Awesome updates! You’re getting close!! Is the trans tunnel heat shield stick on? I was imagining it on the inside but the outer shield looks interesting.

Also got the fuel tank in, finished the majority of the plumbing including the hydra boost. Brake lines are complete including the Baer master cylinder.

I almost finished with the wiring. Even started the motor again to confirm no fuel leaks and trunk mounted battery with remote solenoid all worked.

I installed a relay on the remote solenoid that will have "secret" switch that will sound the horns and prevent the starter from operating if the key is turned to start without the "secret " switch being switched on. Probably the only security I'll use, besides insurance.

Probably just gonna blow tires off the rims with what’s going on with the business end but that’s cool. I like it. 👍

I'll be disappointed if it doesn't make the equivalent of 475hp at the crank, minimum. More power than I need but it'll be fun.

How were those vent windows to get completed? I have been dreading that task.
It took me most of the day to assemble them. That included setting the glass and backing up to drill out a hole that had chrome built up In it.

Then there's all the time leading up to assembly. Getting parts chromed, repairing the one stud and dealing with the weather stripping.

Mostly it's just time and more time, kind of like everything else on these projects.

I have heard the weatherstripping is a pain.



Nice job knocking out another piece of the project!
The weather stripping has these three clips along the front that are fragile and not reproduced. Half of mine were not reusable. So I used 3M weather strip adhesive. Other than that it's not bad.
