I especially like that gauge panel. Is that from another car or did you fabricate that yourself?
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Chopper  I ran across that panel at a car show, a vender must have had it for a while as the package was all faded and dirty. My plan is to have it hydro dipped in a bough walnut pattern.

I purchased a Vintage Air A/C and Alternator mount and installed that today. Beware that this unit is not set up to be used with a after market intake original equipment only. Vintage Air does not list this anywhere. Took a little modifying and several hours to get it to line up.  If you look to the left of the ac unit you see my cowl vent motor that I talked about in a previous post. Will try and get a better picture.

Thought is was about time I come check out all your guy's builds. Awesome stuff going on here.

Looking at page 1.
I like the wood replacement in steel . Is there any other structure behind the sheet steel ?  Any other pics?

Also did you add any bracing to the fiberglass rear fenders.? I think I may go that route.

I've been spending some quality time in the garage here lately getting a lot of things done. Yesterday I completed my exhaust system, and put my drive shaft in. I have the wiring harness installed and been making termination as I complete sections of the car. I did bump the engine over the other night it won't belong before she will be coming to life :) :)

Hey vette59jdwl you still interested in the hood? I just have not gotten it weighed to check the freight, I have been putting a penetrant on the hinge pins so that I can take it apart to make the package smaller.

Vette,, are you trying to remove the pins from the hood panels????  Mine  were really  tight..what I did was sprayed  with them down with a penetrate( WD 40  or what ever you use)  and let the set  for 1-2 hrs... then took my propane torch and  heated the  pins and pin clamps   then let it  set over night ....then repeated this process again..and then took a drift rod( same size as the pin rod) and hammered the pin out until I was able to get vice grips  on the  pin... then hammered the vice grips and sprayed the pin as it was moving...this worked for me

That's pretty much how I did it except without the heat
