Sparky, that's just a learning curve on how to build a streamliner, you cram 10 # in a 5#  sack. Then add driver thats double jointed. :cheers:

Nice work!

When I saw the car last year, it looked like there would be lots of room.

You used it all! :-D

Dave,  Started welding up the seams we chopped into what is now going to CANOPY with what we left him to work with---he is doing a great job getting the thing where we can attach "IT" to the canopy frame. I worked on finish welding the turbo waste gates to exhaust manifolds.  Next will be to tap them for the EGTs.  I called Tim Cox today---hopefully will get to see him Friday pm to tap and thread the heads.  Al E, Bill S and Denton came by for a short visit---I dropped by his place yesterday---he was building a intake manifold for his 1/2 v-8 ---he gives me grief for my complicated car---he runs FUEL--he believes life starts at about 90%

We started on rescuing the Canopy piece we butchered out--I beat and banged this morning ---and in 15 minutes I was bleeding in more places than I had in the last 90 days---lol  Dave and I tried to figure out why the spool gun wasn't working----hmmm  I am looking for schematics ---

A special thanks to Tim Cox the C of BC racing---the red Camaro  who deliver the B of BC racing a red hat at 250+ this past season

He came up today a brought some of his drills and tools to tap the heads for the "missing" two head bolts that the chev engs. Left out but but back in their BOW TIE race block.  Andy and I were spell bound as he, so carefully, check and rechecked  the alignment and angles before drilling, chamfering, taping, the installing the heilcoils.

Thanks Tim for the great job and the great lessons..

So- the extra bolts go up into the heads? Are torque wrench adaptors available for that layout?
