Wayno, I also know you have been working on this for a long time. Can you give some of us newer guys a bit of the backstory? How you got involved with Jack. The story about the tank/molds and how this car came to be?

That puts a whole new 'twist' on sitting in the car, and making vroom-vroom noises! evil

Don't you mean ɯooɹʌ ɯooɹʌ ɯooɹʌ ɯooɹʌ

Did anyone mention that if you wanted to build a tank like Wayno's , you only have to ask and he can supply you a fiberglass tank body
and a couple of frame rails that match the curve of the tank

!2'8" and 36" diameter. It's a proper P-38. I also have 20" extension panels since you asked about the length. Wayno

Two holes about 3/8" diameter. One in each cylinder about 4 1/2" down the bore. Right now I'm thinking about sleeving them to get through the season. Not sure yet. Wayno
