Well being we are just little shop we went and purchased a ol beat up GTO roller. This thing has been through heck and back...... alot of work needed on this one. The wrecker is towing her into the garage to begin.

And just in case we cant work the bugs out of her we are working on an ol Torino too!

You are making a mess aren’t you? But sometimes that’s how we make winners.

Hmmm well, it looks illegal from here so be careful :)
MAX Body Width: 2 5/8“. This applies to models with flaring. In other words, no wider than the allowed track width which is 2 5/8″

Just trying to help :)

Just kidding. We have a very precise tech process here at HRW, I am sure it will be fine.

Just need a new hammer, mine is wearing out. :)

Got some sanding and general shaping done to the flares tonight.

Made sure the width will pass tech.

Still a ways to go :)
