Wow. I am so happy right now. Body is on permanently. Engine in temporarily, I’ll pull it out to finish and paint the firewall. Had a moment of “OH NO!”, when setting the engine, as I’d raised the center (flattened) the front crossmember an inch to lower the front, which lead to some initial interference between the crank pulley and the spring U-bolts. I had room to shove the engine back 1/4″, which let the pulley drop down behind the U-bolts, I’ll have to fill the existing engine mount holes and cut new ones in the frame pads, but there’s plenty of room for that.
Almost done enough to set behind the wheel and make Hot-Rod noises!
