Really nice! Are doors and trunk next?

Frame & hinges done, next is the latch system. I've already installed a hoop and latch brackets under the cowl

Paul, looks good. The hood support rod looks rather long. Is that a temporary rod or just the angle of the pic that makes it look too long?

Sam,
The rod is long, will cut off once everything is done. It's also an optical illusion

Up to my ears in wiring.

1) Moved the Fusepanel to the passenger footbox

2) ECU mounted in same area

3) Concentrated on dash connections so I can remove dash and just 'unplug'. Who would have ever thought there are 39 connections to the dash

Holy cow Paul. Glad you're figuring all that wiring out. Wiring is not one of my talents. I like the idea if being able to unplug the dash if needed. Next installment?

Most of you know of my hangup on being period correct. Pulled together my firewall pieces and wiring

Let's see, 1965 427 Cobra's had an idle air control, didn't they? (that's the little filter element you see in the background)

Getting Closer to finishing wiring. Footbox cover panel will get carpeting on it. Tunnel firewall enclosure gets vinyl dash material

Yes, I did modify the cockpit tub and replaced the tunnel with a removable aluminum one.

Interesting placement of all the modern day electronics in the passenger foot box!
As always, very nice work!

Looks Great!

I wish I would have mounted my electronics the way you did - then I would have the room for this -

without needing to move anything.

Have you looked into these EPAS units? They sell them new too but the price to go used is about 10th of new.

I didn't mind the manual steering at first but I guess I'm getting old...
