thanks......getting ready to go with cutting the body off the racecar.......getting my shop up to speed......new cutting torches, mig welder, sheet metal brake, various air tools, small sand blaster etc.......pretty much ready

been networking on the web, learning about the car, where to get parts cheap (ex Cup parts) and all the subtle chassis differences between my intermeadiate oval track car (Charlotte, Darlington, Texas) and turning it into a car that can turn left and right (roadrace set up like Watkins Glen)......

Separated the Chevelle body from its chassis....cut the entire rusty as h ell floor pan and trunk pan out of the Chevelle and slowly lowered it over the race car chassis.....cutting, cutting and more cutting...

this is basically the way it will sit.....I love it!....the last shot shows you how low the car is compared to my Montana.....its down there

The body is just sitting there, I will take it back off and take it to the media blasters and have the roof and various parts of the car blasted so we can get going with the body work and paint.....I have to take the chassis to Peter Gibbons's race shop to have him take the oval set up out of the front end and put a road race set up in it so it can turn right too.
