That's really the only thing were worried about... All the stuff needed to wire the car is included but the wiring harness is on back-order.

if you want it to look good and not have issues, l suggest you wait for it. We got lucky and had one next day'd to us, it made the process much smoother. Using the a wire out of a 5.0 car wasn't terrible, but their kit makes it easy as can be, plus all fresh new plugs since most people break all of the plugs on used ones.

We still have plenty of work to do like running brake and fuel lines. The stuff on back order is fairly vital stuff like the rear end, front lower control arms, spindles, some steering components, and some other small stuff. We still have to put dynamat or something similar along the front foot boxes and the firewall to keep the noise down. There's definitely a lot of work that still has to be done.

Progress has been decently slow the past couple days. The lack of parts has really put a limit on the amount of work that can be done. Luckily the front spindles and rear end are scheduled to ship tomorrow so early next week we should have some work to do. The engine is also suppose to ship at the end of this week so that should be showing up with the transmissions soon.

Since the last post I made not much has been done other then installing brake lines. Tomorrow I'm going to try and get the fuel lines bent and installed.

Part of me would rather drive it around without the body on it.

Also, you work pretty fast. 3 months is less that what I assume most people take when it comes to building these.

The plan for this one is blue with white stripes but yellow and black sounds like it would look good too.

We've put 45 miles on it just driving it without the body haha.

And ya we worked decently fast on this... it would have been done like a month ago if we would have had all the parts at once.



The windshield should be on tomorrow along with the exhaust and some other small parts, then the plan is to get it registered and drive it red until winter when it will painted.

And the seats finally showed up...
The car has been registered as a 65 replica so we get instant collector plates.
