  • Played with the left side header quite a bit yesterday, it's about done, except for the VHT white paint. here it is before I added the collector flange, and brazed the tubes to the upper flange. I need to get some more pics...will do that today, after I get the doors and trunk and stuff primed on the inside.

      • The wheels/tires are just rollers. I haven't come up with the final decision (or cash) for what will be on it when it's done. Bias ply....that's for sure.

                Much prettier than my headers. Nice work there.

                  Not whitewalls, probably some of these. Click image for larger version

                  • I got the header painted and installed. It looks like I hoped it would.

                    I also did some sanding and painting, of the rest of the parts that need to be "red" inside the car. I plan on hanging the doors and the deck lid in the next day or two, although it will take some help. I get to install weatherstrip, which is always fun. And I get to finish the steering column and some other stuff on the dashboard.

                        • Out of curiosity, why moving on to doors, trunk and stuff when the passenger header still needs to be built? Waiting on parts?

                                I know exactly what you mean. It all has to get done and it is nice to plug some of the larger holes. The car looks incredible Jim. I look forward to all your updates.
