Not my car in the photo obviously (it has mufflers), but I’m going to get one. Thanks Mac at Southside Machine for the lead. This is $200 and won’t interfere with my fuel system. So it’s a triple win - price, easy to install, and easy to adjust.

I thought I should post the best pictures taken of my car on my my thread. So here they are. I documented alot of the trials and tribulations of HRDW'21 on another thread here and on FB. I wouldn't trade any of it for the week with my son and the fun we had together, and stress we had together both during and leading up to the week. FWIW, I'd do it again next week with him and hope to be a regular at DW and really hope he can participate with me.

As far as the rest of it, I have at least 5 upgrades to get working on : door swings outs (ordered), D1 transbrake (not ordered), fabricated core support and front crossmember, reworking of the factory air ducting in front of the rad & CAC, rehash of the factory dash with a Holley dash. And 6th, if I can pull it off, forward bars into the engine compartment. I've been pricing all of this and it seems to be about another $3k out of my pocket. I know in the DW crowd this is a minor expenditure, but anyone that knows me knows that this cheap SOB will take all winter to drop that much Do Re Mi. This will push my total expenditure in this turdbomb to around $12K.

I ask everyone to NOT TELL MY WIFE ;) But....I'm sure these will get me into the mid or low 9's.
Curious on the reason for the cowl hood in some pics and flat hood in others? Regardless, I like the look of the black hood on a white car....gives the car a mean vibe.

Glasstek was between the last two tracks. We tried to load two hoods on the trailer and we couldn’t do it without damaging the bottom hood (design flaw on my part.) So the only way we could get both was to put the one for my car on to the car.

The 1st 4 days was with the stock hood and and the last day I had the fiberglass hood on.

Thanks for the thoughts on the black hood. I kinda like it as well. Still debating on how to paint it and the remainder of the car.
