Hey again everyone, sorry for the delay in progress, been super busy with work this week. :wacko: Anyways, was able to get the majority of the work out of the way on the intake manifold. Still have some minor things to add but the main bulk is complete. I love how ford has the intake runners going straight into the top of the valley/head instead of the traditional easy to recreate angled runner directly into the cylinder head :blink: . Hope it looks alright, I'm happy with the outcome. Its tricky to get those ideas out of your head and into a piece you can hold in your hand. That's the fun part. But when you pull it off , that's what I enjoy the most. :) Thanks for looking and as always I appreciate all of your comments.  ..... Nick

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay. Work has been pretty busy and haven't had much time to even think :) Anyways finally got a little done on the headers. This part is kind of hard with again the space limitations. But I'm happy with the progress so far. I still have to finish cleaning the header up, once the rough edges are gone I think it will look great. Thanks for watching and letting me know what you think..... Nick

Hey, sorry it has taken me so long to answer your question. I have had the pleaser of being able to drag race since I was in high school. Because of this and lack of funds when I was younger I learned to work on these cars as much as possible myself. Also if I didn't know how to do something that I needed I would often trade time in race shops to get my hands dirty learning how do the things I desperately needed to know in order to be fast.  In the end I have been able to spend some time behind the wheel of some pretty incredible heads up cars, much like the one I am building here. I will never lose any love for the 1:1s but it is still very fun and rewarding to be able to recreate something you love in such a unique way.

Thanks for your reply, Nick.  Your headers look great!  What size solder are you using for them and what type of adhesive?

Stunning work with the headers, Nick! Those are not that easy to make, but yours turned out excellent. Otherwise really great work too. I'm tuned in for sure. B)

Hello again everyone. I again made some small progress this evening. I finished up the other header as well as got some work started on the transmission. I've decided for the moment to put a Bruno drive in this car. I also toyed with putting a PM Power glide in as it is becoming more common to see a PG in these cars as they have found ways to get them to stand up to the power. Also much much easier than trying to battle a clutch car.  The Bruno is still a relevant choice and def different than all of the traditional lencos and liberties. I was able to start boxing in the doors as well. That's about it for now. Thanks again for following and thank you for your comments...... Nick
