    A few ideas. Pics of our work

    Here's some of My brother's handy work. Click on the pics to enlarge.

    Ever forget to turn on your main? Pain in the butt in car with no doors. We used a PTO cable. Mounted the handle on an existing bracket in the cockpit. I put reflective material to make it easier to see in the dark.


    See the two cables coming over the body? One is the chute. One the main.


    This is looking straight down at the switch. Mine is mounted under the chute. We drilled a hole in the switch handle, ran the cable through, and put to stops on the cable. It took some adjusting to get it right but it works like a charm. You can shut the car off from the outside without using the cable.


    The cable was hose clamped to the frame rail. My brother and a coworker made new brackets for the chute handle. I applied reflective material to this handle as well. That's why it glows in the pic.


    A spring was put on the dipstick to make sure it wouldn't come out on it's own.


    My brother gave me a scoop mount dial-in board bracket. On my car, you can change the dial by just standing in the seat and reaching forward.


    Crankcase vent bought at Autozone.


    We Switched from a Shogun remote water pump to a Proform electric mounted in the stock location.


    The radiator was one out of my dad's Monza. My brother had to have all the brackets custom made. We put it in at an angle to fit better and we think it can pull more air through than if it was mounted flat.


    In order to put an alternator on the car, once again the brackets are custom made. The front curved piece was trimmed of an air conditioner bracket from a '77 olds 350 I have on a stand, in my garage. The back brackets were fabbed at my brother's shop.

    That's why we did it. My brother's dragster has a lever. We just had to come up with a way that worked on my car. His battery is out in front and mine is behind the seat, under the body. The PTO cable, which we already had, works great.
