Finally finished up my second High Boy. Dropped the body and broke off the grill so I had to make a change and I think it looks better.
Tried to use parts from my parts box, have a Pioneer driver, a Pioneer motor and a Slot-it 28 crown I had laying around. Runs good on my little test track, will bring it to the Santa Fe Oval this weekend for further testing.
