Nice!!

Looks like a serious undertaking! You probably know this but just in case you don't make sure to check the cowl vent area for rust. Very common to get water in the interior through there.

Whats going under the hood?

I have heard about the vents, yes they will be getting checked, I am installing a 390 back in it, it is a original s-code car from the factory with a C-6 Automatic in it.

I just saw this again, I cannot take the credit for the welding of the kit, having it done, I cannot weld good enough to trust myself with the front end, as far as paint, well, we will see how that goes, it should be back in my shop in a couple of weeks, then the rest of the suspension gets mocked up along with mocking up the engine and trans to see if anything needs to be adjusted.
