    Welcome to the insanity. Like David said, post some pics so we can see what you have to work with. Would like to see where it needs fiberglass work for sure, sense that is the back bone of what you are working with.

    What motor is it setup with or for, Performance is costly, and is measured in cubic dollars $$$$$. The people on this web site are some of the best at figuring out what you will need.

    Do a search and see what you can pull up from past post and start learning. I'm in Okmulgee, if you are ever in this part of Okla. let me know. Or PM me your phone number. Oh, by the way my name is Don.
