Many folks have followed the blow by blow build of the JBL Roadster by Andy Dunn.

"Better known as the Butcher"

We at JBL must congratulate Andy on his fine build.

  Andy was truly a novice at car building and had limited himself to car related tasks no more involved then putting fuel in his cars when they needed it.  Changing the oil was something best left alone as it just was not necessary.  If you have the time, we strongly recommend that you visit his site and enjoy the true joys of building a racing car.

 Below please find some details on his car as well as thumbnails of his car.

 

"All I can say is this thing is brutal, way too much motor for a sane man, but maybe just enough for the Butcher"
