Looks great, Ruben! Hope you have a blast!

Like terlingua11 said, I'd also like to hear it run!

Fantastic looking car! I like this idea a lot.
The car I purchased came with many R model items and maybe this is what should be done with them

...that one hose connected to the reservoir is huge!
Mine uses a combination of 3/4" pressure and 1" scavenge.

That color looks darker than "Guardsman Blue" but looks lighter than "Nightmist Blue". It looks amazing but what color is it? Were you trying to duplicate an original color?

It's Guardsman Blue.  The lighting in the pictures (I'm not sure which one you're referencing) might be playing tricks.

Thanks!

Looks a lot like Ford Vista Blue with the purple tint to me.
