    Update

    Firewall repainted and 2 holes drilled out for 9 way autowire plug in harnesses and wiper motor cover for when
    I don't run a wiper motor.
    Sheet metal mocked up to clean garage and begin body work for paint.
    Need to reassemble everything label shims and work panels smooth then remove paint and reinstall finally.

    Car is coming along nicely!
    The clevis Alston uses are really cool parts and beefy too. I had to elongate the holes a little after welding since they fit so tight. Hopefully, they do not rattle while driving.

    Looking sharp, the carbon fibre wrap is a nice touch! Can't wait to see some more paint on this one.

    Drop off

    They are spot welded to the quarter and trunk pan.
    Since your just installing a new one grind/cut it out.

    Progress on the motor has been a struggle waiting on parts and finding issues with parts I already have.
    Both heads needed to be welded beneath seats after pressure test did not have good outcome.
    Hopefully once they are finished things will wrap up quickly.
