    Before you install it I'd love to see you grill on the oil pan, provided it has that classic finned one.

    One small package arrived and didnt take up any noticeable difference in the garage...







    Another one definitely will be noticeable.

    Well... two more weeks without the car, but since my buddy is daily driving it he wanted to address something that was bothering him; the throttle pedal. He spent a few minutes designing a plate that relocates the pedal to make heel-toe easier and a more comfortable position.




    Heres what he started with






    Heres the initial design. It needed one revision but this was about it






    Piece mocked up











    Final position

    Saw Kevan at the MidCity gtg last night and was happy to see the car and that he had thrown some paint on the panel

    Seriously, it looks good, and I bet it was big boost to how you feel about the project.
    It really was a good feeling. The rockers are going to be an even bigger adventure, and one I will have to tackle 100% on my own, so we'll see how it goes then. I'll probably drive the car for a little bit after Kevan gives it back

    Kevan sent me a text in the middle of the day yesterday stating he planned to stay late at work and if I wanted to come work on my car we’d have a few hours. This sounded great other than the drive across Los Angeles on a Friday afternoon. Anyways, later that night I arrived to see my car and see what we could get done.



    Step one was to plug the last pinhole and coating the area in some undercoating. I didn’t go overboard, just covered any areas that may have potential for future rust.



    Then the real fun began with the trimming and fitting of the panel over and over until it was as good as it would get.









    And then... burn it on.Kevan started the tacks to get it fitted, then I did like 100 tacks after that.





    And then!
