    So with that all cut away do you just plate it back?

    That was from a report card of mine way back as I was following my sister who was a true genius getting a full PAID scholarship to BU just on her grades. :eek:

    So naturally I rebelled, the teacher who wrote that was horrified when I decided to go to lowly trade school to become a mechanic. :)

    Yes it's the Crites kit. We did a couple extra things like removing the sway bar mounts ( I haven't run one in 3 years) and closing up the cowl ( Dale's idea), for a cool look! Plus it will keep water out. Dale is one heck of a fabricator and welder, that's for sure. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice work on the shock towers and cowl.
    I can't wait to see it with the 427 in there.
    That lettering looks like a million bucks,too.Did Dale do the lettering,too?

    Hopefully Crites has that part figured out, they have been ordered a couple weeks ago!

    Hopefully their customer service has gotten better to. Headers for my 57 Ford took about 8 weeks and I started hounding them at about week 6. I eventually did get them and they fit pretty well, only had to move one tube around the draglink.

    I really like this build and how your going about it. Look forward to seeing it in action.
