Ripper, Groover and John thank you!
I have parts scattered everywhere and it’s nice to finally see them come together.

Decided on fiberglass full pin-on hood and trunk lid as well as glass bumpers and brackets from http://UP22.com -good, bad or ugly! :lol:
The car is going to be only for the road course track so I can’t justify paying premium cash for nicer parts. My buddy the body guy is fairly confident he can make any turd ‘glass part look decent so I ain’t scared! :lol:

If I can get the engine started by end of year I will be one happy dude!! :D

Thanks man! Not sure with what organization I’ll be tracking it so I don’t know about the rules on fiberglass. I do know I have no intention on being competitive. More like a weekend track day car. There’s a big Cobra owners club out here that rents out Willow Springs 2 to 3 times a year. Lots of Cobras Mustangs Shelby’s and some Falcons and Comets too. Those guys aren’t slow but it’s a relaxed environment. In fact tomorrow is their last meet of the year.
That’s the plan. Some year. :lol:

The Falcons low tech heads-up display. Decided on Autometer traditional style gauges.
I’d like to keep the aux gauges high so I could actually see them.

They’re at the center of the dash. Try clicking on the pic - I think it got cropped somehow.
