Lookin' good! Are you going to put add a cross over pipe in the exhaust. Nice and easy to do while you're there.

Ready to pull my hair out , I've been to half a dozen wrecking yards trying to find an alternator and power steering brackets that will work on my 351w. I orderd a T-Bracket from James Duff (Bronco Parts) for the alternator, the power steering bracket will work if I drill new holes and fill in the original holes
This build is starting to Really get on my nerves
But in the end it will be worth it and being able to say I've done everything and not paid for a Hot Rod
Sorry for the rant
Peace out
