hi all,i decided to build myself a new car at the end of last year so sold my rolling chassis and trailer to a chap called keith miles,very nice bloke and hes gonna be out with it soon hopefully! Anyway i thought that i would try to do a build thread on here so here goes!
Before i could build the new car i had to have somewhere to put it so decided to construct myself a box trailer to keep it in and have somewhere to sleep in at the track so started the trailer in november at work and at the same time start to collect parts for the car which will be a 150" wb slingshot built to sfi 7.50 spec from cds,so far have most of the parts i need including a 350 sbc with homemade flying toilet fuel injection,th350,9" rear. i am going to fabricate as much of the car as i can to try to keep the costs down!heres some pics to start it off! :D wayne

put in some more tubes and fitted rear axle,it looks quite high in the chassis but as the bottom isnt kicked up it gives me room to fitted bits under the seat,with the size slicks im going to use i have a 3-4" ground clearance!
