Thanks!! I like the hood... Kinda keeps with the slab side theme...

Lets see...

I could rustle up a little burnout pic anytime now... I did a baby one in the driveway just to see if the halfshafts would stay together :devil: :devil:

Make a new Dash...
Fire bottle pull
2 pole bat disconnect
weld on the tabs for the 5 point harness before the belts expire :thud:
x-brace the door bar and the main hoop
Install the bat compartment doors
install the trick new sweet steering colunm
Make those trick three strut mirrors.... (I was thinking some CNC machined teardrop mounts and using rod ends and swaged aluminum throttle linkage to a CNC machined top mout and fasten the existing sport mirror)
Shorten the shifter 1"
Mount the drive shaft loop
convert the sway bar to rod ends...
Install the lower tubular a arms...
finish my new light weight spreader bar assembly with trick CrMo bolts
Replace the door hinges and bushings
Mount the new trick nascar hood strut
Patch/fill/make access plates for all of the holes I cut in the inside....
Install the Oil cooller lines and the PS cooler lines and the Oil temp sender
Do something about the air intake

Bend some stainless hard line for the supply and return fuel lines on the firewall and under thecar
...

Baseline chassis dyno tune...

Then...

Bigger solid roller Cam, Ported heads, Roller rockers, beehive Springs, MEFI4 tuning SW bigger TB, Nitrous plate behind the TB.

I really love this ROD 3.27/0.80 with the 3.08 rear. Just the right combo of bottom and top end...

:cheers:

Very cool man, glad to see your getting closer. Are you going to paint it yourself?

I was VERY close to getting a ramjet 502 motor, some days, I still wish I had. Main reason I didn't was the hood issues, although I saw a guy with a custom hood scoop molded on one of these forums (with a ramjet 502 under it) that looked great. If I had seen that earlier, I probably would have gone with it instead of my EFI 427 sb motor.
