Thanks again everyone!!    :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

So my work on the firebird is done. I have had this car at my shop since I moved to my current spot. Nearly 3 years. It is off to the owner in Texas for the finishing touches. Lots of paint, plumbing, wiring and body work left to do. It should race later this year. Possible at Bonneville in September. I will get to drive it at some point as well. I am really happy with how it turned out and I think it will be a very stable car.



Anyway these are the last few pics and here is the album link to see the entire build process.

The car is now back home after being "away at college" for too long. It could have an advanced degree by now.

It's practically done now. All that's left to do now...
mount wastegates
final weld headers
build cold side piping
mount intercooler waterbox
plumb all cooling and intercooler
plumb all fuel
make brake lines
replace master cylinders
make hydraulic clutch system
set up 3 disc clutch
make window net
run fire bottle lines
mount chute release
mount trans shifter and all CO2 bottles
disassemble entire car and paint
reassemble car
and
and
and...

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to see it run and maybe get some passes in it.

I may have a diesel truck LSR build next. We'll see. Meantime I have my regular cage work and other fab work to do. I've also acquired a new rig for my expedition camper build. 4WD, cummins powered Isuzu NPR chassis.

Isn't that the xtreme off road Isuzu? If so what's the story of getting it?

I am doing some work for power nation soon. The NPR was sitting there collecting dust and I made an offer on it. Score!

Between working and travel, it is tough to get this dang thing finished....

Some updated pics

I was trying to figure out the clutch situation a while back and this is what I came up with. I have 8 5/8 can with a twin disc Hays. The way the chassis is built I can't run the manual pedal lever as you would normally do. Also, using a Lenco, I have yet to find a supplier who makes a hydraulic slip on bearing that I can use. So I got this hydraulic slave unit and welded a mount to my housing and will run it from a typical Wilwood clutch master. Let's hope it works :)
