That goes back to about 1976. I was putting a rock crusher 4 speed into my 350 powered 1973 Opel GT. The transmission slipped & cut a tendon at the 1st knuckle of my Thumb. In surgery to reatach it, they put a wire in just above my nail to hold the tendon in place while it healed. The nail has had a split in it ever since.

A bit of an update from the last week or so.....

We had to move into the interior. Troy wanted to add a Boost gage to the dash board. We had to relocate the 3 buttons that were where we mounted the extra gage. They were relocated to a vertical line to the left of the gage panel. We also added another buton for his "Show Lights" including the sill plate lights.

We also changed the stereo head unit, the the XM antenna had to be changed & relocated. The GPS was changed. We added a "Start" button in the center of the dash above the Vents. Troy wanted to reangle the face of the gage panel to point it up a little to make them easier to see while driving.

When the interior was upholstered thay had left some wires disconnected & a few other things had to be done.

To get this done & make everything work right is taking some time but so far so good.







A wiring nightmare?









Added a gage, it would be the top left in this picture



When we had originally done the dash, there was a little valley on top between the 2 center vents. When they did the upholstery, they tweeked it a bit to bridge that valley. On the underside of the dash, our valley part was still there. That was where the "Start" button had to be located. so we had to drill out & open up access to that area, so we could mount & wire the button.











By now we were really wanting to get it back on the floor.......



Getting the dash put together far enough to begin testing to make sure things work.





Finally we move it to the lift to get the driving lights moved a little forward to poke thru the new grill. Also mounting the camera.







mounting the radiator for the intercooler & designing an additional scoop up under the nose.





More updates soon.

Thank you very much
I really apreciate it
My project is exactly 7", I though about briging it down a little more.
I realy like how Troys car looks from the side
I am sure that the spoiler you build for the rear bumper helps give it the "look"
Keep up the good work.

Troy
your project is turning out great
I am looking forward to your updates after you get the car back

Right now the car is really ruff.

Wow, I just typed up a big update & then lost it all........it was a good post too.....

I'll try again....

Attached to the frame we had made up under the nose of the car we used to have 2 Grade 8 bolts to protect the nose from scrapes. They worked great.... however, Troy wanted wanted something that wasn't so noisey when they touched. So Troy bought some rollers for the nose. They had very nice heavy hardware& we figures out how to mount them solidly.







We found a suitable Power Steering fluid cooler & found a place to mount it.....







Troy & I agreed that we could make the cooling system better if we added an additional scoop up under the nose to scoop in a little more air. It's mounted directly under the Heat Exchanger.











We took the fuel tank out to install the larger fuel pump. while it was out we installed the new fuel lines & Filter. We also made some 3/4" alum. coolant tubes to take the coolant from the Intercooler to the heat exchanger.







While installing all these coolers & parts, the big thing people don't think about are connecting everything like the P.S. cooler & heat exchanger.

I get good reception unless I'm in a tunnel or going around a mountain. Sometimes my signal is blocked when passing big rigs since the chopper sits really low to the ground.

The fins I've seen are on BMW and other high end cars and yeah, the ricers have them too.

I had one of these antennas for an XM radio and couldn't get it to stay put on the roof like that since it is magnetic. Did you glue it in place? The best place for reception that I could find was on top of the radiator and it was hidden that way as well.

For me that may not be an option due to equipment that is mounted in the grill that is made to jam aerial and forward signals , but man I do love that idea. The fiberglass of the nose doesn't interfere with the signal the same way as the front glass? Jeff your killing me I thought I was done with this already .



I think the problem with the dash is the metal roof can block some of the signal not so much the glass. From what I could tell glass, fiberglass and plastics didn't degrade the signal much if any. I tried all kinds of locations and the sheet metal piece on top of the radiator just happened to be the best one I found. I never really thought about the heat but it never appeared to affect it any. The brake booster worked well also. I had always thought that one could unmount their fender and hide such an antenna under there but I won't mention that such that you can get your project finished

Shhhhhhhhh............

As soon as I pulled the cover I thought that if there was some chroming going on in there, we'd be trying to find a clear cover to put on there.

The oil tank & the oil tank vent are in.

However the SC top cover is out for Chrome & can't put on the coil covers until it comes back.

A bit of an update......

Monday & today it was all about finishing up all the connections & mounting for the reservoir & the circulation pump for the Intercooler & bleeding it.

We also mounted the reservoir for the Power Steering & bled it.

The week before last we sent out the S.C. cover for Chrome, Troy says that we should have it back by the end of next week. But for now we have the S.C. cover from the other LS SuperCharged engine we are installing on this engine.

In a couple of these pics. we have the rear coil cover on the engine to see what it looks like, it will look a lot better when the chrome cover comes back.

Right now the engine runs but it idles up & down because the programming for the S.C. is not in the ECM yet. The S.C. has larger injectors & a higher capacity Fuel pump. Right now we are still running the original LS7 programming so we are rich & when it gets into closed loop the ECM is pulling 25% of the fuel out.

As soon as we can get an appointment for a Dyno tune, we're going to be ready for some real test driving.

Troy also got another Chrome dual battery mounting & a F.R. battery switch, we finalized the installation of this today too.

Our top plate that we are making & the end plate that covers the "butt" of the blower are also out to Chuck for some custom machining. Then those parts will also go to chrome.

We still have some decorating to do but mechanically all appears to be about ready.





Yes, there will be matching batteries when Troy's done.





Play no attention to the Black SC cover













We also hooked up the Audi light as running lights

As usual this build is sweet! Gotta love those Audi and NSX headlamps.

This may have been mentioned in an earlier post, but how much room is there between the studs on the hinge mount of the decklid on the passenger side and the supercharger? Looks like it could be fun to get to to re-install.
