Well I got the roof done today. I am running out of things to do until I get my engine. I should have it within the next 2 weeks. Here is the roof done and I also painted the center caps of my wheels with the blue I used on my stripe.

Well here are some pics of the engine. It will be put on the dyno this week and broken in. Then I will bring it to the shop and paint the engine before the install. Also I installed the new aluminum radiator and fan setup on the car. My metal fab guy at work made the radiator support for the car. Of course I will pull off the core support to drop the engine in.

Good luck with the car :) It's always a blast to take the car out, and the project seems nice :)

Well we got the motor broken in on wed. so now I am putting the rest of the car togther. Got the driver fender on today. Will do the rest this week and put the exhaust on also. I sure hope after driving it the suspension will settle. Otherwise I will have to lower it 2 inches.

Almost there. I will be putting the front facia on wed. OK Dave it also looks like I will need a different shaker. Mine is sitting about a 1/2 inch to far forward.
