    F@#k The "Forum's Fastest Street Cars " List - Build Thread

    So here's the deal, I battled with the idea of putting the necessary things back on the car for a "street driven car".
    just so I could get on the "list"
    its lonely on the drag only car list with only the cars off the road.

    but I don't race on the streets, I slaughter cars at the track. so this will be my build thread that will hold my position of drag only cars, at least till someone joins and makes me want to go faster

    marc will be posting my photos and ill edit them with some words, just till I get a new phone then I can take over. takes time I don't have uploading to computer right now

    this will be a 25.2a sfi spec chromoly cage build with any other random things im doing in the shop I feel the need to toss up a photo for you guys.

    hopefully im not to busy with other things and the forum stays afloat , but it will be finished by spring for racing season

    this is car as it was last year with the standard 8.50 mild steel cage and a 427 sbc best pass of 9.04 @150

    plan this winter is

    build table
    25.2a cage
    new interior
    strut front suspension
    motor tear down and fitment
    rear gear swap
    hood surgery
    new steering system



    unloaded chromoly for cage and a 2x3 tubing for table top sections




    I beams for build table base

    hard to see but there are hooks in the roof for lifting body off later

    cutting some 4x6 for the table tie-ins




    lil sand blasting on the valve cover for that "custom look"


    sheet metal in break


    shrink





    hold for welding


    press a top

    press a bottom



    tig together


    cut some scrap aluminum



    clean up










    tig that on


    breather action



    - 12 an fitting


    cut in lathe ready to weld on to breather tank for vacuum pump

    might not be best aluminum welding but she holds and no leaks

    made border run today and picked up the headers for motor.
    stainless looks much better than ceramic coating

    If I were to be at any of these builds in person to just watch, observe and learn...That'd be awesome. Especially all these custom builds, I wouldn't even be able to pretend what the hell I'd be doing lol
