Re: Advice needed: Car with removable top or bottom

The images have been restored, Comcast stopped doing their personal web pages a couple of years back, this killed all of my pictures. I have been slowly restoring the pictures to PhotoBucket. I'm glad i kept a backup of most of the online pictures.

2016 car “The Snake”, Baracuda Funny Car

The car I decided to build this year is “The Snake” funny car, this one was brought back into the public eye by the 2013 movie, Snake and Mongoose.

Mark, this is a great idea. I may have to make something like this in the future. Can you explain what the markings on this cutter are for?
