As soon as I got the car running, I dropped it to remodel the kitchen

This is my life... Not much else to say, sorry!
I'll get back to the car as soon as I have a working kitchen again!

Close to start up day

I am getting ever so close to starting this thing that I postponed tearing into the kitchen remodel for a week. It is possible that I get this car started for the first time tomorrow. I have been plugging away at the last little details as the excitement and nervousness build. Yes, nervous! No matter what I do or don't know, it scares the crap out of me to start it the first time!! What if I missed something???
There are so many parts and I have meddled it's every last one of them!!
All that said, I did not forget to put oil in it!!

Bit by bit and going backwards

I have been plugging away at the intake plenum when I found time this week. Over the weekend I went back to wiring, yep, sick of fiberglass work!!
I installed the tweeters in my dash and finished tidying up the wiring in the drivers footwell. Still more to do on the other side...
I installed my amp up under the dash and took it all back out today to install it under the rear package shelf
