Your build look great. Had a good day, got both pockets for the A/C compressor and alt finished. Next I'll start on the trany mount to clear exhaust pipes

Just ordered a Walbro GPA-4 fuel pump for my new Tanks Inc fuel tank, and a Vintage air Gen II supra to start the fabing under the dash. I'm planing on mounting the PCM under the dash with a 20 cirt Mini breaker panel in the glove compartment, or what will be left of it after the evaporator is installed. We'll see , Fuel lines should be here shortly. Yesterday I took the Camaro tie rods to the machine shop to have them re-bore the taper in the steering arms, so the tie rods will be installed up side, this will give me about 3" to raise rack higher in the frame ------ to protect the hyd lines-- kinda hard to explain but i'll post some pix that will explain what i'm talking about---- this should work out GREAT----- one of those OH YEA moments if you know what I mean

A few pix of what is going on ---- Had to scrap the Camaro rack/pinion--- front steer rack on a rear steer car won't work--- Steered backwards left ,was right-- right, was left SUCKS. Sure did look great. Bought a unisteer setup. Harness is about done, starting on fuel lines.

Headed to Polson Mt to drop off my PCM to a tuner that has a business there and will flash this for me, it's always nice to talk to some one face to face-- he comes well recommended. Some more pix, fabing my cold air intake -- discs brakes.
