, I can't seem to get this song outta my head now... Goes a little somethin' like this:

"On the day I was born,, The nurses all gathered 'round,, And they gazed in wide wonder,, At the joy they had found..... Duh-Nunnuh-Duh-Nuh..."

Keep up the GREAT work! This baby is definitely BAD TO THE BONE!! B)

Derrick, this pic right here looks like the frame is sitting in a garage and someone is working on putting the rear end together. Very nice job on putting this together, the color on the frame looks great!

Looking pretty cool Derrick! By chance have you checked to make sure it will still fit between the frame rails? A lot of great detail, I would hate for you to take all that time and find out you will have to redo it. I really like that Aluminum line you bent, that looks sweet!

So hopefully someone can help me out here, and Derrick I see you have your valve covers mounted to the heads. I have been trying to figure out which way is the correct way to mount the heads up. To me, when I was looking at the heads and valve covers and I see Derrick has them mounted this was as well. The heads and Intake seem to fit and line up with the Intake for the blower. But...doesn't this mean the heads are upside down based on the taper on the Valve Covers? Should the heads with the taper go towards the top to match the valve covers?

I have been looking all over the NET trying to figure this 10 Million Dollar question out. i am puzzled.

So those of you with inquiring minds and have gone and purchased the 526 Hemi resin motor from Terry at Flashpoint motorsports... AS you see it on Derricks awesome build up of his motor is the correct way to place the heads and valve covers.

Derrick.... It's great to see you back here. I sure have missed updates on your build. Your motor is looking great and that detail is off the hook. Keep up the great work and look forward to more on this build.

Derrick, can I ask what material you used to make the drivebelt in front of the engine ?

The belts on the blower apear small tie raps ?

Thanks for answering.

The belt came from a die cast car.
