I started on this project in Nov of 2012 and finished assembly this weekend. I still need to do my punch list and give it a good cleaning and polishing but the sometimes hard and sometimes fun part is over. I want to thank everyone who provide guidance and advise. Registered for Myrtle Beach hope to see you all their and get more guidance.  Here are a few before and after pictures.   Mac

Well done, congrats!
I don't always downshift, but when I do it is near a Prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

Hi Mac, great job I hope you have as much fun driving it. In restoring your ignition coil did you paint the yellow portion ?

No I actually have a hand full of good OEM yellow top coils. Clean the yellow up with a little wax and grease remover and paint the body black.  I had the stamp made in a local office supply store.
