Thanks guys!

VEW I am looking into that first gen Camaro tank setup, Ebay has some on there and I like the rear fill idea where I can pull in on any side of the gas station and reach the fill neck smile

I got the steering column custom fitted and routed the rod past the headers, Then went on to the brake setup, The truck came with the parts for this but it was an under cab frame setup and I didn't want that so I spent a few hours cutting fabricating and welding and made it a firewall power brake set up and then to top it off with a picture I put in my truck warming gift from a friend at work... My kick **** shrunken head smile

Today I finished up getting things assembled and in place, no paint work or cleaning yet that will come later but the steering is in and complete, the shifter is in and complete, the seats from my old van are in and mounted (tight fit but comfy) I have the floor panels in but not permanently, driveshaft shortening is complete and the placement of the master cylinder assembly and brake pedal are complete, So at this point to drive it with no unforeseen crap popping up.... plumb the brake system with all new lines and bleed it, plumb the transmission cooling lines, Install wiring harness, Install whatever fuel cell I may use, So at this point I have a little to go but not what I faced Sunday morning, I told Wendy to come down and sit in it and she loved the seats then I said ok stay there hold on, I went out to the motor and hooked it up then fired it up and she smiled, I revved it 4 times and her eyes got big then I jumped in it to and we sat in it running and man this thing is loud and mean, She said again "wow This things a beast and it is going to be fun to run the rod shows with"

After pushing hard on my past 5 days off I finally drove it in the cul-de-sac Monday, no wiring in it yet so no brake lights or key switch to kill it if there was a problem, so I didn't take it any further than that, It has a small brake line leak from the master to the proportioning valve so I need a new line there but it feels pretty spunky when you tap the gas pedal smile So now for the wiring job and then a scotch brite pad washing and no frills black paint job over the red primer then tag it and do a shake down run.
