Project "Because Racecar"
Posted 04 July 2014 - 11:14 AM
The basic plan is to do some upgrading of the fuel system, install a few maintenance parts, paint both the body and engine bay, widen the car by making over-fenders, and lastly fabricating up a proper v-mount setup for the car.
I will be updating this regularly throughout the day and will probably set up my computer in the garage and stay logged into chat if you guys want to heckle me or offer up suggestions haha.
Before pictures coming soon...

Here is a picture of mocking up the radiator and intercooler position. This is all subject to change, I'm sure after Derek gets off work and we sit down and look at it for awhile we will find ways of optimizing it.

Another update. I've got the old lower radiator support out and trimmed down the caster bar supports some. Next is to create a new support and strengthen the caster mounts to it.
Also that bar at the end of the frame rails is just there to ensure the rails stay where they should be. That will be removed soon.
