Sounds like there will be a second one built. It should go a bit faster now that we have the body molds and a lot was learned from the first one. Not that anybody is keeping track, but a project like this should take about 500 hrs and 800 hrs. for a door car.

Chute mounts are done and were working on the adjustable headrest. Waiting on the third member to come off the jig from having axel tubes cut and backing plated welded. Once we get that back the driveshaft tunnel can be done and shifter mount can be welded to the tunnel.
