I have a meeting tommarra with local police detective to get the VIN authenticated. The guy I bought it from had to use a title search company. They got tags and clear title. We then got it in my name here. Title comes in mail and it is missing a digit. Great! Long story short. I gotta get it verified that it ain't stolen. I'm not worried, I did a VIN search on line and it clear and never been on a total lose list.

So before loading it on a trailer tonight, I spent a few hours and made the dash back panel, drilled it on, tapped the holes and then dimple so holes in it for effect. Lol. Steam punk! Lol.

Update: Title issues resolved!!!! Did the inspection at local police station with auto theft detective. Great guy! Did his VIN number inspection and ran it on their nation wide stolen car net. No issues. So he filled out the correct forms and sent me on my way. Yeeehawww!

The build goes on. Lol.

Slow week. Decided to cook a brisket. Lol. It was really good by the way.

I took the dash pod panels by the platers that I used to use when I had a job and got the girl to run them through for me same day turn. Black anodize. I jitterbugged them with 220 so I would have a flat look. Got that all assembled, popped the gauges in it just to see what it was going to look like. Think it looks cool!

Did my final brake assy mounts. Built some 3/4 x 3/4 L angle stiffeners for opposite side of fire wall. Welded nuts to the angle for installation ease.

One pic of smoker smoke at 2am. Lol. Moses saw a burning bush, I see a smoking yaupon. Lol.

Thanks. I have seen a lot of modified cars, roll cages, gutted interiors and such but almost nobody cuts the whole damn dash out down to the fire wall and re works from there. I think many will enjoy the wow factor. Lol. I will.

I am fabricating a support now for the lower front windshield. Tie it into the firewall from the cross bar I'm adding.

Ok, lower windshield is now stout! Lol.

Gutted the doors. No more windows. Shaved about 75 lbs. Off. Repaired the cracks around the door latch screw area. Welded and then made and installed a doubler.

Got my inner aluminum door panels fit and installed. Re-pops of the 1965-66 350GT R.

Started the closeouts to cover over the gigantic gaps left by removing the side glass.

Also got the cowl closeout panel built and installed. Cut out all the grates to access down inside the cowl to clean out 55 years of crap and clean up the rust and paint.

Thinking of fabricating an old school IMSA style air dam of yester year. Sketch.

Cut open cowl to access all the 55 years if grunge and rust. Started out and layed out where I was going to cover the opening with a closeout panel. Fabricated the panel, layered out my fastener pattern. Drilled the panel and then drilled it to cowl. Drilled up the holes and added threaded inserts.

After all that I cut out all the ribs except the two main ribs. Then sucked out all the crap, sanded and painted all the cowl insides. Then attached cowl closeout. Just that took 4 damn hours!
