Thanks!

The first plan is to document the process from BIW to roller. After that, I should have a better idea of which class I want to aim for. Budget will be a deciding factor.

Job one will be getting rid of the seam sealer and sound deadener throughout the body. We will also remove a good bit of metal that is no longer required.

Rick will be cutting out the metal (because he is the guy that has to fix the mess!).




Roger, clearing out the trunk.




Me, mostly running my mouth!

To delete the mirrors on the doors these holes have to be filled.




If you look real hard in this photo you can see a small tack weld that ties the door skin to the inner shell. If you don't do this the door will warp.




The filler plate. (The pencil points at the tack weld)




A little bit of filler and some sanding......

What's up Daren! Where's the Mich Ultra, lol?

How are going to race 2 COPO's? I really really REALLY like that n/a 350 cube engine. 4.125" bore and a 3.25" stroke. It seems that everyone gets the 427 engine.

The 350 looks pretty good. I think you will see a few racing next year.
