Small update.

Was home earlier this month. Took delivery of my VFN Cajun Pro extended hood, and my new Mossier m88 housing rearend built by Mart Merrilat.

The only thing I did to it was mock up the hood to see how it will look, painted the rear even though I hated painting over the beautiful welds, and we sent the car to Bigshoe (chris Shoemaker) who is going to finish the cage and swap my rears.

Also picked up my Optic Armor front and rear glass. Super nice quality. Bought second hand new in box though. Saved a 1/3 of the cost.













oh, and mounted up my Racecraft Inc rear spoiler. That was fun. About 120 6-32 screws/nuts.







on it's way to Chris. Wife was so happy, she even paid for the tow. and bought Wing Stop too. Love this lady.

Thanks. As soon as Chris finishes a coupe in his garage it's on to mine. Expect it to be "vert" just to weld the cage all the way in on the top bars. Then the top goes back on after I paint the cage, again.

Send your prayers. Car is at the top of the list at BigShoe's garage and he's hoping to have it done in time for me to come home. I'll be home 02 March and as soon it's in my garage, assembly begins.

Depending on what day the car comes home within my R&R next month, I should be able to get a lot done.

My 7yr old daughter is ready for racecar/garage time with me! So at least she is on board with making progress...

Lol, kiddo asked her while I was on the phone 2 days ago. "mom are YOU excited the racecar is coming back home?" I've taught the kid well. She can troll with the best of them.

New rear is in for maybe next to last time.

Anti-roll bar and shock tabs all squared away.

Cage I the back, minitub and lower torque boxes all welded in.

Front of cage getting done next. Chris Shoemaker is killing it.



What perplexed us for hours/days was the ARB mounts. They were not able to go far enough forward because of the Wild Rides upper torque box. Chris solved it pretty quick by just flipping the bearing plates from side to side and pointing the to the rear. Duh? How come I didn't see that?



I can't wait to get some color on those bare wheel tubs and underside of the car. I'm thinking of light gray Rustoleum again.

It tool me a minute to figure out what you were talking about. But yes, if you've ever been to Chris's, more ARs laying around than my house.
