I was given this car for my friend at 1995. It was found at junkyard for him.
That was the beginning I started to make this car.
and I needed 2years to completed.
It was very hard works because it's just a hobby for me.
and now I will present you the general process of making.
Have fun!

until when I started this project .
I referd to many photos of Drag race car
and Catalogs like Chassis works  and other.
