    In primer and close to getting a paint job......I took out the small block ford and put in a 427 side oiler.....That pretty much will finish the car.

    What did you do with all the other dashes you had to chop up to get the clock portions? Awesome idea!

    Scott, seriously dude, this is the Intros page, not the Message Board.
    You've been hiding this thread with your build here for mroe than 2 years, missing your 'target audience'.
    Your car looks great, but so many more people would have been watching it if you'd posted it on the Message Board........ or is that you're shy?
    Ah well, it's your call.
    Cheers.

  21. Scott - What are you going to be filling those other dash holes with? The clock is pretty unique in size.

    What? No! You must finish it and do 20 hot laps at Laguna Seca with a Go Pro before you can sell it!
