Whew, that made me dizzy!

On to the next [hopefully upright photo]

When mounting the mid-plate, I wanted it as large as possible for stiffness. Using the size I wanted required a slot in the floor. As a bonus, it also worked out just right as a pedal stop. Just to the left of the mid-plate, under the floor, is a large tab welded to the subframe and bolted through the plate, the same thing on the right side but it had more clearance so no floor mod needed.

I like your dome light. I use a trailer marker light like this that has a yellow lenses. I leave it ON when racing at night and it doesn’t interfere with seeing the tree. I also tied this light output to my Dial IN board and this places the board in the Night Mode dimming it.

After a time of soul searching and pondering, I have decided to sell all my drag race equipment. This Camaro is very nice, in good condition, lots of good work is completed. It needs sheet metal work, wheel tubs, and other minor work to be completed. More details and photos as requested. I have the doors and deck lid, that are also painted white

Update, The Lamplighter did not sell. I am back on track [so to speak] and will finish the project.

I know you had reasons to want to sell. I am glad to read you did not and plan to finish the car and race again. I hate to see anyone hang it up. Really enjoy you build threads.

A Lamplighter update:

After a time of pondering [these days enhance pondering], I find myself thinking more and more about what is important. In addition, I personally think we are in big trouble with the economy and that it will be some time before we recover. So, sparing y'all all my personal thoughts, the lamplighter project has a new direction.

This will be the most basic, least expensive project I have done in many years. It will be a bare-bones foot brake, no electronic package, and most likely transported on a lightweight open trailer.

More updates soon.

Steve, I considered doing so and thought it was a done deal but it did not work out. In hindsight, I am glad I still have it. It is a very well done piece and will be a good racer

Congrats and glad to see the project is back on track (so to speak). Footbrake in a third gen is all I did for the first 14 years of the 23 years I have owned the one in my avatar! Can’t wait to see your updates.
