Looking mighty good.
I do have one question. In the first photo I notice that the driveshaft yokes appear to be out of phase by ~180 degrees. Is there a reason for this?

I'm not following the question? Do you mean at the reverse gear box?

Take a driveshaft sitting on the floor with no u-joints in it. It has a yoke on each end. The 2 yokes should be in line with each other.

I understand, but this is how the production model was made by Aero cycle cars.

REAR WHEEL WELL, STEERING COLUMN AND DASH SUPPORT FRAMED IN.

After finishing the drive train, I moved on to the rear wheel well area, followed by the steering column and dash support framework.The cowl will be removable for easy access. Next I will be moving forward with the peddle assembly. But I need to make a modification to the throttle body linkage first.
