I'd love to have that gas tank on my living room table just so i could sit and look at it with my friends. Great work. Keep it up.

Yeah me too. It does look better than antisipated. Using good paint helps. Thx.

Had a couple early shift rods and a short shift rod and quickly made a short shifter that's not short. It's also angled 10 degrees toward the wheel.

HC T4 2 liter installed. MSD wires, Direct Fire twincoil ignition.
The half shafts are restored but need assembly, gear oil change and I'm making my 'stinger' exhaust
I need to restore the fan i know. Maybe this Winter.

Closing in on the end for this thread. (I'm as relieved as you)
New Bosch starter and half shafts in today.
All that's left is the exhaust.

Got close with the exhaust/heat exchangers but ran out of inert gas.
I had a feeling that would happen.
Tank #6 on this project.
