    Finally, I finished assembling the universals on the driveshaft.

    I forgot to mention the spark plug wire separators made from .040 sheet.

    I finally started on the carbs. I cleaned out the spare parts box and found enough to make 14 carbs. I wanted to make extra in case I damaged one or more while drilling them out. In this case I will have some for a future build. I posed 6 of the Strombergs with the scoop. Lastly, I finished the toneau cover which is just a sheet of .040 styrene. Today I added the sewing pin "snaps" and then "lined" the cover with black velour Con-tac paper. Next up is to finish the carbs.

    Headers are now permanently attached. I also installed the firewall and pedal assemblies. I moved the clutch pedal slightly to the left as previously mentioned. Sorry for the poor quality pictures.

    Test fitting headers for fit and angle and also driveshaft for length. Looks good.

    I made some new slightly larger headers and flanges from plastic tube. Hose clamps are made from beer can aluminum. I added a screen to the inside of the hood scoop that will rest on top of the 6 Stromberg 97's.

    Hi Sam. I keep a variety of hook-up wire in 22-24-26-28-30 gauge for most wiring . Amazon sells a little box of each gauge each with 5 or 6 colors and it comes in a handy dispensing box. About $12. But I'm always looking for usable wire. Old USB cables are a good source for very thin flexible stranded wire in various colors. I hope you post pictures and progress of your build. I mentioned in a earlier post that you might want to consider boxing the frame rails and maybe reinforce the cross-members on this model. Thanks. Steve
