I am really fond of the CNC plasma cutter. Having stuff that is symetrical is so nice. This last Sunday I worked a lot measuring and drawing prints.

My wife said if that stupid machine I've got was the reason we didn't get a new car this year then the least it can do is make me a pie dish.

I made her a pie dish.

A few more pics from the progress on the front suspension, seems like I'm always behind but the progress keeps rolling on.

Looks like the same Howe front frame I am using on the Breaking Wind car. What is your plan for the front shock/springs?

I've got an order in for some coil-overs from FOA. They should be ready soon and I'll post pics when I have them. They actually said they would sponsor me on the shocks.

Upper control arm completion

Made these plates to work with the Speedway ball joint sleeves, in fact all the tube sleeves (1.25x.120") heim joints, clevises and ball joints are from speedway.  Still waiting for shocks to build mounts for and I think I'm going to build my own steering arms to slow down the steering.

Very nice!  I will be tackling front suspension soon on the firebird. Trying to get to zero scrub with random parts I have. We shall see.
