Got the engine wired, plumbed & installed. Radiator today. My BMF has arrived, so there is progress on the body front as well.

Curt, the tyres were a PITA, the rears especially. They looked like a 1:1 tyre with tread seperation. Much sanding to get then acceptable.

Well then, you did an exceptional job getting them to where they are now.

The engine is going to look fantastic in the bay.

Body on the chassis, I've got some ride height issues to contend with, but its moving along.
Need more paint, so it can wait for the weekend. Fighting with the headers & side pipes ATM.
