Where do you get your wiring harness from? Pretty professional looking.

Craig : you are building an exact replica of my car! I too have the 42 gal tank and went with the fuel gauge. The sending unit is a standard float on a swing arm, mounted in the access plate at the fwd edge of the tank bottom center section, so it only reads up to about 1/2 tank, but to paraphrase Raul Julia,
"What is above that does not matter".

The wiring harness are made in the UK to order, they are very nicely made.
I can supply along with all the other components to complete the cars wiring.

Well done! The wiring can be such a pain, as there is not a lot of room to work in. What are you using for wheels? Looks great.

Last of the aluminum panels made and fitted, inner front fenders and the last trunk panel.

Jim, wheels are the standard 427 style.

Next up was glueing the foam barrier on the underside of the fenders.
This is a pita job, much easier to do before the car goes down on the ground.

Speaking of on the ground, these are the wheel tire combo for this one.

The smell of new Avons, Nice!

This is a great picture of the car, taken just before putting the wheels on.

And on the ground!!

Big big milestone, bring on the 427!

Thanks Jim, the car is coming along nicely.

Sorry I can't make your wish come true, this one is spoken for, but I can always add you to the list

Installed the rear quick jacks and finished out the trunk lid.

Really nice! In some light the red is really RED, but the last couple photos look very orange. Is it due to the flash?
