Are you planning ahead for maybe a small tire superstock combo in the future because your safety equipmemt seems to be well beyond nhra requirment for high 10 second stocker and the only thing thats really made me notice that is the window net, dont normally see that u less it absolutely required.

I didn't nor do I want a cage in this car, she is so short we felt her being away from the main hoop required us to do the cage for her safety, so since the cage is in the net needed to be there too. Now with that said... we are not tied to NHRA, Stock, Super Stock or anything else for that matter. When we aren't having fun I'll throw a turbo LS in this thing, a Lenco and hit the streets for Drag Week or whatever makes us smile. Small tire SS... maybe that would work too, you never know.

Finished up the rear bumper this morning after my weekly fastener shopping trip to Ace Hardware (best selection around). Trying to get a fuel fitting under the car at the rear bulkhead to stop leaking, well it doesn't even drip it just stays a little damp, no chance so I'll have to take it apart to see whats up. Put the last fitting on the radiator overflow and connected that. Installed the rear hatch and shock things. Worked on the front bumper, filler panels and the grill. We fired it off for about 10 seconds to get the timing close to where it would run and shoved it outside, the posted video is from there as we had to get it turned around to finish the front bumper.
