    Thanks bud, Im slowly chipping away at all the little stuff to do on the frame, I can not wait to see the chassis on the deck so that I can start the channel on the body!

    LD whats up bud! Im trying to keep a good pace on this so that I can hopefully bring it out to the next World Run. A few of the Devils Brigade were talking about heading north to Ohio, Detroit, and then Chicago to Route 66 for World Run out to Cali and trying to scoop up as many Road Devils along the way, how bad ass would that be to have all of us headed out west on Rt66?

    Gramps whats up Brotha! Had a dam good time out at the Jalopy Showdown Drags and can not wait to see you all again. maybe next time Ill trainer up the old Dodge and make a few passes down the track just for fun! The stuck throttle linkage was kinda nerving but a fun ride for sure and a good story to tell!

    Seriously though, that's a pretty sweet build you have going there man. That intake is titties too...
    I love me some multi carbs on anything! It took me a good min to find that 4 x 2 intake, but I have been wanting to do a hidden EFI set up on an old Moon or Hillborn Injection!

    Got me a small lathe this weekend, it hs a 9" swing and 31" bed. Nick thank you much, it will get put to good use for sure! Got it unloaded and set up today, the first batch of parts are for my brake pedal assy. Nick and I are working on designing and building a clutch and brake pedal setup, I'm doing a manual clutch and non boost brake, hes doing a non boost brake and hyd clutch. Will keep the picks flowing.

    Well I finally decided to do a small 4" Z in the rear, I wasn't happy with the prior ride height so it had to get cut and dropped. Next is getting one of my old 32 axles out for a healthy 4 inch drop!
    Also got the bushings made for the brake pedal assy....

    And the front suspension is all mounted and solid, motor is back in for mockup so I can make the tranny mount and fit the engine mounts. Gonna make the rear arms and axle brackets this week and this weekend finally get the body on and see about making a subfloor......

    Got two of the six bungs turned out, I would have bought bought them but I got a killer deal on the 3/4-16 LH heims so I kinda had to. This weekend I should have the rear arms built and the chassis on the deck!

    I reworked the rear bones and modified them so that the rear mounting points are in line along the length kinda the way the 35-36 rear radius rods are.
