    Nothing new to report as Cam knows that Ive been working on my Blue Chevy II and that I need all the room I can get in my 2 car garage. So the Stang has been in the back of his shop.

    However, I went to his shop, met with him, gave him some more $$$$ and we came up with a plan to get it finished up.

    I will be switching over to a PG trans and a Drag radial, and Im hoping to join in on the fun in the NMCA 8.60 Index class, but not sure when Ill actually be competitive there. The car being "legal" to run in that class is more important at this time.






    He will be notching the wheel tubs as I want to keep the back seat and not do a full mini-tub but I will be running AFCO Coil-Over shocks and Im really testinghis skills as I told him I would like tailpipe(s) He said one is doable, but 2 will be a miracle! LoL!!
    So I guess we will see...

    Thanks Mike & Cameron getting me setback up with a New PW & Email as I switched computers and lost my old shit.

    Progress pics! Woot Woot!
    I dont think this will be out this year, but its cool to see work being done on it.

    He is going to cut off 1/4- 1/2" off each side to get these to tuck up under here






    He is also going to be moving the Anti-roll bar so that the exhaust can run out to the bumper and Ill be running coil-overs.



    Im wanting to keep the back seat, so he is doing a "mini" mini-tub








    Thanks for tuning in.

    Cam has the Mini-Mini tubs installed, but he still has to finish weld & seam-seal it, but its looking good!






    My Afco shocks should be in this week as well, so he should be able to start on that process as well.
    He also told me that he cut 3/8" off of each side of the rear end, so that the tires are tucked under the fender better.
    Im hoping that we can get the exhaust up and over the rear end as I want to run the exhaust out to the rear bumper.

    I cant wait to get this home and get it running/fired up again!

    I plan on keeping the factory style fuel tank, but Cam still has to make room for the coil overs...



    He went ahead and seam-sealed & painted the tubs...











    Rear-end is getting prep'd for coil over mounts and another round of shortening. (1/4" on each side)



    Stay tuned...

    Cam didnt like the look of the rear tires in the rear quarters, so he whacked another 1/2" off the rear ends and re-installed the rear....







    Looks like we will have to do some trimming to the Glenns Tank, but Im liking the looks of it all.

    The guys at Circle D gave me a smoking deal on a TQ converter, so I jumped at it...



    Theres some sexy billet going on with this dude.




    The coil overs were going to be a PITA to adjust with the factory fuel tank, so Cam and I talked and now he is going to build a custom tank. Which in turn, lead us to go ahead and replace the upper TQ boxes as well.









    Nothing like tearing apart a perfectly good running car....

    We are a Dealer for them, so I figured I might as well spend the money now.
