mmmmmm

I want to see this thing at the track!!!


BTW, weren't you in CA like last year? I remember asking you about a billet grille and I thought you said you were there. What part and what for? I am moving out there and wasn't sure why you were there.

Well third time really is a charm. I finally got the back Lexan window in without breaking it, and got the exhaust back on. I used the original window gasket after I broke the rear glass. I used an air chisel to chisel all the old glass out of the original gasket, then cut the lexan, (3 times) to fit the gasket, painted the edges black, and bada bing, its in there. It looks very clean with the original gasket. Tomorrow I can sticker up the rest of the window to show thanks to my sponsors.



Also added FCDP sticker to the rear of the truck.

Also want to give a big thanks to Mike, BigRpower and the guys at www.powerstrokenation.com. Mike has helped me many times with this build, and let me stay at his house on the 10 million trips I took out to California when it was still out there. Tonight Mike and PSN kicked in as sponsors as well, and they are gonna supply the rear Shocks and Springs. Thanks a bunch.

Its going to Dallas on March 28th, but I am doubtful it will be done. On May 7th it will run down the track in Bowling Green KY.

Brought my camera, but left the freakin memory card in my computer from last night. So good ones will have to wait. Got the Second seat, (from here forward known as the hold my beer and watch this seat) installed and the harness in. Also finished the electrical and the emergency electrical shutoff.

Been a good day, just opened the mail, and like magic, the turbo blankets are here from Turbo Performance products. Nice looking pieces, and a lot thicker than I thought they would be.:rockwoot:

So are the Turbo blankets to control and direct the heat, acting like a heat shield?
