I have this body roughed in on the chassis with clecos, I have some sidepods to build an a little front and rear structure, I hope to keep it going this summer, new pics soon.

As usual its very easy to spend alot of time designing and not enough doing the hard work of the build, right now I am procrsatinating on laying on my back drilling and removing 200 rivets.

It's the work when I have to be on the ground that slows me up! Much more painful than it used to be, se la vie,

After that I need to fab up a layout jig I can bolt to the chassi to square up the new body and front and rear structure. Then get the body positively located to real structure

body work in position while car is on alignment jig I made, Body was for a slightly longer wheelbase car, so I plan on cutting about 2 inches from the side pods. Decisions need to be made about cooling set up.

Body work is from Hurley Racing Products, design was done by Clark Lincoln retired from the GM design Studios. Have to figure out cooling now and finish up some substructure to hold up the body.

http://www.hurleyracingproducts.com/cus ... llery.html, body for mine is the second two on his page.

Here is the chassis underneath

Looking good. Are those side air inlets for cooling radiators and engine?

Yes, side inlets for Water and possibly oil radiators, cut out but not open all the way in the pic.
