    Just remember to attach those horns before mounting the radiator - and reverse the direction of your top shock bolts, so they can be removed later
    Aerodynamics are for those who can't build engines - Enzo Ferrari

    I can't decide which is my least favorite part of the build so far. Either mounting the horns in that small space between the shocks or drilling all the holes for for the floor panels.
    Thanks,

    For me neither, my son took care of it!! LOL... Thank god he's such an amazing help!

    Mind you I still haven't told him that I want a train steam whistle on this car (for those real *&^^holes), just haven't figured out how to get it done.

    Just going through different pictures and to think I started with a donor engine from a 2013 F150 which was "seasoned" to what we have now is quite amazing.

    Again travelling for business and my son once again stepped up to the plate and got a bunch of wiring done as well as the headers and the bulk of the muffler system setup. B&C is now starting to look like something real!! Will be furthering wiring and other miscellaneous items to completion to keep this moving if our goal to have the engine running come the first couple weeks of March is to be achieved.

    As well FFR came through with the replacement drive shaft, received it yesterday, the original was an inch long and would have fit. Sent them a bunch of photos and they came through once again! Thanks Tony and David at FFR!!!!
