Well, 2 1/2 years, a lot of hours (like 4,000+), help from a lot of friends and it's finally "done"..

Thought you guys might like to see it.

Thanks guys! I know someone has a video, I'll try to find it and figure out how to post it. It ran pretty good for the first time out. 9.51 @ 141mph, #3325 with driver and plenty of wind resistance, lol

Thanks for the compliments! I'm looking for a set of hood letters. They don't have to be perfect, but I would like a set with solid studs.

I promise I will find a video to share soon!
