Looks great Chris, I like the colors. Now that you have it painted finally quit being such a stranger and check in from time to time!

What else you got to do in order to get it to the track again? I see the engine is out.

Thanks for the nice comments guy's. I really do hope you all like it. The paint is called Satin Nickel and Tuxedo Black. The wing is also black. It's been a long road to get to this point but it's finally done.... The motor is out getting a freshening up of sorts, nothing major. Also have a brand new PTC glide going in. I should have it back together next week.
We are going to run a Pro 5.80 class without nitrous and a 5.00 class with nitrous. My car weighs 340 lbs less than it did and should cover those times good enough to be competitive. I do have more nitrous going on for support....

I am not really sure what the question is, but I am pretty sure the answer is Big Block.
