    The only problem I ran into was that the oil filler is in the way of the TB. So I had to cut off the filler and put a low profile cap in its place. Even then the TB touches it. Going to play hell when adding oil.
    So while I had the valve cover off I thought Id take a pic of the beautiful innards.

    It runs pretty good but I still have a small vacuum leak somewhere. I hate tracking them down. Then I just need to do a good tuning on her. And take care of some more clean up stuff. But its drivable! :banana: I switched over to a Explorer GT40 manifold and had to do some modifying to get it to fit and clear everything with the tall valve covers. Like adding a 1" spacer. So now the strut tower brace dont fit and the intake rubs on the hood.

    As promised here are the finished interior pics. The car is mostly complete. But I have a bunch of odds and ends to clean up.

    I didnt get the custom embroidery because of the cost. That money got spent on the engine. Oh well it still looks good I think.

    And then of course the engine.
