That is some skilled work on those headers. They are stunning. Fenderwell headers as soooo cool. It look like the engine is a monster crouching under the hood and bursting out the sides.

I don't work on real cars much... Is it OK to have the master cylinder so close to the headers?

Looking forward to more progress on the cuda. Another jewel!

A work of art that should be put in a museum when completed Bill.

The GTX is looking great as well.

I appreciate the kind words Scott, I agree, I love fender well headers! and it will have a heat shield around the master cylinder before it is ever fired, thanks for the interest

Nice stuff indeed! One small suggestion: Master cylinder heat shield!

I made one when I was putting mine together.

hey John, thanks so much bro, he is sending them off soon to get a white ceramic coat for the old school look, and it will have a heat shield around the master cylinder, just haven't made it yet, it's not as close as it appears in the pic, still a lot to do before it's ready for the road. thanks again for the interest!!

Looks like within the next month or so I'll be cleaning off the workbench. Hopoefully all the great started projects will continue, aside from my attempts. I know how hard it is to build in scale during the summer months when the full-sized one is more fun.
