I thought it was time to post my build progress. I owe a lot of gratitude to my friend Nels Prario for putting up with all my questions and pushing me to get er done. if it was'nt for him I'd still be polishing aluminum. Thanks Nels ;)

Thanks for the support everyone ! Rickster, the wire set I have is Taylor spiro pros. After seeing Nels Prarios, I returned the MSD wires and went with Taylors they are a much better fit with the 4 into 4's.
Later ! I got to get er done.

Thanks Rick for the kind words. Gotta tell everybody that Rick is a real perfectionist with his work. He is going to have a real show car when he is done. Everything is meticulously done.

Rick, that looks fantastic! Ver sanitary!
With Linwood's battery box, did you have interference problems with your emergency brake cables? Also, does the battery box fit perfectly between the front & rear cross tubes or was there modification needed?
Good luck with it.

Man, that's a clean and "shiny" build. I'm really digging the fuel cell. VERY professional looking there.

I like the polished alum. but I know myself better and I don't think I could keep up the maintenance on it. :( I'll live vicariously through your build on that point.

Jeff, I havent installed my e-brake cables yet but I dont foresee any problems,as far as the battery box goes you couldnt ask for a better product. The box does not get riveted on the sides until you install it between the cross tubes, giving it all the flexabilty you may need for installation. It's very well made and worth the money !

Hey Rick,
Looks great except for the wires it puked up. I had the same problem, just stuffed them all back in. I just posted the self stick wire anchors from Home Depot. They help to organize all the wires and you don't have to drill holes in those nice polished panels.
Keep working at it.
