Blue Blaze was the member that built this car. It ran out in colorado and from my understanding was one badass ride. I drove 11hrs to illinois to pick this up and bring it back to Minnesota. I have had the car for about a month. Spent some time stripping it down (not much to strip) and getting an idea in my head of a plan of attack.

The chassis is in a perfect place to start. Alot of the fab work has been done. My understanding is for it to cert 8.5 NHRA i need to add lateral bars. There is a ton of work i want to do, every day i think of things i want to do. I have told myself i want to get it done for next year.

Parts i have collected:

- kelford 288 cams with fidanza gears
- curtbrown 2g race head modified for 6 bolt block
- stock 6 bolt long block
-JMF drag intake
-K-tuned throttle body
-6 bolt girdle
-ARP main studs
-Front Line Fab Oil pump
-PPG dog box
-Boostin Transfer case

There are alot of unknowns and one of them is the turbo. Unfortunately funds are low after recently buying the dog box setup. It needed to be done tho and am excited to get it in the mail. Currently waiting on my chromoly order so i can add later bars, position the seat/Wheel, and tube the front end. For the next month or two its back to cheap lunches and strictly working on it no more buying.

I measured the main and rod journals which all checked out. I positioned the crank back in the block while i did some polishing.

This is one of the rod journals i got done. I plan on remeasuring everything once polished to see where its at. Need to order some block fill so i can get it sent to machinist.

Got the transfer case the other day. Still waiting on chromoly, I have been told we are in a shortage. Planning on traveling to Chicago to pick up the dogbox, DSS front hubs/axles, and DSS driveshaft late may early June. Need to find a machine shop local to MN for the block. MAP seems like the only option. Was told they wont touch the block for cheaper than 1500 though. Going to start working on mounting the seat and wheel in a position that fit me better.

Also working on repairing some rust on my first DSM i owned. First time doing rust repair thought i would post some pictures of it.
