Thanks, I have now got all of my lights working.
Tomorrow, I paint my scoops and rockers and I`m done for a while.
I`m just going to enjoy driving my car.

It looks fabulous! Are you happy with how it has turned out?

I like the looks of the tapers.

Thanks guys.
Yes, Nolan I really like how it has turned out.
I just wished the front matched the paint a little better.
Actually, the paint I ordered to do the rockers and scoops with matched better than the nose and I gave both companies the paint code.
I may just have the rest of the car painted to match the nose a little later.
I had just a tiny bit of overspray but once I got the hang of the Preval sprayer it worked pretty good.
Not as good as my HVLP gun but not bad.
I think the only other thing I will do is attach ABS to the bracing bars to channel air directly into the radiator and also to hide being able to see through the mesh to under the car.

Rob, I don`t have that car anymore.
I have an 88 coupe that is a SLOW project.
I have a 4.9 with a Getrag for it but haven`t started the swap yet.
