Well as alot of you know I crash last week at Atco Raceway in NJ, and the rebuild has started!!! My friend came over the next day and helped me remove the engine and transmission. and about mid week he found on craigslist the 1st 2 pieces heres a few pics




I got both pieces for $350 I could not believe my luck, The Harwood frontend is $975 not including shipping.

I also found a pair of MT ET front runners for $200 and bought my radiator and valve covers. This monday I am going to look at a Aluma Star rim that a guy has about a hour from me to replace the one I bent (he wants $280 vs $450 new). I dont think thats to bad one week after crashing. I will (bore you) keep you all up dated with the progress.

The new frame installed but not after I cut, chopped and boxed in the areas that I had on the last frame and improved areas that were not as good as they could have been done the last time I did it.



Fabbed and welded up the new mount for the rad. Yes I know its in backwards its just for the picture



New master cylinder installed with a positive stop to prevent the push rod from pulling out like last (crash) time. LOL



And new rims to replace the bent ones



In the next couple days the new glass doors will be installed and the engine and trans will be installed. Will update "bore" you all with photos as it goes

Glass doors have been installed



Rear end dissasembled and ready to be dropped off to S&W Race Cars to be shortened



Old wheel tubs have been removed so that I can mini tub it




Hopefully how it will look after all the work minus the new quarters.



My friend and crew chief repairing the new (used) front end he found me on craigs list
