Any performance or power figures? Its quite a list! I love the white, I reckon thats the best colour for it.

234 rwkw's at heinrich's dyno 2008, fordmods/acf dyno day

best e.t. 13.08 @108 mph at AIR a couple of months before it shut

same engine currently fitted, was built as a street motor, i also have a 450hp cleveland sitting out the back, and 175hp nos kit too when i get bored (at the track)


i took the wheels up to my old work and acid'd the back of them, got a fair bit of black brake dust off. then tried giving them a beadblast to get the remaining paint off but would have taken 5 hours, their garnet is too fine
so will be paint stripping them a 5th time...

Lots of work for the years you have owned it Craig. Is that the F100 you have now in one of the pics, how long have you owned that one for?

I know I said I'd wait until tomorrow but I couldn't

These are my two favourites so far...

These pics are as-shot and, apart from cropping, completely un-editted.

Done.

Was a tough call between the XR and that stock Toyota Avalon, though.

So here they are!

Took a few dozen pics and out of them here's the 6 different angles.

There's plenty I can pick on with them but overall, for a first real attempt at someone else's car at a completely randomly picked location.... I'm stoked!
