Nice score!

Ferguson's is like looking at the McMaster and Carr catalog, if they don't have it you probably don't need it. If you ever have a chance to make the Rod Riders get together that they have at Fergusons some time, don't miss it. The amount of "Hot rod porn" they have is staggering.

Tony, any luck at All American Wheel?

Rex, I went by  All American Wheel and had a nice chat with their engineer and came to the conclusion that they wont work for our application.  The biggest issue was the 100 + psi we are running in the rear tires. Also the center was a not stout enough for the projected weight of the car / wheel speed.  But their stuff is really nice for smaller cars with less weight.  Tony

To cut down on bearing drag I finished modifying the main set of rear hubs for oil today. But I still have the front hubs and the spare sets along with the bearing spacers to finish. Tony

It was a bit of a pain, but today I finished modifying the front hubs for oil and ball bearings.  Next we will model the Ford 9" ring and pinion to see how much of a diet we can get away with and start on the rear-end. Tony

Is there a filler hole for the oil that we can't see?

Trent, I still have to drill and tap the fill hole.  Just not sure if I want to put it on the inside hub like the rear hubs or on the top cap like I have seen on others. Tony

This last week I was helping a few old cohorts sort out a one of their customer’s cars at Sears Point. During that time they had a chance to look at the Firebird and give some good suggestions on the suspension layout that I will be implementing.

Today I started working on the fan shroud for the rear end and transmission coolers.  This is really my first shot at doing fiberglass and I have been motivated by reading some of the other builds on here and how they did it.  Tomorrow I will finish shaping it and get it ready to pull a mold.

It sounds weird but to do Dave's seat/dummy tank for his modified we covered the whole thing with cheep packing tape because the finish was nowhere good enough to wax or put release agent on.

We just glassed straight over that, took a bit of getting off, mainly because the shape wrapped back around itself in places. Saved a heap of work.

Useless info but it may help.

Actually its not that hard to do.  You have to "O" ring the outside cap or plate and use a good seal with low drag on the inside and drill and tap for the fill hole.   The front hubs are SCP  supper speedway hubs (short track hubs are different) and take the Supper Speedway pin.

This is the rear hub and the front hubs use the same concept.  Tony
