ultimate funny car

Oh man I'd love to make this into a funny car.
Imagine pulling into a spot,
flipping some hydraulics,
and the whole body lifts up.

Yes that would be wild.

Today the boys and I spent some time rearranging the shop.
A huge pile of junk had grown in the open space.

It didn't take long to clean it up,
and slide the frame into the work spot.

Now that the body and frame are separated,
there is a list of stuff do depending on time.
*add leaves to front spring
*swap to 9 inch rear end
*scrub and paint frame/floor
*mock up 351/t-10 transmission
*fabricate brake assembly + lines
*mount fuel tank/lines
And that is the short list!

The body needs work too.
The floor seams will be cleaned up,
then a nice thick coat of epoxy primer.

I spent an hour grinding all the weld globs and splatter that I couldn't get at before.
A dirty job but man I've been wanting to do this for a long time.

Probably 2 years has passed since the frame and body were separated.
I'm gonna bust some a$$ to get them together quickly.
