Here is the progress on the Ralph Nason Dart. I have the body mods all roughed in now and just need to do final sanding before it is ready for paint.

I've also lowered it down a bit and got it sitting where I want, will need to adjust a little to get some tire clearance at the top. I will open up the front fenders a little more. I like the changes the removal of the flares make to the look of this. The chassis is also built and ready for paint. I have a goal to finish this before the end of the year and have decals in hand now. Anyone interested in decals can get a sheet from Mike Fasig at polecatdecals.com.

Ralph was in the very first Kit Car brochure with his Duster. He had a lot of success in the northeast with Kit Cars.
