    still collecting parts i am working on buttoning up the motor now bought new clutch and pressure plate and i am thinking of getting a high flow water pump.i anticipate driving it this summer as far as getting it done i hope .i still have to get the fuel lines and brake lines and i need to get the t-top seals so that i can get going on the interior.the motor will be in in two weeks funds are low now since i have been waiting 5 weeks to get paid and i am on crutches so i have to do things sitting down.i am still unsure if i want to go with long tubes or shorties my fear right now is the heat from the headers affecting the shock towers.

    Awsome build thread. You surely know your way around body and fiberglass work.

    As far as the headers, I'd go shorties. The pain and agony associated with long tubes just isn't worth the couple of extra horses from them.

    thanks for the compliment i was pricing the long tubes on 50 resto and they're like 500 bucks ouch!!i am not worried about the extra horsepower but i am willing to pay that much to keep the heat away from the strut towers .

    You built a pool hall? Damn, I thought my ManCave was bad ass with 55" HDTV, Surround Sound, Gaming PC- iRacing Chair / Steering Wheel & Controls, NASCAR fenders hanging on the walls. Pretty slick man.

    Nice job Sam! Those door panels are killer! You going to be ready for WW? Did you get my text on Sunday? After last years WW, I will not be there this year. Local fair is going on and will be at that.
