    I have no heat, no ac, no smog either, i just got rid of the whole firewall block all together, ran a line from the back of the intake to the booster to clean things up

    I just capped all those off, not like you need them with no smog equipment. You may need to keep the a/c lines for the heater

So i will need my booster, my ac vacum line , my reserve canister and my pressure regulato.. cool ..thanks

    don't know if that was intended but I don't see why not if you get the right fitting and have enough room to run a line

    Those valve covers and water neck came out awesome. I'd hit them with some clear coat to protect the polished look from weather.

    Well I did some more work on the stang today..Need to do some other minor stuff..like connect the electric fan. my electrical on the lineloc.havent done my upper vacuum stuff not sure how im going to connect them to the intake....I actually bumped into my front bumper and chiped the paint you can barely notice it but i know its there so i want to fix that.. i also broke through like in 4 spots when i sanded...i need to touch those up to..oh and paint my cowl cover and tail light housings That i forgot...

    How much do i need to scuff around the damaged area???
    Do i need to respray the whole panel with clear??
    i actually have lots off clear left so i was thinking of hitting those spots with base and clearing most of the car to give it some more clear coats..Good idea or bad idea???

    Man that looks great! Really like the tilt hood too. What wheel (bench or hand held) and compounds did you use to polish the aluminum with?
