I will follow this one for sure. This is one of the best looking cars from the 80's. Are you planning to use original Six Cylinder Turbo engine, or swapping V8 engine for this one?

Billy,

Thanks for offering that will be helpful. Got back to work on the Regal tonight i'd removed the fuel tank, spare tire well, inner fenderwells & radiator shroud. I'd scratchbuilt a plate to fill the void where the A/C evaporator & blower motor once was.
