Workshop floors painted. Shows up everything else that needs a spit polish, now to sterilize the rest.

Cheers.

I see a new board coming!! Been busy with HVAC and bringing the Chassis to a 7.50 spec. Thought it would be a piece of cake but after 20' of 1 5/8" and 20' of 1 1/2" and 10' of 1 and 20' of 1/2" I think we are ready to certify.. Going from a sportsman 8.50 to a 7.50 is a trip in a small car like my 33 Willys. There is no room to make it like the SFI papers want it with flat X bars and such. So we improvised and have plenty to get certified for 7.50. Could even be advanced et if the frame was chrome molly but it is .120" mild. Car ran C/Gas until the first race when the 15 year old 377 lost it's guts after 14 years. Ran 9.50's at 140ish. New 403 with everything I can throw at it this year and should run B/Gas with no problem. Lots of pics If you want more let me know.
