OahuEli, how did I do?
So the car is basically finished, need to repaint and polish the wheels, and I'm still waiting on the fibreglass bonnet from my painter. Got the...
Looks like a Chinese copy of a real distributor. See them a lot at swaps, plain white box, no brand.
Better shots of the interior, looked orange in the other pics.[ATTACH][ATTACH]
I made some front nerf/tow points and fitted the rear bar.[ATTACH]
My trimmer did the new seats to match the original stuff he did nearly 20 years ago. Very happy with the result.

If you need a couple more pics, have a look at page 3 on my current build, different cover, but similar area.
Radiator is in, exhaust has been blasted and painted. Just need to fit the exhaust and the rear floor so I can mount the fuel tank. With four days...
Thanks, I'm hoping to have it done in the next couple of months. Working on it daily now.

Got the fuel delivery system done, not really H.F. but it's part of the car so here it is.[ATTACH]
It's where the factory put it, and as you can see, I don't like to modify my cars much!
Not too bad, I just use a squeeze bottle, and it's not done that often. I build most of my cars this way.

I originally built these for the blown engine, way too big for this little aspo 350 in the car this time, but I own them and they fit the car,...
Dash is done and the wiring is mostly finished and tested, kept the modern bits hidden.[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
