I usually start with the fan in front of the car, once the radiator is cooled down then I move the fan to the engine.

The sparks looked like they were coming from right around the rear end. Its very strange. I watched it probably ten times trying to see.

found the source of the sparks

the bigger bolts used on the driveshaft were hitting some bracing when the car was squatting. it appears that they have gone ahead and clearanced themselves for me lol.

also found one spot on the new driveshaft rubbing on the tunnel, so I'm going to give that a little clearance also.

here are some pics.

its was only the second pass on the new set-up, give it some time. I have a set of 17" welds already in the garage for it.

Has nothing to do with it being a street car. It has to do with safety. Plenty of street cars have cages.
