eventually it will.
I needed it to move under its own power, so the bare minimum was done.
just call it fender stacks?

been a while since i posted anything.
but things have moved forward.
the MANchero is now a running, driving, registered, and insured vehicle!

i swapped the ole 1.15 ar's with a .84
Omega Moose injection pump
Mister Mark II's
drove it for the first time to my clubs car show yesterday.
still needs a shat ton of work!
but i can now drive it and work out bugs!
my biggest complaint is the lack of decent interior, the old bench just dont cut it for me.
2nd complaint, is that i need to trim my inner fenders when i hit a hard bump, they slam on the frame.
and now its time to replace the steering. going hi steer with new knuckles, and a real "track bar"

heres a preview.
