Your use of textures is an underappreciated skill on your builds Mark - those latest parts look great!

Thank you Jim!

 

I turned my attention back to the interior and started fabricating the dash parts.  The bulkhead is all styrene; solid stock and sheet.

The dash/gauge panels were made from sheet styrene too.

A little more styrene was used for the steering column and its mount.

The tub and some of the other bulkheads and related parts finally received some paint.

I fabricated the front sway bar guides from brass and styrene and then after machining the bolts and washers I lost one of the guides.   I wasn't in the mood to make the same exact part again, so I machined a different style of new (beefier) guides and used the aluminum hardware on them.   (I did not find the missing part yet…)

I know where the missing guide is ....  it’s in a dusty corner on the floor under your work bench ...  next to two or three parts that you lost last year ...

Thanks Andrew.

 

I permanently installed the rear bulkhead and engine mount cross-member and just had to test fit the block and trans…

Figured I'd do the rear sway bar while I was working on the front one too.

Since it's for the street I started making a crossflow muffler.  It would still be loud, but at least not straight-pipe loud.

Inlet and outlets are brass tubing.

Just make sure that you don’t install it upside down when you put this together!  I’ve been known to do this when I try to work past

I started working on the oil coolers, but decided to machine the sandwich block and a couple fittings first.

Thanks Guys!!!

 

The kit oil coolers were reworked and had some details added including some machined aluminum items and custom decals.  They will be mostly hidden behind the radiator when done.

Thanks Trevor!

 

The markings have been added to the timing tab and the bolts for the harmonic balancer and lower pulley have added as well.

But wait, there's more… I embossed the Dynomax logo too.

I love this!  Is it a little piece of vinyl, or similar, under the paint? 

Love the timing marks too!

Thanks guys!

 

The timing tab marks are a custom made decal.

The muffler was done with vinyl I cut and painted over.
