We might try to run some 1/4 mile stuff next year, but its a 180 mile drive to the motorplex or tulsa raceway,if they still run 1/4, we got kinda spoiled with our home track 35 miles away and two more within 75 miles still have not made it to extreme raceway, its brand new and a few miles from the motorplex.

Re: Drag Only Chevelle Build

Now the "work" begins, I think this thing has been painted 3 times and sprayed with epoxy double tough primer and sealer and Imron paint,I think the bondo has diamond dust in it cause it is tough, and one layer of some substance not of this planet that mankind has never seen before ,

Gonna take a little work, the 48 year old body has a lot of waves in it, but we knew it wasn't gonna be a quick job before we started.

Cut an old scoop that we had laying around to cover the air filter, got it glassed on, and the progress you see on the sanding is TWO days, crew chief and myself, with 40 and 80 grit paper, some by hand and most with da's and orbital sander, like we always say, "if it was easy everybody would do it"

Re: Drag Only Chevelle Build

A few pics of new paint, still waiting on some vinyl decals, having decals made to simulate all the emblems.
ran at TVRP in Noble last weekend, went 6.23-6.20-6.22-6.17, also got the nitrous hooked up but sunday t and t was canceled due to weather, next t and t is two weeks. also had converter re-stalled to 5800 from 4800 , builds a lot more heat in trans, added bigger cooler with fan, also added delay box in hopes of running some super pro classes also.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?

Mike, it's mid 90's or 2000's gm metallic silver, Ill get the exact color off of can in a little while, pics dont do the silver justice, overall turned out pretty good for a race car paint job, now just have to spend the next 2 years getting all the "body shop" dust out of the shop.
