Are you looking for a specific decal or sheets of material? I got 2 small rolls of it from E bay to do the side trim of an Impala. They had it up to 12 inches wide.

You could use a FR1010 flaming river battery diconnect switch with mag kill. You need one anyway so if this fails at a track you have a better chance of replacing it.

I will be walking it yet again this year. Always a good time any way you look at it.
Talked with Bernie Bartella, their injected nitro
Bob Malloy dragster is hurting. Going to miss it.

You may have to take a 6 inch od with 1/2" wall tube and turn down to the desired size. Metal depot or similar sites have some listed.

Front Engine Dragsters / Re: shifter problems...

A picture of the mounting end on the shifter will  help. Usually there are two styles, one with a tab to fasten it(B&M) and a morse style. Compare it to a pic from Jegs or Summit.
A word of caution, the heavy duty cable is not very flexible! I bought one but ended up with a regular cable.

Thanks Bruce,is placement of a doubler specified or put it in the most convenient location for easy routing?
It is an altered so the bottom rail works well.

I found this while searching for fire bottle cable info. Does everyone else actually run the cable inside of a frame tube or through the uprite holes and attach above the lower frame rail?
 The only metal cased cables I have seen are large and have push only activation. I believe Roo was  setting this up to pull with a lever.  The grey cables are all I see used.
Any help is appreciated, especially pictures.

Two sites to read are  (this site is often down)
And Alky diggers article by Gene Adams.
This is very doable, but you may feel like a salmon swimming against the flow of sbc,bbc .

Check out They repop a scoop from the early sixties, somewhat similar to the GBP car. You can drill your holes although he did have a few options.

I still have a Hilborn injection setup for a 413 . It was Duster Daves, new hoses but no stacks. I ended up staying with early hemis and had this sold to a friend. Still no money. See the pics under for sale about 2 years ago.  705 330 6677
