Getting the nose mounted today. Got the body back on the other day and finished one of the tubs.

Lot's of little stuff done this weekend and made progress on some big stuff. Got the 4000hp intercooler mounted and got started on the rear wing.

Thanks Guys!!  :cheers: :cheers:

Tauruck hit me up when you are ready for that liner :)

Here are some more wing pics.. Got the main flap made and the tube across the back of it for attaching the support struts from below. Also came up with simple little adjustable gurney flap.

Almost done with the wing. All I have left are the tethers that will limit the travel like a roof flap. I am actually using tethers from a set of nascar roof flaps. In the event of a spin the wing element will flip up. Also with the quik latch hood pins, camlocs and push pins, there is no need for any tools to open the rear hatch.

So this past week we made large amounts of progress.

First off I finished mounting the fuel tank and fabbed and mounted the radiator in a tank.

Next came turbo mounting and some header progress. Our initial plan was to put the turbos up front but once we had the intercooler mounted, it became apparent that we couldn't fit them up there let alone have room for the exhaust and intercooler pipes up there as well, PLUS fitting a 5" exhaust back past the engine, and through the firewall. So we mounted them back by the firewall and as you can see, I had to cut out some tubing to make way for that. Once the headers are done I will redo those braces to fit around it all. The intercooler pipes will sit outside those tubes, above the upper control arms, then turn inward to go into the intercooler. Spark plug access will actually be pretty easy with the nose off of the car.

Then finally I got the hood camlocs installed and Daryl learned how to use the bead roller and made some rear sheet metal
