Progress! Or at least it is for me

Finally found some pipe that will allow me to make connection between the sprint car cap and the fuel cell.

Cut the pipe I had for the collector extensions, welded them up (after several hours of checking, measuring, etc etc....I don't know why I get so preoccupied with making both sides the same, it's not like you can see both sides at the same time!)

So, I'm really happy with how it turned out. Can't wait to hear them!

...and one quick shot of my sightline from inside the car.

Looking really good Bill, but we have to see these pics large.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I really appreciate the feedback everyone! (especially when it's positive )

Little more progress today - installed this old license plate bracket and light that was kicking around the shop, I'm not even sure what it's off, but I like it.

Started insulating the doors, installed the window guides and windows. They even crank up and down decently!

I did a little more insulating around the back window - enough that I can finally hook up the filler neck.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
