    Thanks I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

    No progress to report other than drilling the holes for the k frame. I am currently working on a 2005 Dodge ram tailgate at the moment, gotta make some $$.
    I really want to get this car completely done this spring. Not only do I want to take it to the track, but I'm sick of carrying it out of the garage like a wheel barrow when I have side work!

    PAINT!!

    I got the trunk and wing painted tonight!! Now I'm going to bed, it's 2:15 and I gotta be up for work at 5:30.





    Edit: I'll get a better pic of the trunk lid tomorrow. There must have still been a lot of over spray mist in the air.

    I have had some side work so not much progress to report but here it is. I bent up the cradles for the radiator bushings and finished welding new mounting tabs on the fuel cell at work.
    I decided that the front fenders aren't worth my time to repair, so I ordered two new ones for $48.75 each. I also started working on the driver's side door.

    My goal is to have it's maiden voyage at the "Jet Car Nationals" at WIR on July 23.

    Me too! I can't wait to start painting it. As for the parking lights, I'm going to put a plate behind them and eliminate them.

    I couldn't resist throwing a door and the hood on it!

    Looking good. Does the hood fit right or is it not the right one for the bumper cover?

    Thanks! As for the hood there is no header panel behind the bumper cover. I still have to fab up some brackets to support the top of the cover.

    Yes I am. The money from the GT is going towards a new air compressor as my old one started itself on fire a while back. Also the guy that i work for on the side is moving out of his garage and into a building. I will be able to do all my work for him there and not have to do it at my place.

    I do have some progress to report, before the death of my compressor I got the hood and both doors in high build primer and the drivers door is blocked out!
