    you can see that i have it apart, its at the point where i dont want to go to far ahead untill i get the top chassis rails painted .after this part the chassis will be complete and i dont have to go back to it.
    this is also where all of the rear wiring is done. i also notice the fenders and rear lower section rubbed. so i had to bring each fender out 1mm.


    top rails are painted and mounted

    a really nice guy suggested to make the tranny look like an engine. he sent pictures and info
    the only thing i couldnt really do is get a true scale of what i need.also with all the accessories on the engine i coulnt really get a clear view.
    so i went with what i can see and guest work. a thanks to the guys for the info and pictures. hopefully everybody like what i did
    i had another set of tranny covers. added some heads, valve covers, screws,intake mantifold and some paint.
    theres a front plate that goes on the front of the engine. if i can get picture of this area, i can probably come up with something

    this box is done. :D


    ive put the screws on the rear (not rivets). theres a plate where the 500 stay back decals goes.
    also my turbo charger came in and fits perfect.
    the lights are going to look awesome on this.
