Thanks for tips leprechaun, will make sure I get those put in. 


Got rims and air cleaner back from powdercoat.  Got some new Toyo's mounted.  Got the seats off to the upholstery guy and last parts to the chrome plater.  Should have that stuff back near the end of the month.  Can't wait to install.  Credit Card is runnig on fumes right now, but I'm so close to the finish.

Oh, wow, amazing work! That dash!!! I had a similar idea for mine, but wasn't sure how i would look. You've made my mind for me. I'm going to try to do the same. How robust is it?

Only thing i would have done differently, is use a Honda battery, and relocate it to the trunk. I switched to a tiny Honda battery (Group Size 51) and it still cranks over fine, but takes up less room in the engine bay.

Any updates?

I am down in MidCity San Diego, I would love to check out your progress.

Maybe you can help me out too.

I have a 1970 1600 Cali (Emissions)

I am trying to decide if I keep the emissions system or remove it completely.

I see your roadster is a Cali car too.

Any feedback greatly appreciated.


Great job by the way.

Can you please explain what condition your fuel tank was in, and how you did you improved it?
