There's plenty of room for a Paxton or Vortech supercharger right there. See it?

I got all the Indicator lights put in the dash. So, The Dash went back in tonight, The new defroster ducting worked our slick. Also the O2 Sensors showed up. The plan is to put the steering column back in tomorrow night, and finish hooking up a couple of wires I have left.
So close to firing it up, I can taste it!

Way to go Shaun. You certainly have put in some tough hours in fab/repair. It looks really good. Kudos on your patience!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

All Wiring is done, and tested Good!
Steering column is back in and steering shaft re attached. This weekend I hope to get the down pipes fitted and welded up, Then install the O2 Sensors. I Even cranked it over a couple times to get some oil flowing and primed. Note- Still need fuel!

It's YOUR fault... you and your fat fingers! I turned it up because I couldn't hear it. I was thinking 'Wow, that has such a nice, mellow rumble'. Then, KABLAMMM!! It got so loud. I was scrambling to turn it down, falling all over myself! The only BAD thing about your video is that you hit the gas just once, after moving yout FAT FINGERS, before you ended the video! I want more of this beautiful, sexy babe...

Forgot the smiley!!

I still need to fabricate some kind of exhaust.
It was running rich without the O2 sensors.
