also made a cover for the rear end coupler and an anti rotation mount for the axle as well as a bracket for the indent cable from the th350 im using.also got to finally take the new trailer out round the block for a tow!

made the exhausts ,once i had made the flanges i decided i didnt like them so trimmed them down with the plasma cutter,they look much better now!i am lucky in that at work we have a jd2 tube bender that we use to fabricate handrails for the liftcars that we build so i can do my own bends ! they were tricky to get the same both sides(angles etc) but are ok i guess,just need the heat marks cleaning off and polishing and are good to go!

hi guys,got a bit more done! my brother antony popped by last week with a scoop that he had made for me ! well pleased with it! thats on the engine now which i had mocked up in the chassis so i could sort the throttle and fuel shut off cables which is complete now,also i made some stainless elbows to mount on the valve covers to attach the breather hoses to! that was my step forward,then found out that one of my axle shafts was bent so had to order a new set of strange shafts which i hadnt budgeted for!!!! so a big step back but will keep going!! :D

hi guys,got some more done! added the helmet bars and welded up the rollcage(thanks to Bill Felstead for bending the tubes) also chocked the chassis up to ride height and positioned rears so as to see what the car looked like rolling and i am very happy with it! hopefully the axle shafts will be here soon so i can get the axle built ! still have the interior seat panel to do and then the body,once that is done i can dry build the car and then strip it to have the chassis and body painted!! target is a rwyb then dragstalgia,hopefully!! :D
