Hope the interior comes out to your liking, as I am sure the exterior did.

As for the door panels are gonna go for an original look to them or those custom styled ones? I prefer the OG's, IMHO.
I was going back with the original, but the wife wants a slightly custom touch.....I'll have to see what the upholsterer offers, but nothing real fancy or retro, just some nice clean lines....

Slowly getting the interior worked out. Think I am just going to go with stock right now, need to have the headliner installed. Haven't been driving it much except around the neighbor hood, working out a few bugs. Car is running a little too hot for me, around 190. Other car ran at 170-175 all day long. Going to rework the steam vent and see what happens.

Runs like a scalded dog....the 3" CBR pipes and mufflers have a unique sound to them, and really come alive when you hit it, just cruising around is very quiet.

She's all but done really, just no real progress to show.

Clearance at front is right at 1/2", but it will work...



T,
Hi Tom - I am interested in making a mechanical clutch fan work on the same engine setup as you've installed (factory accessory brackets, +1" offset on engine mount plates). May I ask you to tell me what the distance is (measured perpendicularly) between the clutch fan mount and the radiator? Also, please let me know the radiator thickness. It's gonna be tight...

A lot of high-quality workmanship in your builds, by the way. Am working to line things up to bring another build your way...

Best Regards / Ron

I would think so, they just appear to be sewn into the cover itself. A good upholstery shop should be able to fix it.....
