    Default The sons Jr dragster nut & bolt restoration complete....

    From what is what was when we got it, to what I was able to turn it into. This was a really bad case of the "might as well's", lol. Quite a few firsts for me on this one. My first upholstery job, and my first experience with a wrap (which was crazy as it was an 11 piece wrap, one piece for each panel, so that the pattern could run up into each panel overlap).I think it turned out pretty good...

    That's really slick, you did a great job, no less expected. Looks Great!
    We have been talking about something similar for the '57 race car, but will try to find a sign co that wants some advertising space in trade for the wrap.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Well, unfortunately our opening Friday night Test & Tune was cancelled due to rain, so our first chance to test the car, and for him to go fast, had to be during the opening race of the season. We hoped for the best, but expected nothing. It was a good day, as the car worked excellent, and he took to it like a pig takes to mud.

    Here's a few pics from yesterday at the strip.....

    Final round video...

    He was .015 on the tree to a .150, and was on the brakes at the finish line for the win....(ignore this over excited Dad at the end, lol)
