More pics of the car...

Thanks to twistedstang for bringing his wheel and tire to help with what backspacing I need...




For the shifter, 4 nuts were welded into the trans tunnel so you can bolt down the shifter without needing a second body...


The shifter is going to be a Turbo Action shifter...



More pics of the cage...



Funny Car Cage...


Seat mounts...


Harness tabs...

The cage is officially done... The ONLY thing left for the cage is to put 3/4 bar in the funny car cage... Then it will be 100%






Just messing around with placement of the intercooler... Want to put it under the dash... But looks like it will be placed in the back...


People were asking why bars were going straight to the upper torque boxes...


What is done is a plate is welded on the torque box and then tied into the cage like so...

Intercooler mounted... We decided to put it in the rear right to help balance the car out...






Rear end has a tie down hook on it now... Wheelie bar mounts will be fabricated shortly...


Rear wheel area trimmed...



New tin work on the floor...
