9/9/2012 New Moser 8.75
Auburn limited slip 3.91 gears
Willwood disk brakes
8/11/2012 These new pictures are actually old. Just now been able to upload them. Most of the car is together with the exception of some final wiring and the new rear end. We should be ordering it soon. We are going with an 8 3/4 with a 3.91 gear and willwood disk.
yHood Warning Ive had alot of people ask about the hood. It came from usbody.com, yes it looks very nice but my dad has at least 200 hrs into making this hood fit proparly. The fiberglass hood was warped and we had to cut several peices from the bottom to get it to fit proparly, and build up the ward side with fiberglass. Also in order to fit the hood molding fiberglass tabs were added. The bottom is smooth but with most of the hrs sanding and adding bondo. I have pictures of how crappy the hood was before it was finished. I even email the company to show them and they blew me off. They have poor molds and offer poor customer service.
