(modified 2/23/09)- All of the sheet metal is installed in the trunk, the fuel cell is installed IAW NHRA rules and the fuel system is connected. The batteries are in place and the only thing left back there is running the wire from the switch panel to the tail lights and fuel pump relay in the trunk. I installed the fuel pump relay today.

The next project will be to install the switch panel and wire all the gauges and components.

While talking with Reggie Jackson, I pointed out in the NHRA rule book where the seat should be braced IAW NHRA General Regulations 6.2. (This is mandatory for NHRA and recommended for IHRA). Check your class (SST, S/G, Super Pro) for specific rules for YOUR car and sanctioning body.

I will have to fabricate a seat brace from 1/2″ pipe or box tubing to conform to the rules when competing at a NHRA track. If I had a Funny Car Cage, this would not be a problem. That is something that I may do (have done) in the near future.
