That's just flat out AWESOME! I love it! Nice job. It looks like the body fit a Nitro Coupe chassis perfectly, or did you have to make any modifications. I've got an extra JL and there's a Nitro Coupe hanging around here somewhere. I'll have to do one myself. Thanks for the idea and the great pics!

The chasis had to be bent a little and the front end and wheel well sides needed shaved off, the cage had to be heated and bent to fit the frame again but it all fit together pretty good. Had to re-cut where the axles mount also.Funny thing was when i took it off the chasis it had bumper grooves cut in and they lined up great with the wheelie bar.

That is great! I never would have thought of that casting for a funny car. You get points for both build and the concept. Sweet.

I bought that delivery intent on removing the tampos, but I never considered doing to it what you've done. It looks great.
