    Thanks, I have no complaints with this one, the fit is very nice.
    Nothing about this car will be stock before too long.

    wow from the far away shot I thought I saw lines all the way around the grill middle. I have the anvil front end too. I am putting it on in a couple weeks. Can I get a set of shots around that piece? inside the cowl too? for instance. the bolts for connecting things, did they use large washers for extra protection? Did they put extra fiberglass on the inside nose to beef it up? Very curious on this setup now.
    Who ever built this car spent serious money. those Anvil pieces are pricey and hard to get. and they matching panels perfectly. Loving this car.

    Nice looking car, I couldn't go for the LS, a 1970-spec LT-1 would be AWESOME, but aftermarket heads and a stroker kit (maybe a 396 SBC) would add some stealth and you'd need fewer adaptors, specialized mounts, etc. One cool thing about the earlier SBC, many configurations generate more torque than horsepower, and that's what gets the job done.

    Yup, those will be history when I do the swap. Prob run the same setup from the other car, Jones mufflers but this time, 3" in and 2.5" out. Seen a few built like that and the sound is great.
    Building a cruiser this time.

    A few pics of the front, things line up pretty good. They used washers in places but I like your idea of using larger washers.
