I'm sure punkur is ready!

Not quite ready yet. I still have a list...
-Minor plumbing to the brakes and turbo feed-Axles and cv's-Re-wire the whole car-Mount the new battery up front-New front shock mounts for the bypasses (just need to double sheer the old mounts and box them in. already have them cut)-A new temporary dash to use till I get my new tin work done-Drink cooler mount-Bolt the new seats and harnesses in
But I am definitely on the downhill of the project.

All the "small stuff" seems to take forever. Looking good!

Thanks! Not only have i learned over the years but have purchased more tools to make work better and easier. I wish i had the tools and knowledge when i first built the car.

We all do. I can only imagine what I could have built in the last 40 years if I'd had the tools/knowledge/mentors then that I have now.

Finished most of the car up tonight and ran it around the block. Still need to adjust some things but hope to use this weekend to work out the any bugs. I still need to install my rugged 60 watt radio and wire up the PTT buttons and rear headsets but all the major work is done. I will be making my way to Outfront for a retune after the first of the year so we can bump this motor up a little more.
