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.
Trunk view to the outside, hope to not see this again!
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.
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.
New tunnel plate, it is removable for trans access. The floor shifter (Crites part) is visible in the background
Hole for new wiring routing to not be visible from under the hood
Revised visor mount, old one was not accessible due to the cage
Lonely waiting for final body work then primer. Unfortunately because of the cold weather the primer will have to cure for 2 weeks before final blocking and paint.
I will be running the same 351C set up that came out, just freshening the short block as the heads were done when I switched to a roller cam. Just picked up the block and need to clean it and reassemble.
QUESTION- how do you guys clean a block fresh from the machine shop?
Planning to scrub with brushes and hot soapy water then oil down surfaces.
