Had a thread going in the intro section, time to make it a build thread. Car was started 5 years ago but then a couple moves and a house reno took all my time. Back on it full steam.

Starting where I left off in the intro thread, more work on the camouflage... tucking the sequential mechanism into the console. Hurst handle looks old school trick. Will have to bring the cable thru the interior but can tuck it by the seat and hide it with a cover and carpet. Snapshot of a lower control arm front and rear after sleeving with 1.5" square tube for additional strength and relocating the pickup points inboard to better align to the suspension rocker arms and clear the tires.

Picked up the cross bar and tie rod mounts from the machine shop today. Will need to put it in the car as a separate piece so just fitted together here for the pix. The 3 holes allow me to adjust the tie rod rotation point if I change the upper A length for different camber gain. I can space the tie rod off of the bracket to alter Ackermann.

the joys of buying a used car that had floor pan work... I have NO idea what this tunnel is out of but I don't think it's 66 Nova. The tunnel cover sure as hell isn't. I had no idea it was wrong but the console just would not sit right so I started searching the net for floor picks with a 4 spd. Not actually that easy to get detail but it became clear the hump was totally wrong so I ordered one online. The floor was so hacked I have basically had to graft this new hump to the old one. DAPO strikes again. Also relocated the mechanism again as I raised it higher now that the tunnel makes sense. Getting a little closer each weekend.
