    Finally getting the doors painted and put back together. Actually feels like I'm working on a whole car now not just working on parts.

    Cool Tim. I try to show "how" I do stuff, not just show what I have done. I hope it makes things easier for other people that may do it in the future.

    Thanks Simplestone. The camera kind of messes with the sound. It's a lot quitter than I expected it to be. Can't wait until the new starter comes in and I can tune it up better.

    YEAH, BABY! Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Sounds awesome Aaron!!
    These are the times that make the tedious journey all worth it. Glad you shared the start up with your family/friends. Go put some miles on that great little coupe, and thanks for taking us along.

    Thanks Greaser. Ya, I waited until my boys could come up to start her up. I still have things to do before a test drive, but it's getting closer.
    Working on interior stuff now.

    That is awesome!!!! I remember when I fired my car for the first time after working on it for about five years. Couldn't wipe the grin off my face for hours. Then when I drove for the first time it was straight to the gas station to fuel up and we got swarmed by every one there wanting to check it out. Then we fired it up to leave, nothing sounds better than a flathead with a radical cam!!

    Sounds great! How big are the tail pipes? Diameter wise.

    Really really like how your dash turned out
