Not at all. Just my category. The group just over me, similar cars ( Camaro,Stangs and Aussies ) but quicker, have them. Most of the cars in my group are still licensed as road cars and some are driven to the events, with spare wheel in the passenger seat, tool box and rolling jack in the boot. I admire those guys, like in the old days ! I do prefer my trailer and my van, getting old I suppose?

I am into finishing the welding of gussets and other thing on the frame

And reinforcing the lift points. The front was so caved in that I was able to weld a 4mm steel plate flush, without the need to use a hammer to make a slight adjustment !!

I made a pad on the side rails as well, that way I can use a floor jack to lift both wheels at the same time.
Rectified the mounting points of the front anti roll bar, as they were not square and level to each other.

Nearly finished, and the rear is next.

I tried to get one like that - but the wheels locked up at the parking lot!

Yeah! Great aren't they ?? If I see one on the side of the road by itself, I will swoop on it !!
The welding trolley's really handy, but cannot put two bottles of gas, for TIG and MIG on it, becoming too heavy to move around. By the way have you seen the one they have at the building supply shops ?? I just droll at the idea of having one.

Anyway, chassis ready to go to the sand blaster, with temperature up to 100 F in the shed I am happy to call it done.

Hi Bazza,

Yeah I should be full time on it for a while. Just back from the Phillip Island Historic Meeting, I had a good look at the Corvettes there, but quite concerned by their reliability , engine problems all the times, most of them terminal !! I hope that mine will hold on a bit better ! In group N the Camaros were much better for a similar engine package. But I don't know if I will ever race there. Too much carnage !!

Not sure about the plastic trophy, but for sure panel beaters and painters are going to make a fortune after this week end !! As I always said, this is historic racing, bring your nice car and race hard but leave your ego at home.
