Good question Ukrain, my helmet is even with the top of the seat. I look straight down the front sheet metal, maybe a few inches above that. With the seat padding, I will sit maybe an inch taller.

That is one sick rig! Great job. And yes, that thing is begging for a rear wing.

I took it out for a maiden voyage around the neighborhood, and it did great!! The morse cable for the shifter pulled apart for my shifter, so I have to have one made, instead of the cheap EMPI cable. First gear feels really nice, and pulls hard. I don't have to feather the clutch out like I thought I would to get going. Now I am puting tail lights, brake lights, and running lights in the wing, and mounting up some headlights...man this has come a long way in a year! I can't wait to get this thing in some sand!

If the rads. work better above the motor, the wing will have the tail lights, and brake lights in it, cuz this pig WILL be street legal!

I seen you said you have a water-jet at your disposal, what kind of rates do you charge. I need a few brackets cut from 5/8 plate?

Thanks

Thanks everyone! The s-10 axles are holding up great! I have everything torn apart to powdercoat everything. I will add pictures later tonight. @ ES1578, we charge 125 per hour for cutting. If you want me to give you a quote, send me a DXF, and I will let you know. Here is my work e mail. jterrell@priceindustriesinc.com

It's all torn apart! I have parts powder coated, and is all set to have the frame blasted on Tuesday. I am mounting the radiator right in the path of fresh air too! Here are some pictures.





One thing I am changing are the bushings...these were poly, and I am machining delrin ones, with a crush sleeve. The poly ones just flexed too much..


RED! This will be the color of the frame too.


The new rad location..


Sparkle silver arms!


Super duper hi temp powdercoat. good for 1,500 degrees


All ready for the blaster.


Thanks for looking
oh, my graphic designers...LOL!!

I got a lot done this past week! The frame was blasted, powder coated, and I am well under way in the assembly! Check it out.

Blasted.


I added some dimple die parts to the upper shock mounts.


POWDER!


After the first bake, and now ready for clear.

Rolling out of the oven.


And that's how its done.


New delrin bushings made and installed.





Today I got the gearbox back in place, and the over flows back in..



Petals, shifters, and lines...oh my!



Rear shocks, limit straps, and the radiator.



Whew, It's gonna be a good week this week....more to come!


Justin.

UPDATES!!!

It is now a roller!


Fresh stainless rotors


Brakes are all in, and bled, steering is also in.




Trailing arms back in place..


Heck, I even threw a motor back in!


I have an aluminum firewall in the passenger compartment, and then I put some insulation on the aluminum, and then a layer of mirrior stainless for the firewall in the engine bay!







It's now a full roller once again!


And this is what it will look like with the vinyl wrap on it! Not bad for a month tear down, and paint!


Thanks for looking!!
Justin

Great build!
You have a glitch, one of your pics of the alum./mirror stainless firewall isn't...it's a double post of the previous pic.
