got some high build primer on the inner fenders and holes drilled for the intake tubes.  getting the front drive sorted out as the SS engine lacks an alternator and some other stuff. hope to have pics this afternoon

just a quick mock up without fenders to make sure firewall clears engine. I do this several times througout builds. whole thing is built then blown apart to paint and then rebuilt.

I think it looks pretty good in there! Its kinda tight but looks like it was made for it. the hole in fenderwells are for blower inlet tubes which I have to get dialed in still

Nice but the metal bezels in the seats are hurting my back !  : )  Any plans to carry the aluminum bezels to the exterior like 3 or 4 in the side of the hood ?
