Looking good there Joey !!
Glad the suitcase bump worked out for you. I like the curved bar over the top of the flat one above the suitcase bump. I have my bump out a bit higher up on the rear cockpit wall which eliminated the chance for the horozontal bar. It's all trade offs !!
Keep on going
I'll be posting more pics soon on mine

I made the bump myself. It is slightly smaller than the one Nick sales. Although hindsight 20/20 I would have had him make me one to the dimensions I wanted. The inside will be covered with Naugahyde like the originals I had to take it back off to finish up a couple details but I'll snap a pic once it's back on.

I would love to see it...did you have to go smaller because of the chassis or was it just personal preference? I am looking at doing the same with the Naugahyde for the s/c appearance...

Thanks again!

Here is the suitcase bump. Still may have Nick make me one. I will try to roll the car out this weekend and take some better pics.

Looking good...I have been trying to figure out how I am going to do the rear bulkhead...
Nice work on exposing the roll cage. I also added a "Faux Racing battery to draw the eye away from the shelf (that should not be there) and the FFR trussing between the trans tunnel and bulkhead...

I may have to steal this one. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to incorporate a faux battery of some kind.
