Now the parts are rolling in, clutch, brake parts, electrical, fuel system, and the only cool part to look at, the windshield just got done.

Spent a long time thinking about how to do headlights, decided on some SBC connecting rods.

With everything going on up front, I wanted to find the smallest blinkers I could, hope a video will load.

And motor and trans back out, gotta try to make time to get the motor assembled this week. If all goes well, I should be firing it up next weekend. Found a great place to reline my stock clutch and provide a new throwout bearing, for lots cheaper than buying Chinese ones from a certain popular supplier.
