June was filled with building and planning. Rod made final adjustments to the Nova tinwork, before the body was taken to the auto body shop. Rod & Jill are currently working together on the Mustang's interior tin, and adding reinforcements to the fiberglass body. 

Many long lead time components arrived this month. More parts are always on the way, but they are pleased to see the Need-to-Make, Need-to-Order and Need-to-Hire lists are diminishing.

Rod and Jill attended the Englishtown NHRA National, to take delivery of parts and to meet with their advisors. "We have been using as many 1970's 'appearing' and/or actual period-correct parts, as possible." said Rod. "Due to many factors, including current safety rules, durability and replaceability, it's not always possible. We must upgrade all potential weak-links, before we begin testing."

Jill added, "During our meeting, we identified two potential weak areas. So, they will be addressed as soon as possible. Although these upgrades will cause a slight delay, they will ultimately allow us to race longer, faster and safer. In an effort to speed up the build process, it is very tempting to ignore problems, rush things and cut corners. We refuse to head down that path. Our goal is to provide a fun, exciting and memorable experience for everyone including; our team, sponsors, track owners, event promoters and the fans.”

Bad Attitude & Good Looks!
Following body work, the Larry Williams designed paint schemes will be applied by custom paint & lettering artists. Rod and Jill have decided to keep the car names and paint designs/lettering under wraps, until both cars make their big debut.
It's booked!...the trailer will soon be sporting a classy new paint job too.
Kenny and Rod are making steady progress on the brake replacement project. New wiring and lights will follow.  ALL Truck, Trailer and Funny Car Paint & Body Materials Supplied by: USA Auto Supply - Philadelphia PA
