Man, some 20" steelies would really make this car for me.

The chrome just doesn't fit well with the perfect patina imo. Killer build either way man

I like the factory exhaust exit. I hope you're running a full exhaust on this thing.

Took the factory tank out and had Mike Hall at Halls race cars do the sump. -10 feed -8 return. Wasn't loosing the stock gauge or trunk space.

Awesome build, are you going to keep the patina on the outside?

I think that a set of beadlock'd rears with a set of front skinnies up front would look killer (in race trim)

I will have a drag pack for sure!!! And yes the patina is getting cleared over just to preserve the car and I'll do a wrap at some point if I feel like changing it up

100% agree. The exhaust needs to exit in the factory location if street car.

I agree, Post #19 explains the exhaust. The full exhaust will exit in factory location.
Side note: The pics I've posted of the downpipe dumps don't show clearly this, but they will be exiting behind the front tire in between it and the fender. No cutting the fenders on this one.

Build threads like this always impress me with the amount of talent and skill is on this forum. While it makes me jealous, it also gives me motivation to keep plugging away at my own projects!
