    I think he like the picture of the back end of it since that is what most people will see anyway.

    I try to keep the build stuff over on the Racing Studebakers site at:

    http://www.racingstudebakers.com/foo/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2230

    If it's just pic's you want, they are up at Photobucket (since Webshots went kaput...)

    http://s77.photobucket.com/user/deep...20-%20Bodywork

    Lot's of different albums of pic's there, so wander around...

    DeepNHock,
    I have been watching you work on this beauty for a while. It is really looking great. I hope you give some of the Ford and Chevy boys a shellacking.

    Sweet, Jeff.

    You'll have it ready for The 2015 Studebaker Nationals & Orphan Drags, we presume? BP

    Cut and fit the air/water intercooler tubes.
    This fitting determined the final mounting position for the intercooler.
    Had to clear the drive belt, and still fit under the hood and fit the hole in the hood.

    just wondering what the 'weather pack' connector is sitting on the carb...for data collection? Are you planning on plumbing the intake side of the supercharger? belt drive looks like you're not messing around with belts slipping like R-3's! know I could find answers on the racing forum but that website is hit and miss with both my home and work computers. nice work, nothing like sweating the details! cheers, junior

    That is a Prfofessional Products Powerjection III electronic fuel injection unit.
    Leads are there just to confuse me.
    Chose this unit because it has a map2 sensor (can take boost), and is E-85 rated.

    Kind of a boring pic, but.....

    This is an SFI rated Randy Lajoie 'full containment' race seat. (Used mostly in the NASCAR crowd)



    Way overkill for drag racing, but mandatory in SCTA and ECTA when you gert over a certain speed threshold.
    They want your head and body fully contained. A lot of people add the pieces separately, but this seat does it all on one fell swoop.
    Since this is kind of a long term project, I decided from the beginning to build it to satisfy NHRA and IHRA rules (for drag racing), and try to also satisfy ECTA and SCTA (land speed racing) rules....if it should ever get lost and want to go more than a quarter mile at a time.
    So far, the car has the race seat, and dual fire bottles, and some frame gusset reinforcements...just for the long run guys.
    You can't go wrong when it comes to safety.

    "The Black Car" has some company in the shop...
    Visiting is "The Carolina Salt Shaker" land speed racing Avanti that belongs to David Parris...
    And 'The Yellow POS' sits there waiting for some wiring attention...

    Still looking for names? How about Ebony Stiletto.
    I see the car brother Dan was running on the Salt as the "Bucket List Dream" a few years ago has come by for some attention. Cool car.

    Here's a pic of 'The Black Car' (on the way to the IHRA tech inspection day at our local track)
    Parked next to David Parris's "Carolina Salt Shaker" (The former Burke Bros. Avanti)

    Lighting was poor, due to weather moving in, but it felt good to have them both out of the shop for a few hours....

    Well...This morning, since my wife is not feeling well, it fell on me to cook breakfast. So...on my way back from the nearest "Drive-In" window, A beautiful bright rainbow appeared in the morning sky. That...and this picture...is about as good a way to bracket, the beginning and end of a day, that I can think of. Thanks for posting.

    Cool seeing it outside!
    & from a distance it kinda hits me that it's the only Studebaker that looks good WITH rear spoiler because it's possible to see the Studebaker-design by itself.
    & I don't know if I've missed it before or if I forgot, but the -55 taillights really does some mighty good too.
    Just NICE!

    It had some homemade flat plastic tail light lenses in it..
    Brad Bez turned me on to these (that would fit in the housing).
    I think they fit the body lines real well....
