I think we might pull it out of the tag trailer later on today. We just went and got another trailer and stuffed all the debris in it. We have not even looked at it yet. We were all kind of in shock after the crash. Have to take a close look. We allready have a body for the next car. Just have to see what to do next, re-build the Vette or the next car. In the mean time we will have to bring the 38 Chev out of retirement.

Thanks! I'm assuming you are running the 4.5/28-17. How do they feel with the Hoosiers on the back? I have to get rid of the fronts....finally! The radial in the front and the bias in the rear is suicide @ 135 mph.

They felt find at 116 mph. I noticed them a little on the first pass with them. Only cause I was anticipating it a bit. Yes that size sounds right. I have 4.5 " Bogarts on the front.

Cool. Might be eaiser just to go to Youtube. My channel is (Mercuryman96). There all there and then some. The Boss has already ordered a new CF front body from Jeffers. So it will be full speed a head on re-building the Vette from the firewall foward. It will get dragged out of the trailer today and put on the hoist.

Have one for me......no over serving though.

Finally got around to installing the BMR LCA brackets. Not a big deal, but you have to kinda hold your tounge right to wiggle the bracket in with the bolts in and get the nuts started. If you tape the bolts to the bracket it helps.

Just a footnote to the BMR LCA brace. Once you have secured the the carriage bolts to the bracket with tape, you have to wiggle it in from the inboard end of the LCA.
