    had a few spare min so pulled in the build table and put a coat of paint on it. industrial blue sides and weld through zinc coating top.

    also the sfi specs showed up for the cage. got both 25.2a and 25.1g

    both are good down to 6 sec but 25.2 car can weigh up to 3200lbs
    25.1 can only go to 2800lbs.
    should be able to squeeze in on the 25.1 but if i ever add things in future would hate to end up over weight .....hmm decisions

    I can see how that's a tough decision. What did the car weigh before this overhaul?

    we were 2780 full race weight
    but new heads intake are heavier . tubing should be lighter but more bars
    front suspension will be lighter
    but also have to go metal firewall and driver side floor

    got a bit of time between other stuff today so was just working on blowing it apart. need some long reciprocating saw blades to get in and cut body from cage.
    the more i take apart the more i remember how many hours i had put into building this car.
    but is for the best :rolleyes:

    made a few sanding rolls to use during the build.
    1,1.25,1.5,1.62
    mdf circles
    glued together to paper height
    sand uniform
    cut grove stick paper in
    glue sand paper to roll
    let dry and they will be ready to touch up after notching tubes

    Sweet shot with the body up in the air. Have you made a final decision yet on 25.2a or 25.1g?

    Yea going to build it 25.2 (3200lb max) heres my reasoning
    its only few bars more, some are bigger but weight wont be to far off
    will be stronger if god forbid I ever stuff it into the wall
    if we ever do any class or heads up racing we can add ballast to make weight and not be over our cage limit.
