No, now comes the part that throws my anxiety through the roof. Even though I feel confident in the engine and tranny, I still get really nervous about firing up an engine for the first time.

Itís funny you mention design changes. Most of the design hasnít changed a bit on this car. I had a vision in my head on how I wanted this car to look and Iíve pretty well nailed it. Iím sure itíll get all the shock factor that Iím looking for without going overkill on the ďratĒ appearance.

I agree with you JB, I don't like the really rough 'over-kill rat' look, when a car can look quite pleasing with 'out-of-the-box' additions and no shine. You have 'nailed' the latter. Keep on tinkering.

Glad to see you replaced the filter, that Holley one will serve you much better.

It's looking great, I wouldn't think you should have any trouble getting it running and roadworthy before April.

With the car coming to an end of its build, there wonít be many updates from here on out. I do have another car coming into the shop very shortly. So stay on the lookout for my next build. Itís gonna be something else.

Got a good chunk of the windshield frame built over the last couple of days. Need to decide if I want it to swing out or not. Got a template for the glass made and sent it to the closest glass shop, should be done in a few days, should be.
