    I am afraid I am tire poor, or maybe can't make up my mind. I have the street rims and tires for front and back. I will just leave the fronts alone when I go to the track, they are MT bias tires. They are just not quite as tall as the M&H track tires that are on the Fentons that are now on the 64. So I have a set of 15x4 and 15x12 centerlines with Stahl front tires and MT big slicks extra now if you want to buy them for the Chevy.

    My Chevy is 4.5" pattern and likely the same as your setup. But I'm pretty happy with the Torq Thrusts, so I'll pass Mike! Thanks anyway!

    I built some light weight brackets and mounted a fiberglass front bumper. Shaved the old door latches and installed bear claw latches.Click image for larger version.

    Were the original door latches bad Mike, or do you just prefer the bear claw type? Nice work on them, and the bumper!

    The door handle mechanism was still ok, but they had removed the inner frame and door edge. They had put in a mounting hoop on the roll cage for a bear claw. It was about the only option other than rebuilding the stock door jamb.

ID:	104113Since there was no floor supports I used 1" square tubing for most of the floor since it did not need to support a lot of weight. Under the drivers seat I used a couple of 1x2.5" rectangular tubing to support my backside.

    Finishing up the floor, I cut cardboard templates to fit around the rollbar and cage supports to finish with a little cleaner look.Click image for larger version.

    Looks good, full competition interior on a street car....Oh Yea. I made some slip in seat pads so the race seats are more suited for a longer sit in time before your butt gets sore
