More...... Note the smoothed and contoured fire wall. We did a lot of alteration there. This was done to accomodate the Vintage Air (lack of heater box), and a larger, slightly recessed tranny tunnel ( we were able to set the motor 2 inches back, and install a larger 4L80e tranny)...paint soon!

Bat, Thanks...I am hoping for paint in about a week or 2. Then electrical (me)...then engine/drive train (me and Richie). After that, off to the upholstery shop for some alterations inside. .....so YES I am hoping for a test ride but it'll probably be late fall/early winter. Eric
