    Yody,

    Nice work! Are those 12" or 13" rotors on the front?

    I think what Vince is referring to is routing the heater hoses forward first, then looping them rearward along the fenderwell. There's a picture on my website under the MarkVIII fan installation that shows the forward routing. It makes service work much easier.

    Hell yes!! That car is super clean. You should be very proud of it.

    I feel like a wuss now, because I ***** about running out of space at the shop, and most of you guys are working in a 1 car garage with no lift. Great job thus far.

    Thanks everyone! Carl, i didnt want to run the heater hoses along the inner fender because i think it looks funny, the only problem will be taking off the valve cover, but i can just be carefull, i think it looks better this way. keep them coming! Tyler my friend has an even smaller garage than me, he can't even open the doors!!! also those are 13" C5 brakes on the front, but the 19" rims make them look small!!!!

    baddass

    yes bad ass in deed.I can't wait to see that thing going through the corkscrew.
    On the heater hoses, Its preferred to support the hoses as close as possible to the core. The hoses get heavy when filled with water. As the engine shakes and the body shifts you'll soon develope a week spot at the core.In your case maybe exasterbated by the weight of heavy braided hose also they appear to have tension on them. Even if slight you may end up with problems. Carls got the right idea, run up along the well and turn back to the block.It might look good if routed along the front of the head. Don't take it wrong... just an idea.

    okay makes sense now that you mention the weight of the water, on the other hand the braided line is also more sturdy? the top (longer) line from the core is supported by the heater box, and the bottom line(very short) is really short and is supported by the firewall, but i do see your point, the lines are so expensive i will just have to try this, if its a prob i will change it later. I really appreciate all the good feedback! That is half of the fun of building the car for me. The other half is driving it!!
