Post by vcv8273 on Sat 20 Feb 2016, 12:13 pm

Hi this will be my next major build which I will be basically scratch building everything for it. Have already scratch built the tubs and have opened up the firewall to fit one of the revell duel plug dragster hemi motors in. The rest of it is in mock up at the moment but gives an idea how the build will look. Cheers and thanks for looking. Any comments welcome.

Will be working on this one over winter and hopefully will have it finished by the end of the year. Started on the roll cage using the original center loop and scratched up the rest with still more to go. Also finished the firewall recess to be able to fit the hemi in. Will post progress while I go along. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve
