Default FS/H Cobra Jet Body In White Project

I recently began focusing my attention back on my CJ body in white that I am building to run in FS/H. I will be using a naturally aspirated 5.0L Coyote with a 4 speed Jerico. In the past several weeks I have installed the main structure of the roll cage. More pictures at http://9500rpm.com/GWCJ/index.html.

I recently met George and was impressed with his down to earth and practical solutions to adapting the new engines and technology to our more bare bones race cars. I really like the idea of running the jerico and look forward to following this build.

Some more progress on the CJ.


Test fit the dash frame.

Bar under the dash was fit, located and tack welded in.

Back brace bar and bars to 3 link upper mount were fit and located.

Side door bars were fit and located.

At this point all of the roll cage bars have been fit and located. I will wait on welding the back brace and side bars until I finish up patching some holes in the floor and cutting the floor for transmission and shifter access.

Mitch, you will see this car at Milan. I will most likely make my first test runs there.
Bob, it was nice meeting you.
Jerry, did you get my reply several weeks ago with my number? Bill never called.

More progress on the CJ.


Holes in firewall have been patched.

Mike (MPR) built the Nine Inch Ford Housing. the housing and the dash frame were sent out and powder coated.

A tab for the shoulder harness was welded to the back brace bar. A short piece of 1-1/4" tube was fit and welded to the back brace. I will then fabricate a telescoping adjustable seat back pad out of a piece 4" x 4" x 1/8" steel and a piece of 1-3/8" tubing that will slip over the 1-1/4" tube.

Nice work. I am curious about why a 4 speed and not a 5 speed?
