No need for confidence Bill, when you got the "Banana". It is what it is, and nothin' more. Wink Wink

Finally quit raining Rolling Eyes , and I pushed the "Banana" outside, washed off all the shop grime, and snapped a few pics. It now has a small amount of rake to it, and I likey. Very Happy Very Happy It "does" look kinda angry with the black bumper. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Well, it's officially ready to run. Carb is full & primed, everything's hooked up, & all I need to do is add oil, do the steering shaft, and put the driveline back in. The steering shaft is gonna be a blast, NOT! Oh well, it's gotta be done I guess. Rolling Eyes I buttoned it up, and tucked it in for the night.

Thanks Russ. I can't wait to get it to the track either. What shakedown runs? I'm poinin' it down the track, and unleashin' the Banana full tilt boogie. As long as it stays straight, I ain't shuttin' it down 'til I bust the traps. Twisted Evil Very Happy The only upgrades I did to the engine was I added different intake valves (Bigga' Ones Very Happy ) I should be able to pick up a little power there. So we're hoping to put it in the low 6's @ our 1/8 mile track.

Yeah, I love the under hood area now Bill. Especially since I can pull the whole front clip off in about 1 minute. Not having fenders in the way is a major improvement. Very Happy Very Happy I'm going to try and fire it up this afternoon sometime. Twisted Evil
I don't think the steering will be too bad Bill. Just another few hours of time is all. Shocked

There's no racin' goin' on for a couple weeks or more, so I'm trying to have it completely done by tomorrow so I can take it to the Memorial Day Weekend Parade on Saturdat morning, and a car show later in the day. Like Jason says, it's been raing here for about a week. Not heavy, but just enough that it's soaking into the ground good. Just hope it quits before Saturday. My ignition switch finger is startin' to get itchy. Laughing Laughing

Everything looks fantastic Doug. You did a great job.


Just wondering (if you don't mind me asking),......what kinda $$ did you end up putting in the front-end ? Just trying to see how much my AJE front suspension REALLY cost me. Laughing

Thanks Keith, no I don't mind at all. I'm in the whole front end, including buying the adjustable A-Arms, about $1000.00.

I fired it up this afternoon Twisted Evil Twisted Evil cheers Needless to say, my neighbors were exstatic. Laughing Laughing I love the smell of high octane in the afternoon. Anytime of day actually. One of my neighbors stopped by (one of the cool ones) and thanked me for smellin' up the shop. "Made my day" he said. Then he said his wife was in trouble when he gets home. Shocked Shocked Whatever that means. Laughing Laughing Laughing It took me over an hour to clean up all the stuff that fell off the shelves. Laughing Laughing It was well worth it. Matter of fact, I may get the urge to clean the shop again tomorrow. Very Happy Very Happy
