Nice !
Not trying to be a jerk but have done quite a bit of electrical work over the years, looks like the outlet behind the work bench and
the "LB" dropping down to the fridge outlet are done in PVC.
For safety reasons it's best to use metallic tubing in a garage environment, EMT is a good choice for a residential garage.
Only because PVC can be cracked/broken fairly easily if hit ( potential short hazard ) , especially when cold.
Again not trying to be annoying just some advise, Lord knows I could always use some.

Thanks! I will always take advice on how to do things better/ right. I guess I see your point about the conduit breaking.
I did a short run a while ago from the panel with 3 outlets for the workbench, and just finished it up for the frige mostly with what I had (and Ace did not have a regular pull ell).
Luckily the conduit and outlets are usually behind all the crap that get piled on the bench! Lol

Most guys asking that price for one, with broken tabs. Might have to pull the trigger. Thanks!!
Goop or E6000 clear gel adhesive is a good solution to holding new hooks/clips on the back side of plastic trim. Once it is dry, it is still a bit flexible and very strong. It’s not just for shoes and plumbing.

I ended up buying some on eBay with good clips, but I saved my old ones.
If I ever add the rear shock brace, I’ll use the old to cut up, and try what you suggested.

Ordered some more parts today. Moser rear axles, front rotors, front shocks! My 5-lug 4 wheel disc parts list is getting closer and closer to being complete!

I have a set of brand new 3.73 gears that came with the car also. I’m really debating on putting them in, or buying 3.55 and selling the 3.73. Either way, a gear change will happen this winter too!

All the parts from Summit are going to a buddies house in NH. Saved me the tax, plus his wholesale discount. I’m going there anyway, so why not.
Just ordered my NRC brackets tonight.
2020 may have sucked so far, but I’ll do my best to make the last few months better than the first 8! Gonna have good progress on the car!
An order for my springs, and then the wheels and tires and I may be set! Maybe rear shocks once I get the old ones out. I’m probably not going to want to put old crap back in!

In the meantime, I had these shipped to my doorstep. I have to say I was a little skeptical at first about almost $200 for these. But after seeing them, they are solid, well made, and all hardware, including brake line adapters included! Money well spent on North Race Car brackets!

Look well made from the pics.
I was about to order a set when I did my 4 lug rear disc but ended up
finding a set of modified T/C brackets with hardware for $40 , couldn't pass them up.

Isn’t the sn95 rear wider than fox?
And I hope you got pix of that frog/worm thing!
Yes, by .75in on each side. You can use 05-09 wheels since they have the correct offset/backspacing to address the increased width. That is what I did on mine.

If you run 94-04 17x8 wheels, it brings them right to the edge of the fender lip and looks ideal. Depending on the tire size, and how low you are, you can even get away without needing to roll the fender lips. When I ran 245/45/17's and a moderate drop, It never touched the fenders. After swapping to 255's out back and lowering it more once I was on coil-overs, it lightly kissed. I prob didn't need to roll fenders at that point, but I did anyway. I think the fit is perfect.

But this is with the extra 0.75" SN95 axles and a 255/45/17 out back.

I’m going with Fox length Moser axles. If I had to buy today, I’d be going with 17x9 Fr500 replicas from LMR. We’ll see where my tastes are once I’m at that point.
