Test fit

Here are a few pictures test fitting the grill and test fender halfs in place to check alignment.

Seems most everything will fit with a little tweaking and grinding here and their.

Also installed the other Chassis works inner fender support and trimmed the aluminum panel to fit.

*Note for anyone using the auto rad stuff you will have to grind your grill support pieces to allow fitment of the Auto Rad radiator support.

Nice fab work....coming right along....gonna go out on a limb here and say I don't think you have enough tire on the rear of this thing.... :eek:

Thanks.

You are correct sir. Eventually when I am all finished at set of 315's will slide in places of the 235's currently on the car.

update

Figured I would do a little update since the last go round.

- I have been working primarily on the front end getting all the hoses routed and pulleys in place.

- Installed the Vintage air Pro line horizontal dryer for the AC system
- Installed the resto-mod Air bulkhead fitting for my ac lines
- Installed the hamburger oil filter adapter
- I was able to line up all the pulleys where needed
- Installed the jones racing pulley onto the vacuum pump

Close

My guess is that's a Precision 6766 for your setup?
It is a T4 6466 SP CEA-2-BB1w/TH8166a .81AR

I could have gone bigger if I was only going in a straight line and had a lot of time to spool. This is better for a track day if I want faster spool and acceleration.

Air conditioning hose installation

I have been working on hose routing of the AC lines that has consumed more time than I would have liked. My goal is to keep most of it under the fenders.

The AC system came from Restomod air, The hose ends are a combination of Restomod air and vintage air. I purchased a $135 dollar crimper off Amazon and so far it has done the job well. I wrapped all the hoses with a PET nylon rub guard and then used heat shrink tube with adhesive on the ends to clean it up.

Parts used so far.

3- # 10 bulkhead fittings -2 with 90 degree hose barb one with 90 degree #10 hose crimp end

1- #6 bulkhead hose fitting

3- #10 straight hose ends

4- #10 90 hose ends

2- #10 90 hose barb

4-#6 hose end 90's

2-#6 hose end straight

1- #8 hose 90

1-#8 for the compressor with charge port 90

1-#10 for the compressor with charge port 90

1 -Restomod air bulkhead with 4 connections.

1-vintage air horizontal pro line drier with parker drier element

1- trinary switch and vintage air t line # 6 fitting

AC lines

I have completed the AC lines on the passenger side and here are a few pictures of the final routing.

Also I have mounted one of my AFCO/DSE M2 adjustable coil overs on the rear.

My father was in town and he installed the bucket seat brackets and then some custom overlay brackets which move the seat back 3".

Not yet pictured is the air to water intercooler and boosted solutions BOV also installed this past weekend.

Very Nice build! You have a ton of time and I'm sure just about as much money invested. Not to mention great skills also...

I actually had one wrapped as it would be very very expensive to have one made.

I don't know how I missed this build before. This thing is wicked!

Awesome build, I love everything except the spoiler(sorry just mo). I'm curious, why the inline 6 when there is much cheaper power to be had such as the LS platform?
I don't know, but I definitely give extra points for taken this path less traveled. While you are at it, look into the epoxied lump port kit combined with shorty head studs & removal of the center divider in the intake ports (courtesy of the shorty head studs). Offered by: Tom Lowe https://www.12bolt.com/


and also check out this supplier: https://mrhotrod6.myshopify.com/products/74cc-stage-1-intake-lump-ported-head-250-292-chevy-inline-6-cylinder?variant=1142522453

And of course if you haven't already, check out Tom Langdon: http://www.langdonsstovebolt.com/

I assume that you have already checked out Leo Santucci's great book: https://www.amazon.com/Chevrolet-Inline-Six-Cylinder-Power-Manual/dp/1931128278

Thanks for the notes, I have been in contact with most of the guys you mentioned above. Mr hotrod 6 built my head as well. Here is a link to my engine build up which I posted separately.
