I haven't been on this site much recently and I haven't updated this thread because interest sort of seemed to have died for some reason. I've had a few folks asking so here are some updates.........

Carbon fiber wheel tubs are in........

Decided to make the front cage bars removable for maintenance purposes......also a good shot of the trick L&H Kustoms billet spindles as well as the one-off latex turbo plug:p.........

That's about it for now. Still have to mount the AC condenser, tranny cooler, and some misc tabs, etc but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel on the fab stuff.

All I have to say is this is taking WAAAY TOO LONG! The Overhaulin' or Search and Restore crews would have been done with this fab and only waiting on the Nelson engine after 1 week of 24 hours days!?! :p

Unreal watching this thing come together. What event will she debut Will?

I have no particular event in mind. I thought I would be further along by now. As long as it debuts period is all that matters. The plan is to maybe do some Goodguys shows, LSX Shootouts, and ultimately Hot Rods Drag Week. The Buick events will just depend.......I know a lot of die hard Buick fans may not be a fan due to the engine.

I agree 100% but this is essentially a one man show you're tuned into here! I wish I had 1/16th of the help they have on those builds....

Will,

Is it no longer being worked on along with the fab by ARK?

The 2013 Hot Rod Power Tour goes through TN and I know there are at least 2(Royal-T-Ltd) of us that would LOVE to stop by your place and see the rides.
