    Your not kiding about it being tight! I didnt even believe the stock gt500 manifolds would fit, but they do. The steering shaft passes near the manifold in same location which I thought was pretty wild. I think there will be a longer delay on my header fab due to a very slow water jet company.

    Unfortunatly not much of the "build" has been done lately. I've gathered a few hard to find items that I was lacking such as timing cover, front accessories etc. I've been getting jerked around with the water jet guy on some header flanges and have since given up. Just placed an order with Kooks which I should have done 4 wks ago. I already have 304 stainless tubing and collectors. Here are some pics of the car.

    I made some progress tonight. Mocked up the tubing for the driver side past the steering shaft, oil cooler adapter and frame rail...whoooo! I'll need to spend a couple evenings welding up the tubes, collector, and get a better transition at the cyl head flange. At least the pass side looks like a breeze in comparison.

    Nice welds! I Tig weld, from a wheelchair, using my elbow to run the pedal, or sometimes the "finger-wheel" style control. I mostly do aluminum however. Much more of a pain in the ass to do. The car looks great. It appears to be mini-tubbed. Is it? That is on the list for my car for the winter.

    Tig welding aluminum is definatly an art, or a skill that I dont posses. Yes it is mini tubed with a four link setup and anti roll bar. I also narrowed the rear fold down seat 1". I'll post a pic of the rear end soon.

    Nice car! I am running in the same boat as you! I am building a 1967 fastback as well. I just bought a 32v navigator engine. The body is currently a shell and I'm doing my best to fund the project (who said donating plasma wasn't a good source of income, ha!).
    I can see myself running into some of the same obsticles as you. If you have any questions, shoot them off of me...maybe we can help eachother out...
    I really wanted to stick the gt500 motor in...but those buggers aren't cheap! I plan to supercharge my 5.4.
    Keep up the great work!! It is looking awesome!
