Here's the roll bar with plates and grommets.  Used 8-32 x 1" stainless oval head screws with flat washer and nylon locking nuts.

Russ, thanks for the update.  My car came with the old "bug eye" head light buckets and I had to change them for the Wipac buckets as well. I also did the same as you on the quick jacks and hood scoop. Like you said, final assembly is fun and you can throw the boxes away. Keep the pics coming. It won't be long now.

Russ,
Your car looks great. The stripes compliment the base color well. Thanks for the tips on the head light buckets and jacks. Our body/painter requested that he mount the headlights, so I will be passing that information to him. Yes, it does feel good to see those boxes go away. I have condence the remaining material into two smaller boxes. One for th body guy and the other for when the car comes back. Please continue to update us on the project. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Russ.  Yeah, I chose that color combination 6 years ago and haven't deviated.

Here the side vents after I got them installed.  I made some brackets from 1-1/4" angle, drilled some holes and put riv-nuts in the brackets.  I had the body guy glue the brackets/vents in as an assembly with panel/seam adhesive.  He used some extra long vice grip clamps that he had modified for the extra length.  Worked really well.  Better than I could have done.  Removed the vents so he could finish up the body work.  I used some 10-24 x 3/4" stainless button head screws to hold the side vents in place.  That way they can be removed if needed.  Here's some pix.
