  • What state of disrepair is your DW entry in at this point?

    A Minnesota bird reminded me a few days ago that we only had 138 days to go...guess I need to get things rolling a little quicker...is anybody else in this state or am I the only one?

    engine is out and close to garage door - had to remove it to get the headers coated plus trans & GV out to fit the new SFI case shield

          engine block is off getting cleaned along with the heads.

          Tranny needs to be gone over yet. and i need to have a drive shaft built, and decide on my rear end situation...

          hoping its all together by august 1st for a month of cruising and shakedown testing.

                parts still being shipped in, block at machine shop, transmission all over one bench, two tractors to fix before I can make room for the ride to get in and start on roll cage, and planning on testing in mid June and a road trip or two before Sept. (Plus the gray primmer needs covering, time permitting). Other than that, no worries. (entry fee paid and Hotels booked)
                Drag Week 2012 (wet paint and no transmission but finished) Drag Week 2013 Daily Driver finished in middle of pack (again) Drag Week 2014 #56 of 126 Daily Drivers. (getting closer to the 32)

                        ah, forgive me Doug. Not sure how I confused the two...

                        --and watch the tranny / rear end talk like ksj2 said


                        Glad to see I'm not alone, hopefully the headers will be back within a couple weeks. I should have the rear and trans together and back in place by then.

                          Had to pull the converter out of my turbo truck, to send back and be restalled. The first track outting wasn't all that enlightening with a converter that flashes 1000 rpm below the cam's lower powerband.

                              according to BBR's comment on my last picture, mine looks like a dismembered Robby the Robot. I guess that should cover it.
