Here's a sneak peak of the engine and hood scoop.  The scoop is 33% larger; which is needed for correct engine fitment.

  How many cubic inches in the engine?

The engine is an all aluminum Dart small block that is stroked to 438 (I call it a 427  ;D).

I can't wait to hear it run for the first time!

Things are moving along!  The new hood (with a 33.3% increase in the opening) is now prepped and primed.  ;D

Yes, there was A LOT of mud put on that thing!

And, the gauges have arrived! 

Again, not exact, given it's a restomod  ;)

The package tray and accompanying interior panels are now roughed in. A LOT of work had to go into fitting everything, especially due to the minitubs and the full roll cage. Now, it needs to be semi dissasebled and painted.

Thanks Jesse B! Youíre a miricle worker. 👍🏻

The gauges are coming along well!  Here, you can see the main gauge bezel, as well as two separate gauges that will be located in the glove box.
