And the BEST shot so far IMHO

Time to get floored.



It helps to have small hands for this step.

I rolled a few X's to give it a more stock look.

I don't mean to be smart but, I have to wonder if the accelerator pedal will work in that position? I could never get my foot in this location. LOL

Naw: I was just trying to figure out how I was going to use a stock pedal with mechanical linkage. I.E. no Lokar Cable!
I didn't want anything new looking on my engine.

On to the headlight bar, thanks Beppie for all the ideas. It would have been nice for you to hold everything in place while I tack welded it!

What an awesome stance! You nailed it man. Your coupe is a work of art. What is the width of the front axel, and are those 145/65/15r tires?

That's a good one!. Welding up door gaps & tweaking hinges 1/16" is a long and tedious process. Should be done soon.

Duane, you did a great job on fitting the doors.  Very few people realize the amount of work involved to get doors to line up this well.

And congrats on the pups !
