Here is photos of firewall ,used large hammer to knock back and in to shape ,went as high and as far back as possible heater and air conditioner was limiting factor. Then coated with body filler [bondo] to finish off .
I also used a series 5 K frame with power rack and made engine mounts to suit.

Finally chopped my TII tranny 4 1/8". Hope to start fitting the engine this week so I can fabricate the oil pan and engine support/mounts.

Sorry for the slow progress, but between kids, wife, work and extra curricular activities, car projects tend to take a back seat an rightfully so. However, I like getting things done, so I'm determined to finish this project this year!! It's my Christmas present to me!

For anyone interested, I'm selling this project. I've moved to Germany and was not able to complete it, but I'd say is 90% complete for it to be a good daily driver. Search in Ebay if you're interested. I'll cut anyone a deal from the club.
