I mentioned to a friend that it has a pretty good bark. He asked me to prove it.

I've been doing many mods to my coupe, all directed toward making it a road trip car. One of the biggest mods has been to get as much space in the trunk area as possible. This included significant changes to the frame, a custom fuel tank, relocation of some parts and a good bit of aluminum fabrication. I finally finished the last of it yesterday and I'm thrilled with the results! I threw in a couple of suitcases, one full size and on carry-in size, to show just how much space is there. It looks like plenty for a couple of weeks on the road!

The trunk rear wall and the side panels are all removable for access to the fuel fill tube and the rear wiring. There are also access panels to the fittings on the fuel tank.

At the risk of jinxing it the plan is to be ready for some shakedown miles by the time the state gives me a title and tags. Estimate 4 weeks ... maybe.
I have a couple of significant things to work on till then. More later.

That looks great Glenn.
Are you able to get to wiring/gauge lock rings easy if something goes wrong? Only reason I'm asking is I'm glad I made removable panels on my dash so I don't have to take the whole thing apart. Recently struggled through a gas gauge issue and I had the gauge in and out numerous times. On yours I could envision a separate square plate that comes of the main dash structure for instance.
On mine the main gauge pod as well and the pods in the center console all come out individually,

I really like your dash, John. Especially with those signatures!!! I toyed with a layout like that but i kept coming back an arrangement I’ve seen in GT40s.
This piece will be mounted on brackets at the bottom that will let it pivot to a face-down position for easy access.
