Doors save about 100 lbs? Paint looks good.

I just traded some stuff for a pair of fiberglass doors. I'd like to use stock hinges, latches and door handles if I can find a couple junk doors to pull the hardware from.

Very nice sir....very nice... :thumb: :thumb:

Seems so weird to see it all in one, sorry two colors, after all these years but the wait was worth it.
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

It looks killer. But I so miss the Frankenstein look.

Well, we got the car out and did some testing on Sunday and I got to tell ya it ran flawlessly!!!!!!! With the 300+ lbs off of it it went from running 6.20's to 5.90's on motor and with a 300 shot of N2O it went 5.30's. With the bigger pills we should get it in the low .20's maybe even teens. I don't like the converter that's in it and feel like the converter is still holding it back. The new trans and shiftnoid worked perfectly. Had 1 misshap with the nitrous on the last pass and burned a spark plug so we called it a night. All in all it was great to get the car out and make hits with it. Felt really good to be driving again....... :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Even got a cool pic of the car leaving.

Good news besides the plug! Looks like it's leaving real nice too! I assume you didn't spray it the whole pass?

That's what I figured, that means that 5.30's just the tip of the iceburg. Might want to tighten up those front shocks a bit before you do that one haha.
