   All is done on the 66 except for the headers to be modified because it is hitting on the apron and will burn the paint if I do not change this. My son told me to cut the welds off the flange and he will add a V band to make it right.

  This is the last thing to do on the 66 for the completion of this project until the next one. The exhaust system took a while to get it done right.

that's a bummer...Was it sold to a collector?  But I will bet that the "replica" will even look better then the original!  Looking forward to it.

  The motor is already done and the front beam and the trans as well. I have the Porsche Alloys 14x6 I had polish so time ago. I just need to pull the body off the pan and repair the pan half .

   I am looking to install a magneto on my motor which is a Hunt . Possibly having it polished first before I install it. And I will have the support bracket done in Blue which will go better with the color of the car .

I'm sure someone must have one in their shed somewhere down here.  I'll just need to keep my ear to the ground!
