    Forgot to post some photos of the transmission tunnel cover. Copper seem to be a much better fit than steel. Wouldn’t you agree?

    Ok. I been lurking on here for a long time, never really felt compelled to comment until now. I just read this entire thread, and all I can say is WOW!. You and your buddy are some bad motherscratchers. This car is the pussy’s whiskers. Nice work.

    Almost time to take her out for a spin, all that’s left is the exhaust.

    I've seen those rigid mounted fuel lines before, and I still think it's a bad idea. Vibration and movement of the engine will make them fatigue crack eventually.

    @Steve Ray take another look, they aren’t ridged. There’s rubber between the hard lines on the carb and the fuel block.

    OK I see the rubber lines on the block. Good job on that and making a sport coupe look cool .
