If I wasn't on the back 9 of this hobby, Cobrakiwi, I'd be giving you a call.
Excellent stuff.

Thanks Rodney.
More progress on this one, I got the foot box's fitted and mounted, made up the firewall and got that installed.
I did not get time to make and fit all these inner panels prior to paint ,(paying for that decision now ) so now I need to be super careful not to scratch up the paint fitting these .
This one is really coming along nice.

Front Transmission cover ......you might want to change from a 90* degree to a 45*degree angle to be able to remove the bell housing in the car....if necessary.....

Just a thought.

No need, that panel is a removable panel for trans / clutch service, a few screws and it's out.

A few more jobs being done on this one, trimmed the inner sides and added the sill plates.
Headlights and park lights installed.
A feature of the 427 street cars is the added panel in the radiator opening, made the panel, then test fit and sent out for paint.

Finished making the fuel tank up, these street car tanks are a lot smaller than the big tanks we build for SC and comp car's, more fuel station stops.

Looks great Craig. That is one large splitter, looks like it should add aero effects as well.

Thanks,

Next up is dash time, the street car dash lay out is actually a first for myself.
Help from a couple good friends and a few good pictures we have it looking good.

Windscreen washer fluid bottle mount made up and installed. The trico bottle then slides into the mount from the top.

Floor carpet complete.
