after $2700 in bodywork ( hit in the chicane at Portland ) the race car's body is perfect!  I applied the new graphics cutting out and custom fitting a graphics kit I found on the net for another model car... just needs the mandatory class, sponsors and SCCA stickers and she's ready to race again!

Picture 009.jpg (120636 bytes) Picture 005.jpg (132732 bytes) Picture 001.jpg (127619 bytes)  11-15-03    rebuild time!

 Here we go, I pulled the engine out the bottom and started on the new block (on stand)....15 hours so far. next , pistons and crankshaft come out, get checked, re-installed with new bearings. The block will get honed and new piston rings will be installed...then put it all back together and ad all the new go-fast stuff. Any interested car guys that own one or are interested in seeing the project, call me and drop by!

I get my engine back this week !  a rebuilt short  block that has been o-ringed  and balanced. I will have to assemble the rest of the engine . The piston tops have been ceramic coated and the skirts treated with Moly.  New Raceware & ARP stud, rod and crankshaft fasteners....while I am waiting, I removed the dash and completely removed all the old heater core, fan and climate system that weighed around 45 lbs (picture 3). I also cut the dash in half lengthwise and removed another 15 lbs while still able to use the stock gauge cluster. New Lexan windshield will take even more weight off..........stay tuned
