Really looks good. Just make sure you read on the painting if you're doing it yourself because you don't want to wind up like...well...

I should have looked more under your dash when I dropped by to get mine from you. Good luck with your swap. Hope mine goes well.

Few days ago had a chance to weld up the different wire and hose inlets that go trough the fire wall









Also had to extend the steering column outlet cause the bushing would not fit

First coat I put on the welds was a fiberglass based filler,( fiberal-Upol ) it helps seal any pin holes that I might have missed. Sanded that down





Then I put a coat of light weight filler, in other words (bondo)





..........waiting for it to dry........

From experience: don't do that. Great looking build thus far. Looks like you are making some really good progress.

Always fun to peel that tape off and reveal what's underneath

Also we went ahead and threw the engine in after we installed the brake lines
