  1. Oh Yeah, Super Snake , that's the one.
     
  2. Firewall being smoothed:

  3. Got all the ceramic coated parts back yesterday, they look amazing.

    Ah, more fiberglass fitment issues - the front end is a problem.

    The firewall is done, got told the under belly of the car is a mess and needs cleanup, ahh, more money, the side skirts have been fitted and mounted - they look good. I was hoping to have the car in May, not it looks like end of summer at this rate. Gotta say I'm disappointed today.

  4. So my body guy is going to work through the fitment issues and do what he has to do to make the fiberglass fit. He also think it will fit and hold up better if we bond the front-end together as one solid piece. This will also allow him to fill-in the gaps and smooth the fiberglass.

  5. I haven't been able to get mine down off the lift ,got real busy all of a sudden .I will try to get it down in the next day or two. Looking better. The lower valance needs to be pulled forward to match the headlight buckets ,try that first then bolt the joint . swinging the bottom of the fender left or right will lower or raise the the headlight bucket at the hood.
     
  6. These photos were from last week. I usually go down on Fridays. I'll have new photos and an idea of where the fiberglass is then. Like I said, the top isn't bad, it's the bottom valance that is way off.
     
  7. Finally got the head light buckets mounted, we tried a few different ways, I finally just told him to bond them on. They were thin in areas and it just seemed like the smarted move. He's cutting up the lower nose to make it fit better. Stang-aholics never offered any help or bothered or bothered to call me back.

    I just want this car done already - 10 years in June.

    I'm doing something different with the truck, I had to raise the fuel cell to make room for the 3" exhaust and dual tips. So I'm having the guy that made my center support bracket come over to make me a frame for the fuel cell to raise it up, but I'm also making a compartment in front of the tank drop area for the fuel system to be housed (an enclosed box to protect and display the nice Holley Billet Fuel Pump and Filters.
