Bob, Thanks for the nice words on my old SDRA dragster. With your loss of your best friend dragsters don't seem to matter much. The little one misses his/her buddy too. Hang in there.

Sam will forever be in our memories.

Staying busy to keep my mind off of losing him. Got the Anglia front axle mounted in the dragster. Used the spring that was in the car and simply drilled some holes in the wishbone forgings. The spacing was correct. Had to do some trickeration on the wishbones and make rear brackets. All simple stuff. It will sit an inch or more higher in front. The friction shocks will link right up with the tabs already on the axle. Now modifying the steering arm.
Some of the nostalgia races we run at do not like these front wheels. There are no 17" Moon discs available. So I'll make some flat aluminum discs, aptly named Bob discs. Oh, and I'll need some tires.

Front end looks nice, should work out fine. Will cut some weight off the rig. Looking forward to seeing a set of those "Bob" discs on those aluminum front rims. Stay busy, good therapy.

Yeah, the “ traditional police” would give you grief over those front wheels. I’d feel safer running those than the wires. A Bob disc sounds like a good plan!

Made a steering arm to get from point A to point B. Somewhat bulky looking but strong.
