Good luck with your fix. How long did you have it in your museum?

I had the car in the museum for about 7 months. It was very late being delivered and because it did not run as stated in my build contract I had to cancel all preopening appearances and had a very disappointing grand opening as it was not here on time for that. At least I got something, many people are still waiting for stuff from MT.

Well once again I need to thank Jack, I was having some issues with my afterburner fuel pressure, but Jack had the answer and now I am very close to having a very killer flame. The first test firing was really cool. Photos coming soon.

The first 2 photos are the burner tube, this baby shoots out a massive 3 foot plus flame, again thanks to Jack for his help on the fuel flow issue. The other photos are the color scheme I am using on all bright metal surfaces, wheels, gas caps, front turbine inlet, etc. I refer to it as dirty gold, and it looks a lot better in person. I am considering widening the rear fender like BWD, but because I am doing the work myself, I think I will hold off and see how it works out for BWD. So far I am very impressed with BWD's progress photos. Can't wait to see more including his Rumbler.

How is a hot flame like that so large going to keep from burning up the back end?

The alum afterburner housing is not in direct contact with burn tube and I only use the flame for a few seconds at a time so the heat never transfers to the finberglass body. It has enough thrust so it will not whip back at the fiberglass. It was difficult to work everthing out as the original builder did not give me much to work with. I have had to scrap all of the afterburner frame work as it was to weak to support just the alum afterburner housing much less the weight if a heavy steel inner burn tube.
