Merchant Automotive building a pulling truck -- follow along here

Been wanting to build a truck for a while, was going to be a drag truck for some time, then got into this truck pulling thing. Thought I would share the build with the Garage as it progresses. I'll keep the thread updated with progress pics and what we are playing with.

Hard to find time to work on it much, but we are making some progress. Comments welcomed!

Here is where we started
