The only body panel left to paint is the hood. Got the carburetor back from Ken @ Everyday Performance last week. I need to get it running and install the front clip ASAP.

Still working on it, I promise. Just slow going, the heat down here is brutal this time of year.

Got it running last week, one more thing off the check list. However, the Pypes lead pipe on the passenger side isn't sealing up. It looks like the flare of the pipe is too big. Not 100% sure how to fix that.

Currently hunting down an AC compressor and trying to figure out the brackets.
