After a bit of a change in direction the big block Chevy engine that was set to go in new dimension (steel car) was brought in good faith seems to be a turd so we are going down different route With engine for it now having bit of clear out with bits we don't need and see where we get to, we are trying to make steel car as cheap to run as possible as dad is retired car is now rolling and steering ready for engine plate etc to be trimmed
Will try and keep almost weekly updates as moving a bit quicker now thanks for looking

Hi all now have the little cars all tied up got another little project with my brother to do over the winter as my hands have been tied with my " don't tell the wife" fuel car so not much to report but have put the spare engine together and going to come out with that first if all goes to plan, axle is being constructed at this moment in time and hopefully won't be to much longer gone for a chromolly fully floater 40spline etc etc and also have ordered a set of 16x11 pair of beadlocks and nostalgia specific tyres to keep in with the rules currently sanctioned on these cars in the states :D

Not too much to report but there has been progress new dimension is now all welded up almost mocked up and ready for making the body then going to paint really trying to push on with it just waiting on motor plate really then can have a good mock up picture,
"Don't tell the wife" fuel car is still on the jig as axle is only just starting its swim but most of the other parts are assembled ready to go in so should take shape pretty quickly hoping for a birthday Mock up picture then will be pushing to get in it this year
Will get some pics and keep you all updated
