That's right my dizzy is here and quite pretty in all its computer controlled goodness.
My amazing engine dude decided to mock up the engine to ensure piston clearance before doing the final assembly This is a lot of work but well worth it to ensure everything clears. This was necessary because Man-a-Fre and by extension Ross Racing Pistons were both all but useless when confirming specs. Instead of 17K in the hole, we were sitting at 21K out of the whole. Not good! Here's hoping no additional machining will be necessary to make it all work.

The Tub & Body Panels Made it Home It has been a long time coming, but the tub and most of the panels are home! I'm still waiting on the tailgate and doors to be completed, and I might do late-style doors instead of my early-style ones. This is because the vent windows won't be usable with the cage and the window frames are pretty bad. We'll see. I had to bolt something on, so I installed the fuel filler and cap. LOTS more to come!
Progress Continues Both bedsides are replaced and the rear sill is next. I also picked up a small batch of powder coated parts and got to visit with "Vulcan" the Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff). He looks and barks like a fierce beast, but he is a total sweetheart. Next up for the 40? Refitting the springs on the chassis, the rear sill and sill cover, LOTS of unneeded hole patching in the floor pans, and patching the passenger side outer sill.
