Been busy on the car, just not much that shows up big in photo's. The passenger side glass, is in, along with the windshield. Still have the rear glass, and driver side to install. Attached is the passenger door, inside the car.
I'm HOPING to test the car, the weekend after Labor Day. Still a bunch to do, but it's getting closer.
This last weekend, I painted, wet sanded, and buffed the trunk lid, and got it installed. Last night the rear window was installed, and I have the steering almost 100% completed. About the only things left to do, are finish the driver side door glass, and door panels, bleed the brakes (which HEMI Joel is helping with tomorrow), install the drive shaft, drivers seat, and install my old hood from my other car for now, and it's ready for the race track.
As Joel said, I got the car finished, and took it out for its first pass on s dragstrip in 40 years. It went very well with only a couple of minor hiccups, but overall it was a huge success. The car runs dead straight, and works well. I made 6 passes total, and every one except the first checkout pass, was in the nine second range. My best pass came first round of eliminations on Sunday, with a 9.72 @ 138mph. Too bad my day was done with a -.008 redlight.
Looks excellent, Jeff! I love that there's just barely any front tire on the ground at launch - perfect! You'll be running low 1's before you know it. Mutt does like 18 seconds in the 1/8th - NOT a drag car.
