Upgrading to a 10 point roll cage with swing out doors, I re did all of the gauges and added a fuse panel. The guy before me had NO fuses. Having the seat out makes it easy for ol fat azz to get around :P

There'* still lots to do before next season least of which is the motor. I still dont have one and have decided not to rebuild the 454 block I have as it will take more than its worth at this time (cast crank, pistons, 2 bolt main...yeuch). So I'm on the hunt for a big block while I await disk brakes and new rubber for the doors. I have all the paint to finnish the frame but wanted the master cylinder and brake conversion in first.

It'* looking good. A nice cozy garage in a home away from home.

Thanks guys it sure is fun.
No immediate plans for Bone Evil this winter, it is in storage untill spring.
I might pull the head unit and replace the lights in it, or I might get a new head unit in the spring?

Except for the engine itself, parts for the ol Acadian are easy to come by and inexpensive.
A complete disc brake conversion with discs, calipers, brackets, brake lines and master cylinder only come to $350, $650 with tubular 'A arms.
Door seals were $85

Awesome, good thing you're dump the front drums, that'll get rid of a lot of weight and improve the stopping power as well...

How about a blown 502? Or a n/a 632 Poncho?
