Finally found some time to get back at it......steering box is mounted now - had to revise one of the holes in the bracket supplied, as it's a blind hole now. The master cylinder is installed as well - I made one bracket for practice, because sometimes it's just more fun to make two. I usually like to make the first one, just a little bit too short, then I know for sure what size to make the second one!

Holy warm here today.....no snow left, hardly needed any heat in the shop, so that was nice. I managed to clean up a few things, installed a bearing in the bottom of my steering column, and built the headlight brackets.....lots of debate on where to put them, but settled on this location. I didn't want the brackets to look too large, nor did I want them very long - as I'm worried about those big headlights shaking.....(I know, there's bound to be some feedback on that comment!)

Thanks everyone!....made a little more progress today - another small load of parts showed up last week, so now the steering is all hooked up - from column to the box, and the tie rods are in! Once I get the gas pedal sorted out (very little room between the column, brake pedal and the transmission hump), it will just about be time to break it all down and start painting! The timing should work out about right for warmer weather.

Default Finally....

Well, it's been a while, but here's some updates.....steering is hooked up, shifter is in, mounted a couple of small gas shocks on the trunk lid, etc....lots of little things getting done up, but lots of life in the way as well! Got started on trying to layout my dash.....I need some more opinions on that one....Oh, one more thing....my "helper" decided to experiment with a rad cap....while I was working on another car........it sure made me laugh.....

Wow Bill, you are moving right along......that's gotta feel good!
That radiator cap is really not a bad idea, if it's over heating you just open up the spigot and blow it on the ground instead of in your face.

Looking good man . Hey, where'd you get that nifty double tie rod end? Looks like a great solution for hooking up the drag link for the cross steering.
