Looks great.... and as others say keep it fun
and little progress is still progress

I emailed my admin on Monday and said I was
going to spend the day with my wife since she
was out of town for a long weekend... I got an email
back stating it was nice I was taking a day off to spend
with her.... My admin was actually telling me all the other times
it was to work on my cars

Keeping it fun is the key! Not putting a deadline on things has helped for sure and I finally understand why so many people build car after car. More people need to do this. It's a positive on so many levels.

Wish I had that level of understanding with my employer. Sounds like you have some good leadership.

Installed the headers and some of the accessorizes yesterday. So far I am pleased with the way things are turning out. I went with the Art Morrison ceramic coated headers and really like the way they fit. My last 67 drug over the smallest of speed bumps. Soooo annoying! The exhaust should tuck up nice and tight.

Now....if I could only find the AC bracket.

Curtis, for a moment there I thought you were getting a Divorce from that car of yours after an earlier post, something about 'the b*#ch is pissing me off'.
Nice to see you're back on track, heck that car of yours is starting to look too nice to drive. :o
Just kidding.......keep up the good work!

The headers look great on there. We have pot holes where we loose Mini Coopers in around here so we need them to be nice and tight like those. Looking good.
Is that a GM front drive kit or is it Holley? If it's Holley could you measure from the bolt at the top of the Alt to the bolt in the head behind the power steering reservoir? I need more room between my Alt and valve cover. Thanks

Thanks. According to Craig AME bolted a plywood to the bottom of the frame when designing them to insure they fit nice and tight. Hopefully I can keep it all tucked up above the bottom of the frame.

Heck no! Just to much on my plate. Sold the house, moved, over worked, etc. Just to busy. Things are moving along for now. I'll have to stop at some point and save up some $$ to finish it, but that's alright.

Seems like good use of a Mini Cooper to me. It's the GM Vette setup. I would like to get one of those Gucci kits at some point.

Small update from last weekend. Few more items installed.

I looked all over my garage for the Kwik Performance AC bracket thinking it was here. Turns out it was right where I left it...at Jeffs shop...right next to the car.





Installed the Hydratech and Wilwood master.



Painted the lines and installed a few of the AC parts. May have to go back in and black out anything shiny.



Nice to see the front end coming down finally.



Thanks for looking.
