Hey Rhett, yes I will be doing it all. except for machine work on the motor. I see you have had a problem. I'm glad you found it and didn't damage anything. Hope to see all of you soon. I will keep you posted of my new build as I move along.

John

Alright John! Looks pretty solid other than obvious stuff on the 1/4s. How's the sheetmetal availability for those Oldsmobiles?

Is it going to be a "max effort" car?
