      Just wondering if that is a repair from a crash or fatigue crack replacement. I have seen a few fatigue issues on a couple of other brands after a lot of laps. It looks good! Jeff

        Its a fatigue issue, have done several this year. I guess our tracks are pretty rough! Thanks

        im doing a mullis at the moment, also have an adkins and a spitzer coming this weekend. Been pretty busy so far this winter.

          The ride in the trailer seems to be worse than any track(at least on Illinois highways)! Most around here use a bag under the car. I almost went the dragster route a couple of times but I still have the old door car. Oh well...think spring as we have new owners for Gateway up here, we missed a season with Dover closing all of their racing operations. Word has it that There is a full season of specialty races as well as a decent bracket series on tap for this year. Hopefully a couple of 10k mega buck races in there too. Any way sorry to get off topic...just nice to think racing a little, JEFF

                  The welds on the headers are kinda of sloppy but the dragster welds are very nice. Im glad i wasnt interested in buying that mullis when it was for sale lol.

                    Ever weld any mild steel headers? The materials used in those J bands is about the highest grade of garbage that the steel mill can shovel off the floor and still make metal from. His welds don't look bad at all all things considered. That's why I always talk my customers into upgrading to stainless anymore. Properly fit and purged it can be sanitary welded and look perfect inside and out. Here's one of my last dragster chassis..

                      Thats kick ass, I like it, looks like your doing a very good job, would love some finished pics, And just some food for thought i dont know if you purged them while welding but it helps a ton. Keep up the good work and post more pics
