Yes, quite a neat job. It takes up a lot less space, too. Good job! (Even if you did hate it!)

Another "I hate wiring," picture. All the electronics except the starter solenoid and voltage regulator are mounted in a pelican case. Ive spent so many hours on the wiring that it feels like a blur. I can finally say I am almost done with the wiring.

Made a box to cover the pedal assembly/master cylinders and mounted the reservoirs to it.

Life has kept me pretty busy. My daughter was born about a year and a half ago and has kept the wife and I occupied. I have just started to get back to working on the car. Pretty much finalized the front fender brackets this past weekend. Should be starting to work on the exterior paneling soon.

Just finished building the buck for the hood. I'll need to also eventually build a bump out to clear the distributor, carb, and air cleaner. I should be laying down fiberglass this weekend. We'll see how it turns out...

Laid three layers of fiberglass matting on the buck today. Hopefully the releasing wax works...

Not to many guys building their hoods out of FG. I do see the appeal of it though, hope it works out really well for you.
