    Really like how it turned out, where did you get the weatherstrip?
    Like your door handles also, where did you get them?

    I like your wheel and tire selection. Could you share the exact selections?

    Hey Plimpton I searched for a long time for wheels and tires, saved the ones I liked in my favorites and after saving the same ones several times that made the choise. They are Mickey Thompson Street Comp 245-45R17 and 315-35R17. Rims are American Racing AR105M 17x8--4.5 back space and AR105M 17 x 10.5 with 6.875 back spacing. The problem was the rears did not have enough back spacing, tire was way to close to the inner fender well, so I added a .875 wheel spacer to move them out. But in order to do that I had to go with longer wheel studs, which ment pulling the axles. I plan on running full fenders and I should move the rears out a little more to "fill" the fender opening but are reluctant to add more wheel spacer. At the present time I have 5" ride heigth rear and 4.75 in the front.

    While I am at it here is a quick update on the build. I have trimed and fit the rear cockpit cover, thats a real joy. To located where the roll bar passes through I took a laser pointer and suspended it over the center of the tube that accepts the roll bar, then with out moving the pointer reinstalled the cover and marked the point, repeated for the other side. i think it worked out well. Roll bar needed some work to get it to fit down far enough. All back out to do the covering for the cockpit cover.
    Next was fitting the front portion of the engine side cover and front fender (did the vinyl cover on the side cover). Installed the front side cover, installed the head light though the side cover into the bracket beside the radiator then tried to put the fender on, it doesn't fit, head light is in the way. Looks like if you are running full fenders the headlights should be mounted on the fender, not through the side cover, unless I am missing something.

    I am in the upper hole, looks like if it was about an inch higher it would be fine.

    Solved the head light fit. I was in the top hole in the bracket Nov2018x2 002.JPG, but that set the head light on the fender. Made an extention for the bracket Nov2018x2 004.JPG, that moved the head light up 2". Now all fits, one of those things that you do that no one will ever know.Nov2018x2 007.JPGNov2018x2 009.JPG

    Couple of questions, I would like to mount the switches for the power windows on each door but the bezel that comes with the switches is to mount them side by side not individually, does anybody know where you can get individual bezels that would fit the supplied swithes?? Other option would be to mount them together on a console with the supplied bezel, is there a "universal" console that a company has that would fit the 33 or are they all "custom" made?? I don't like the idea of mounting them under the dash.

    You are correct, I would not be able to open the PS, good point. Console might be the way to go.

    I picked up a console from Innovative Rodding a few years ago, do not know if he still does them. We just built a box out of wood for the console glove box. Mounted the Window switches on it. Then used the contact connectors in lieu of wiring through the door. I am pretty happy with the look and function. We used the panel contacts versus wire through the doors for the electrical connections.

    Duff, where did you get the trim ring for your shift boot? I need a rectangular one similar to yours.
    Nice work on the console.

    Bill,

    I thought you were going to do an LS swap, or was I dreaming?

    I went ahead and sold the LS motor I had. It has taken a year to get this far so I thought I would just leave it with the small block and LS the next one. LoL, did I post this in your thread?
