Sweet! Will those side bars pass tech like that, or are you just going Pro Street?

A few more from the body shop

Here you can see a new outer wheel house being made that has lots of clearance for a big tire.

A closer look

You can see one of the front fenders already patched. You can also see the forward bars of the cage and the dash bar, very pleased with how it fits. Once it is painted to match the dash and doors it will blend right in.

Got these engraved for a Christmas gift, great girlfriend! Should look good with fresh paint, got the idea from the new GT 500 ones.

Your moving right along nice job.is the roll bar a kit? I like the way it tucks in are you doing the bodywork or is it at a shop? Working on mine weekends should have in paint soon,good luck and keep the pics coming.

Re: 66 Street/Strip Fairlane Restoration
 
The roll bar was a kit but we modified it because it didn't fit the way I wanted. The car is at a shop, don't have the skill or patience for body work. I will be handling all the reassembly once they are done, hopefully first of March.

Quarters on and new outer wheel houses, lots of extra room. The rear fender lips are also rolled with the wheel house, very rigid and extra room.
