Located a Holley Systemax off Ebay. Headed off for some port work, then cleaning/coating for bling.




Finished hanging the rear Cobra brakes. 11.65 rear vented rotors, getting the squeeze from Cobra-specific calipers.

Got the updated front door speakers, and the rest of the stereo hooked up. Sound is AMAZING ! Thanks again to Kicker for their support, and well engineered complete system.

Dash tweeters




Front door speakers required slight metal surgery, but no other mods to fit.






The guts of the system



Sub is in and tuned.



Now, on to the custom rear seat delete, panels, and interior completion

With the difference in weight, we stuck with the lighter wood, and sealed the inside with resin. All good.

Final stages. Last years heart attack and bypass surgery set me back, but got to work on her towards the end of the year.

LED bulbs in the cluster-

Autometer Cobalt gauges-


Kicker bass control knob, and AEM wideband

Took some ingenuity and crafting, but fit the boost gauge where normally the stock GT foglight switch goes. Fabricated a spare piece of interior trim, and cut the hole.

All in. Aside from the shift light, everything looks in line of sight, along a similar plane. I didn't want it too look like gauges stuck anywhere.

Contour dual fan shroud. Clips removed, sanded and painted.

A/C condenser fitted. Not pictured, but have a small Spal pusher fan going on the front, wired to come on with the A/C.

Almost a year since last post. Car project has been on the side and back burner.

Engine/Trans went in & out a few times, due to fitment issues of oil pan to
K member, headers to steering shaft and clutch fork, etc. After swapping pan, headers rack bushings, and going with a hydraulic set up.. It's in.



Vortech T Trim head unit is back off, and being polished.




83lb injectors, rails etc.

More fuel supply work. Ended up moving the regulator, due to interference with A/C dryer.


Rear brakes run with SS and hard lines.
