Interior trim got put back in, waiting for new a/c control to get in so I can finish up the center console. Door panels coming off next week.

New parts for the headlight conversion just came in. Two actuators, switch, relay and 3" 16ga flat steel for the new mounting brackets.

With the lights in I can get the hood back on and clean it up a bit.

Still lots to do before it hits the street but a lot closer now.

Thanks, they sound great the couple times around the block. A couple weeks and I’ll be able to get out on the road for shake down & break in!

Well I’ve got a little issue with the after market hood and the stock chrome trim.

I found a piece of aluminum angle in my junk stash. Made a pattern of it and started to cut it up.

After filling and and refilling a couple times it was time to polish it up.

Got it glued on and it filled in the hole just fine.
