    thanks, we agree. It's good for children to have siblings as they grow up.

    So the engine bay is 95% done. The main things left to do are double-check all hardware is tightened, replace the serpentine belt, get the air intake fitted and get the G-braces installed (already working on the pass side). So now I can move forward with installing the driver side fender, which will unlock some other things to do, like get the rest of the body installed!

    For the heater hoses (second photo) I used an upper for a 98-2002 Camaro and a lower for a 2006 Toyota Tundra (no, really). I went to the parts store and found a heater hose that was basically two straight pieces with a 135* bend with the right hose diameter. I cut it to fit and it worked out really nicely.

    For the battery terminals (third photo) I went with some "military" style pieces that did not cost much but allowed me to make all the connections in a neat manner. I used some copper washers in between the terminals so there was some spacing.

    I also got the back seats installed which was pretty cool. I sat in them for a while just to enjoy the fact there were some seats finally installed again. I luckily had enough material from the front seats to re-do the upper back seats. The lower cushions are original. After I cleaned them they ended up looking really nice.

    Awesome work. I think I said it before but every time I get frustrated your build thread is one of about three that I visit for inspiration to keep going. Well done!
