Wow...beautiful paint, that flake is .....:headbang:

There's just something extra special about these slow pain-staking builds...especially when they start to fall in to place. Good luck with the progress.

Looking forward to the end result.
(Not nearly as much as you are though, I bet :banana: haha)

Any chance of some photos of the finished trans tunnel and how much extra height was needed to clear the box before you completely re assemble the interior? Also what have / are you doing about the heater box that sits above it?
Thanks

I noticed it's been said before, but this is just amazing! I've always dreamed of doing something like this... If I can make it to the WCCS in August, I really hope to see your car there! I'll have to be careful not to drool all over it, ha! Good luck finishing the project! :popcorn:

That turned out outstanding, I'm drooling for sure.

Where did you get the new hardware? I cannot find Metric Stainless with that style head.
