Hey Harry,

It looks like we're going to need to step up a little around here, these Nova guys are getting serious about their stuff.

Guess they know what their up against with us Camaro guys and need to step things up huh... :smt005 :smt005

Chris, I agree with Harry, I like the look of things, can't wait to see it done, but it's going to be weird seeing your car in all one color......

Wish the Camaro's would be that easy to hang a window, I hate those frame kits!
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

Thanks Bruce,
But it hasn't been with a lot of hard work to get all the fiberglass stuff to fit right. Nothing fit and I have a lot of time in fixing it all. It's coming along nicely and we will be putting paint on it at the end of June. I'm not getting in a hurry so everything is right.


Oh, and you Camaro guy's need to get with the program!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: AND the Vette guy!!!!
Just say-n !!!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Looking good, Chris. :thumb:

That new shelf on the back will be great for tail-gating in the pits. I can just see it now, a place to set up the pickles, potato chips and hamburger fixings for all the racers in the pits. You are such a thoughtful guy, helping everyone out like that :thumb: :mrgreen:

I was thinking the same thing Harry, what happened to Chris?
Must be all the pressure of trying to build a machine that will keep up with the Camaro's but you are right though, that rear shelf will be a good place to put all of the food on while he watches the Camaro's go to the final round.... :smt005 :smt005

Hey Chris, things do look good. You going to paint the rear shelf body color or keep as is?

I'd say leave as is or John might think you trying to copy him because he painted his.... lmao2: lmao2: lmao2:

Just joking.....I say paint it body color.

Looks good buddy. Can't wait to see it done.

Ok ok!!!! Don't forget to get a beer out of the ice chest that is under the wing...... LOL :smt003 :smt003 :smt003 :smt003 You guy's are kill'en me.

Thanks guy's! I'm glad you all like it. :thumb:
I can't tell you Bruce what color the wing will be!!!! It's privileged information at this time. BUT I think you guy's will like it. :bling: :bling: :bling:

Building one is a lot cheaper than buying one. $550.00 + shipping for the one I wanted or about $250.00 to build it my self... I based it off the Tim McAmis wing. It's a nice wing but I saved a lot of money building it my self.

I'm surprised you didn't make one out of carbon fiber since you work with that stuff all the time.

You did a nice job.

I think you and John should make templates and post them for us, so we don't need to go through all the hassle of guessing at dimensions....LOL

I say body color and run the stripes off the trunk lid onto the wing.
