    That is a very classic looking setup and it looks like a hot wheels car, I've showed a few friends of mine and we all agree it's killer. What did you end up doing for the front accessories?

    Thanks Casper!

    For the front accessories I went with CVF Racing. This included a pulley and bracket for both the alternator and power steering as well as a pulley for the water pump. (The Supercharger came with the lower dual V-belt pulley)

    The alternator fit too low and hit the upper control arm so we ended up making our own alternator mount.

    CVF Racing did not have a mount for the AC unless I wanted it mounted high so I will be making my own AC bracket as well.

    Have any more pics of the filler work to match the noise to the fenders? That's what I'm working on right now and I'm curious how you got yours so perfect...

    Most of the pics of that work are on page 45 of this thread.

    First we started by getting the hood perfectly aligned in between the fenders, then we got the spacing where we wanted it between the nose and the hood.

    From there we body worked the fender lines.

    Congratulations Mike, both on your absolutely gorgeous car, and your trophy. Well deserved. I have to admit, I gasped when I saw the post saying you were going to cut the hood and fit the blower and cried out "nooooooooo" because your car looked perfect, just the way it was. But, I have to agree that it is even more stunning, and badass with the blower, and hasn't lost any of its classy nature. Enjoy.
