Project 1/16th scale Newstalgia Dragster

To keep my sanity doing customer cars, I have decided to start a personal project. I have started a 1/16th scale Newstalgia dragster. Here is the start and I will add more as work on it. This is a jig I made to do a customer car awhile back and got it out of the cobwebs. I am doing this chassis using 3/32 tubing, I have the first side started and will get the other side done soon. Then I will start putting the 2 sides together.

Here is a start.

Got a little more work on the dragster today. Got the other side done and started putting it together. Got a mocked up fuel tank and a dummy motor set in for alignment .

Thanks guys. Charlie I will be using Pro Tech hardware on this build. Bill the jig has made building the dragster chassis alot easier. Chris thanks buddy just need to do a little for myself, 18 cars in 2 years for customers and just need a break.
