Well its been slow going over the past week been extremely busy with work and fixing on a Duramax for one friend and a Kenworth rollback for another after work... I have been waiting anxiously for my 25.5 Spec book to arrive before cutting floor pans and bending cage pieces. That showed up Monday so I am hoping this weekend to make some progress and get some pictures up and start making some strides on it. Also if anyone has some good pictures of their 25.5 mustangs they would like to share please pm me or throw the link up I like to see other peoples ideas.

Small update haven't been able to make much progress with this summer being so busy.. I was able to get the k member mocked up so I can drop the engine in with the headers, so I can start bending the bars for the front end and get a roll on the cage. More updates to come soon. Plans also changed as far as the engine size ended up coming across a screaming deal on a 58X 4.00" crank so 403 it is vs the 370 I planned on building. Hard to pass up a brand new Eagle crank for $400.00 shipped to your door even if it isn't the "best" crank to use. So now I've been looking at the Borg SXE S369 or S371's to use in a twin setup.

Nothing too crazy been busy as hell with work and side stuff but I did get a set of mini tubs from Furo Racecraft. He is local to me and makes his own they look nice so in the next week or so I'll be cutting the trunk floor and stock tubs out. Just wanted them in before I got too crazy with tube work. I'll post some pics once I put the knife to the trunk area. Surprised no one noticed the corvette ZO6 calipers on my mustang spindles lol.

How do you like the Rogue bender so far? Ive been looking at bender lately as im kicking the idea around of doing my own cage vs using a pre bent deal. What notcher are you using?

Looking good so far!

I finally picked some 3" .250" wall DOM up for my axle tubes in the 8.8 housing. I chucked them in the lathe and machined them down to fit the housing and deep enough to bottom out where the stock tubes didn't go much past the plug welds. Should add a decent amount of strength once braced up. The up close picture showing the tube puled out is just showing the amount of material i had to remove the 3" OD sits tight against the cast center section. Once my housing ends get here i will determine overall width and cut the excess on the tubes down on the lathe so their dead on. Here are a few pictures.

I like the rogue fab M600HD a lot for the money and its capabilities especially now that they released a mandrel attachment for header tubing stuff like that. And the notcher is the rogue versa notcher. I feel it's the nicest one yet that uses hole saws next thing better is a Bridgeport mill. I've
Made a lot of notches thru moly no issues at all very solid unit.

Well I ordered a set of upper and lower JCR Chassisworks torque boxes and should have them Monday. Paul was incredible to deal with and their customer service is always top notch. I will post some un-boxing pics as well as install pics once I get to cutting the stock ones out. Have to say I am excited to tie the torque boxes into the chassis and tube work.

JCR Torque boxes came today, i am impressed with the quality and design have to say they are a very nice piece. Also the owner of JCR Paul was very helpful and the customer service and instructions I received with the boxes are top notch. I am stoked to start cutting the car up more and get these tied into the 25.3 cage. I will post more pics when I get the trunk floor and stock tubs cut out. For a teaser here are a few quick pictures of the upper and lower torque boxes. I have to say I am feeling more confident that i will get this thing to hook on the ice as well as on some no prep tracks. Also ordering some 1.375 .095" 4130 to make my own lower control arms with 3/4"X3/4" rod ends.

Yep that's the plan, WIR , GLD, plan to get my license at Rock Falls. Would really like to do some drag week stuff and maybe hit a few no prep events once it gets done. Hope to start making progress again now that I'll be home for a while.
