David DuLany's Pro-Stock Bug

last updated 08/01/01

David is building a Pro-Stock Bug to compete in the TxPRA Pro-Stock class.  David had purchased a 4130 RLR chassis and suspension.  Some prior work has been done by Brink Race Craft, such as installing the pedals and steering, as well as building and installing an aluminum seat.  The car came to Big Wig Race Cars to have the body hung on the chassis, the fiberglass mounted (doors and rear fenders), miscellaneous mounts fabricated (shifter, cut-off switch), and to get a one-of-a-kind Big Wig aluminum interior.

Please see below for the before and after pictures.
