Got rest of ds loop parts fabbed up.

Hey Steve. How does next weekend sound.not this one but the following. Either sat or Sun. I'm not sure if I have to work on Sat or not yet. If I do it would only be till 1 o clock. Then also was wondering if you could score some bolts. If not I might be able to.

i used the hammered paint on the top of the dash and cluter area. so i figured i would make it match. it almost looks like a factory molded plastic.

a tease is better than nothing to some. lmao

Re: what it takes...

dreamstang, for your loop, if you use carriage bolts and put the rounded heads inside the loop, they will do less damage to your driveshaft if it does come loose.
I don't know if you are concerned or care about that, just thought I would pass the info on.

Actually that is a good idea. I'm not sure that I will do that or not though. If I ever switch to a high dollar aluminum ds, I definitely will.

Hey Trojan. Do you think that a u bolt on each sfc is strong enough? They are only 5/16 thread. 5/16 bolts are nhra approved but I didn't see anything about u bolts. This way they would be more easily removable.

Yes. Some poeple use 2 of them. I am only putting one on the front of the ds. If the front of the ds fails then it has a chance to hang up on the ground causing a catapoult effect or coming through the floor board. And if you launch on slicks at the track it is required.
