Covert spy shots on this oval.....had to bust in and take these pics quick like before getting made :-&



So much detail in this car it's sick! Fuel gauge, custom empi Gt wheel hub to flow with oval switch, badass tach mount/backing plate through speaker opening... Notice the billet aluminum radio block off plate that looks like a stock stamped steel one? mods on steering lock, berg locking shifter, gauge mount in radio opening and cover for backsides to look like a wiper motor =D> Fuel pump and filter look a lot like my setup :-k getting modern style fuse block, relay setup in centre of trunk. Everything Jrod does is TIG welded check out the BJ beam narrowed 3" I think? Notching shock towers and filling in to clear body....all TIG'd =D> ....he likes shit to look old school and cast.....dude will make something on the mill then spend hours hand profiling it and tossing in the rock tumbler to look like it was cast haha!! every way you turn looking at this car it has some killer hand made one off bracket, clamp or fixture....love it \:D/

In the midst of custom wiring and mock up now....next little bit will be lending a hand to do headliner and assembly on a 1914 IDA'd stove....payback time for the many hours spent helping me on the 55 Smile

911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.
