Default a few updates on project

Well ive been kicking my a$$ trying to get this thing done and its getting pretty close, Just have a few tiding up things to do such as getting a drive shaft, adjusting suspension, lining up the hood/fenders a little better, a few wires to connect, and the first start....

Got a little creative with the hood since i had to repaint it anyways

but here is what she looks like as of tonight

Turn the battery 90 degrees or you'll be having electrical problems anytime you launch hard at all.
Battery plates don't like to come into contact with each other.........

Kwebb, It is my duty to inform you that you are violating the forum rules...

In paragraph 3, Section 8 you can read:

8. Now in the same slot of (3.) (Signature) below whatever you wrote, type this;
[IMG]the link to your URL[/IMG]
Ex.
[IMG](H)ttp://homepages.udayton.edu/~newmanjz/sig.jpg[/IMG]
This same rule applies for putting a link in your signature; except instead of writing [IMG]URL[/IMG] you write URL
*The MAX size for a sig picture is 500 WIDE by 250 TALL*
The "PGD code" button above the Signature box lists other "tags" to do similar things in your signature

So fix it!

whats wrong with the fuel line?
batter box is being painted
heat exchanger doesnt need a shroud
hood and bumper are both loosly fitted on since im still trying to work some clearance issues with the coolant tanks

but thanks for all the input guys

thanks man! ya im hoping for low 11s or high 10s out of the box but we will see, also depends on how well the suspension is tuned for the first pass

those are just my goals for now, i know to expect the worst and it could fall way short of that at first
