After sandblasting, installing the cage and fully seamwelding (including adding a few extra braces) I sent everything out for powdercoating (including the entire body, everything but the outer skin was powdercoated)

I had all the cage welds carefully inspected after powdercoating</img>

Progress has been slow for the last few months. I moved and don't have any room to work anymore, but... I am building a new shop to work in and it should be done pretty soon. The 24X48 building is up (just needs the door) then I need to run power out to it and insulate and I will be back in business.

God DAAAAMN talk about a rod. What compression you going to be running with that kit?

I would be really interested to see what kinda power out puts you wield with the Kit.

I see a lot of talk and questions about the kit. But I haven't seen any one do one yet.

maybe you should finish the engine and drop it into a 240 or something for a quick dyno hehe.

Anyways good luck the project is looking freakin awesome.

This is what I've been waiting for. If something ever happened to my 240, I'd want to build a 510 with my KA (which is in process to rebuilt similar to yours). Keep updating!!!

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, The wise men, Noah, and every other biblical name... This is freak'n amazing. I am currently trying to convince my fiance that a 510 project would keep me out of trouble. Good Luck with the build and I am looking forward to the results.

Still waiting for the shop to get finished to make any progress. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though. Today I bought the wire and all the other stuff I need to run the power to the shop. Next week I hope to dig a 250 foot trench to run the power. in order to work on the car I need to get power to the shop and wire itinsulate the shop sheetrock the shopThen finally it is back to work on the car

Yep. After a lot of consideration I decided to get a 4 post-ramp style hoist rather than a two post. While a two post gives you better access to the bottom of the car and makes it easier to do wheel work a 4 post is better for storing a car and can be moved around the shop. Also if you are doing work on a formula car like pulling an engine you have to remove the entire rear of the car which means the car will fall off a 2 post hoist

How's the work coming? You should take some pics of the shop too. I wish I had a shop for all my projects- my bedroom and storage locker just don't cut it...
