    OMG!!! I am about to be back on ďTHE PROJECTĒ!!!ín
    Had a ROUGH road to cross (personal crap!) but......... itís going to start up again!!!! Hope to be posting update pix soon! So sorry to have dropped off the map and if I upset any of my brothers by not keeping up- I sincerely apologize!!!!!!
    My life is back on track, and the Sonic is about to have this project, and her soul re-energized!!!
    Even though life threw shit-hole punches, I never lost my dream of building this Sonic- maybe that was a single positive reason everything is getting back on track! None the less- I WILL BE UPDATING AND POSTING AGAIN!!!
    This project WILL LIVE!!!!
    THANKS TO GOD!!!!
    Talk to yíall soon!
    Dave!

ID:	20416My Dart 308 Race Series heads (and I guess all Dart aluminum heads?) donít have the high intake bolt hole between the runners at all 4 spots, so had to epoxy the holes in with JB Weld, then sand them off to seal the intake.

ID:	20421At least the port work looks good. I forgot to get any pix of the gasket matching- but I gotta give it up for Mr. Gasket #121!!! Almost a perfect match right out of the package! Thatís probably why Dart recommends that gasket!
