    WOW!
    Looks like you poured a clear epoxy over everything. Looks like a show car!

    Have you had a hydroboost before on anything you owned?

    I'm curious about your clutch master cylinder mounting. Is that a kit or did you decide to mount it very low? I see you don't have much space where it would mount horizontal, looks like your link lock is there. How's the geometry work for this? It might be the angle of the picture, but it seems that when the clutch pedal is depressed, the rod is going to swing in a wide arc that wouldn't be aligned with the master cylinder anymore. Wouldn't that cause the cylinder to wear quickly?

    Something's been bugging me- image 2 post 1081- is the line with the regulator the feed or return? Is the regulator an Aeromotive 13129 type?

    My brother had a similar setup with a similar regulator plumbed roughly the same way it looks you plumbed yours. It turns out that he had incorrectly plumbed the regulator, he had assumed the bottom of the regulator was the feed, and the side ports the outlets, as many other regulators. When plumbed with the bottom inlet, the regulator did not work correctly.

    If I am mis-understanding how you plumbed the regulator, I apologize.

    I double checked my plumbing diagrams from a few years ago and also confirmed how I have it on the car and it is correct the regulator is connected to the return line and plumbed hell the Aeromotive manual suggest.
    Even though I had it correct itís always nice to double check things!
    Thank you!

    Good- it was impossible to tell from that image what the actual condition was. Figured it was better that I raise a potential flag, glad to see I was wrong.

    Brother had it plumbed opposite- Regulator was on the feed side, caused him to struggle for a couple weeks.

    Again, i love the build

    The plumbing looks gorgeous.
    Maybe you already answered that somewhere but did you paint the underdash a lighter color to make it easier to work on the car once everything is reassembled?
    Everything can be fixed with a big hammer.

    originally Mopar never painted under the dash so it was raw steel so I wanted to replicate that look and at the same time keep it light so it wouldnít be so dark under the dash when you have to work on it.
    thanks

    Brilliant thinking.

    Where did you have the chrome work done, and if you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost (and for what pieces).
    Just spectacular!

    itís a small change that enhances the appearance without drastically changing the look of the car
    Thanks!

    Who helped install the bumper? Do you have a method to do that by yourself?
