    the car is looking great Cody. where did you get the windshield from? any trouble with it? (have seen some stories indicating that there can be issues sometimes, maybe due to several styles)
     
  9. Amazing work. Can't wait to see it done.

    This one will make the cover of R&C for sure!

    Hope you are all safe over there on the east coast. Look forward to seeing more updates once everything is back to normal.

    What did you decide on the plumbing on the master cylinder? Both barrels to the brakes or one to the clutch. Looks like while one runs back into the firewall, one may go over top the bell housing to the clutch. While the plumbing through the firewall cleans up under the hood, what are you doing with it on the inside? Next year at J Rama for sure! ~WX1
