Thank you, but I had one with the smaller fin and it was a lot easier to open/close with a larger fin.

Transmission is done and ready to go. Engine is being assembled, flares are tacked on the car and starting the front horn grill/turn signal panel to the fender. The light boxes as usual need a ton of work

I do not know why the pictures come up sideways here but it really bothers me

Engine is coming together nicely, thank you Mark @Kinninger Built
PMO throttle bodies just came in along with Aasco springs and retainers, and the custom red border engine compartment decals from Car-Bone

I am going out of my mind with all my photos going sideways when I download them

Simply lovely.

How are you uploading/downloading images? Each time an image changes hands, it is likely processed, and the EXIF metadata that determines orientation is possibly "corrected" each time. The iPhone is notorious for this, as is vBulletin for ignoring the orientation flag, which is the (ancient) software Pelican uses:

Are the horn and turn signal boxes repop? I didn't see a mention of those?

My iPhone sends photos to iCloud I download to pelican from MacBook or iMac. The pictures look fine as I view them but are always sideways when they populate on pelican.

Is your father in law the same Benny on the tv show Extreme Car Hoarders? I temporarily live in Jakarta Indonesia and watch the cars shows on tv and regularly read this forum to get my cars fixes. Enjoy reading about your projects, thanks for sharing!

Yes he is the same Benny on the TV show. Here in the US the show is called "Lords of the Car Hoards" and "Rusted Development"

The show was cancelled but they are working on putting out another show.

Spectacular !!
Will the ITG sausage filters provide enough "overhorn"clearance to get good airflow?
Why ITG ? Better than K&N , Pipercross?

The guy doing my gauges was so speedy that he finished before the artwork for the tach was completed. In all fairness I just decided to do it over the weekend so when I called him Monday morning and he said he was finished, well what could I say, more $$ now.
Don't know if I should delete the ump/rpm or move it up a little or above the needle

I think with any phone you post from you have to take the picture in wide view. The website rotates the photo to short and wide. Or take the picture in square mode. With iPhone square mode is a lens option.

I like the lower version with the UPM/RPM. Looks Factory. I don't thing having the writing at the top will look good. I can't remember seeing it there on any tach.

Keep and move up a bit in my opinion for better visual harmony... Having a scale or unit of measure on a gauge is cool, regardless of how obvious it is!

great project, by the way, just like the last two. Enjoying the updates.

What are those copper colored nuts inside the transmission? Are they fiber lock nuts? If they are the studs don't protrude enough for the fiber lock part to work. Fiber lock nuts with lock washers. Looks weird or is this something that was learned the hard way? Just curious.....
