got the car started today, some new pics..

Couple problems, couple leaks but she's running again. New hood coming this week and new air filter as well. Tweaked the ride height out back so now I think the stance is dead on. Drove her a little today but no insurance yet so had to stay on my street, Lol
Gave her about 1/2 throttle and she lit the tires so thats a good sign.

Thanks guys!
I ordered a 5" Glasstek cowl hood cause of the highrise intake and the carb spacer (which will be replaced by a nitrous plate) and also so I could get a decent air filter on it.
The hood in that pic has about a 3" and doesn't give any height where it's needed (hence the scoop) but the Glasstek hood will be plenty.

Thx guys.
The wheels are VS Work wheels. I got a deal on them.
Fronts are 18x8 with MT SR Radials 26x10 and the
Rears are 18x10 with the MT SR's 28x12.
Still working on the front centercaps.

Looks like maybe a catch can on the passenger side fender well. It looks to have a chrome top.
