Nice work JavaJoe. I was through Nashville last week and was going to stop by but ran out of time before heading to the airport. I will bake in some time on the next trip.

Like the reports from caffeine central.

 Still have to add sway bar link tabs at some point but the first lower arm is done and the RF suspension is all mocked up. I have to build the upper coilover mount next and I want to think on that for a bit.









 Not a whole lot of room for headers but it's enough.

Managed to fit some brakes up front. Willwood GP320 caliper and an off the shelf wilwood vented 11" rotor. Barely fits though. Had to grind off the top corners of the caliper.



Then I got the steering sorted too...   We are bump adjustable on both ends of the tie rod. Excuse the lack of rod end back up washers. They will come later.

Ok so we made good progress this weekend. The car is pretty much a roller at this point just still attached to the chassis table. We finished the front suspension, knocked out some little widgets here and there and began really fitting the nose/hood assembly. Looks like with the car at about 3" of ride height, the roof is 47" off the ground and we have the ability to lower the car on to the frame.  Here are some pics. If you copy and paste the URL from any picture it will come up bigger.

Thanks guys. Can't wait to put it on the ground but I want to finish the nose first.

 Here is another detail shot of the sway bar setup. Scored these arms and sway bar at a nascar auction years ago. They ended up working perfectly.
