    I bought a Flex-a-lite 56482 series, and it has a built in AC relay and fan controller. Id have to go back to the inputs on the controller, but pretty sure it has a few spots for AC. Also has the manual override switch.

    originally had disks on front, but manual booster. I tried this corvette booster, but Im not liking the feel of the pedal. Not sure if I need to get a adjustable proportioning valve, or if I need to bleed again. Once car is fully mobile, I may have to revisit this.

    I went directly to dakota digital, they are handling. Didnt even call Summit on it. DD said they source them from OER.

    parts slowly trickling in. I ordered the March bracket, and idler pulley to add vintage air setup. And compressor. Amazing how small this thing is. I don't really care for the polished look, the one I saw online wasn't polished.

    received new dash from NPD, this time not cracked. And replacement bezel from Dakota Digital. Both look good.

    Had some delays dealing with Texas Freeze-apocalypse , had some time to get back to car Sunday. Finally getting fenders on for final fitment.

    Trying to get these gaps closed up, not having much luck on the passenger side, drivers side is bearable.

    I like the last two pics of your car just the way it is, tires and everything. Kinda like a bootlegger's car. Looks pissed off.

    thanks! I like the look too and have considered leaving it in epoxy primer, but i hear the primer doesnt hold up to blistering sun down here.
