        • On the Screamin' Woody
          • Front end metal put on the car - although the red lights need to go inboard
          • The grey seats have 8 oz of red dye on them -- but I had to order another 8oz to finish
          • The roll cage is being painted a hammered gold

          Yesterday I picked up the block to my wagon, the Screamin’ Woody, from the machine shop. After a thorough washing the crank was sent in, and then the rest of the rotating.

            The cage was painted hammered gold to blend in a little with the Maple wood on the pillars.

            I intend to leave the carpet black — but will make new interior door cards in a red vinyl that will match the seats going in.. The car is on the home stretch to getting finished.

              This is how the seats (once light grey) for Screamin’ Woody now look after 12 coats of dye. Still a little splotchy so I ordered another 16oz of dye, which came in Yesterday.

                  The motor is finished and installed with the fresh transmission. The car is about 15-18 hours from being Race Ready.
