Randy,

Great idea for the oil pressure idiot light.

I also made the braces for the dash support, going to run the speedometer and oil temp thru them like everyone else.

Was looking at your photos, really great clear shots...looks like a great job so far.   Was wondering if you had gone back and rounded out the corners on each of your cut corners.  Some times they will crack and check from these small over cuts.  I usually drill a hole in each corner before I start drilling and if I have a corner I can't drill (or I forgot) I usually use a rat tail file to make a half round or so in each corner.

Yes, I need to go back over everything.
Filing the corners is a good idea, like stop drilling a crack.

ranman,

did you get your motor from T & L? why did you end up going with the 427w over the 418w? what upgrades did you go with, is there anything you'd change?

Hey Shawn,
Its from M & R engines

 http://mandrengines.com

2 year warrentee

the valve covers where swapped out for $40 extra, pulley set was $400, and I went with the MSD dist and control box.

I went with what they said works well, I have not started it yet, its a rear sump, the only slight problem is with the starter, I went with the Mini starter from summit, the terminal are now positioned between the starter and the oil pan not a lot of room maybe 2", I just hooked the wires up prior to installing the starter not a big deal.

They are easy do deal with, I had no problems, short build time and free shipping.

I was having some problems with the front wheel inserts sitting flush with the rim, I spoke with Mike and Rich about this and said I needed to sand down the high spots and they would fit better. I did sand them down as far as I dare without putting holes thru the inserts but was still unhappy with the final look, so I filled in the area with Kitty Hair and now they look great.

I took some 3/16 rubber insulation tape and went around the insert to make a stop for the Kitty Hair.

Heater box.

I change the direction of the box so the outlets of the core would be behind the dash so I can run the hoses on the outside of the firewall.   Also can remove the heater from under the dash if needed.  Will make new covers and outlets where I need them.
