I used some 2 x 3 sectioned to 1 3/4 rectangular tubing to make a tapered front rail. Grafted onto the 2 x 3 main rails. It will all tie in with upper bars into the roll cage.
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

Thanks Roger. I guess that answers my next question about chopping it, huh?

That car is so stylish as it is I couldn't imagine chopping it.

Point taken, Lil John chose to not chop the one he built. Just have to settle on a color & wheels!

I was planning on running an 8-stack injector. But a blower would be nice, do you have one laying around for me?

There re-poping new EFI units here http://www.scottinjection.com,
I do have an old mechanical one I may part with someday. We will have to talk about it sometime if your interested.

8-Stack will be a great choice as well, The roadster run's well with it's system.
