    That is a beautiful car Everett. I think the hood tach wants to still live on your hood though. :)

    I agree with keeping the hood tach but if it needs a new home I know a place for it

    Since that picture was made: I have added dbl faced alum. insulation on top of the Fatmat. I was getting more heat in the front floor/firewall. I got the insulation from Menard's and it made a difference -- drop temp in floor pan area 10- 15 deg.

    Thats pretty nice, i didnt really think about the heat coming through. I have some sheets of 3/16 inch thick aluminum stock sitting against my shed. And i was thinking about fabricating some more or less skidplates to go under the floorpans since my floors are wearing pretty thin. Figured it would help keep the floors from falling all the way through
    They arent that bad, but i do have a baseball size hole in my passenger floorboard that i need to really properly patch up. Been looking at donor cars at the local scrapyard. found one with some decent floors in it and the front bumper i want
