California Charger F.E.D. update


Recommended Posts

I can't believe I havent seen this kit before, after all the snooping I have done on the net, sometimes starting with an original kit makes it a lil more special to me, thanks for the info Terry! I see we are practically neighbors

We met in Columbia last year. I was the one talking to you about the Fiat.

found a video---don't know how to load it but if you google 1971 Supernationals, and load the part 2 with Dick Landy, go to 3:20 seconds and then to 5:30 seconds you will get to see the car at the first race with the full nose, polished blower,valve covers and chrome headers---However, it was actually 1970!!!!

Sorry Bill, I could think of nothing better to say but echo Dave's thoughts. B)

A pure joy to watch such craftsmanship evolve into a thing of beauty. Nuff said. Great work.

Bill ..... Beautiful work man. This think is looking killer. Hey is your cogg belt from Mcmaster carr?? Keep up the great work on this.

hey Chris, thanks bro, a friend gave me the belt, ita a replacement belt for the little chop saw, it is too thick and stiff really, I had a hard time with it, not real happy with the way it came out, don't know if I should address it or leave it, it was too wide to begin with had to narrow it a bit
