    The inside engine bay does really look great .Doesn't look like much had gone on in there in 40+ years. You doing a great job. I also like those aluminium nutsert they really work a treat .Every man should have them make any job easier. Putting S/S nutserts in are a little more troublesome.

    Just found your thread....great stuff! Impressed with your welding skills considering you're a novice. Look forward to seeing it progress.

    Thanks Tim - I was hoping to have it done this year, but I'll have the painting, headlining and reassembly to do, so likely March time
