These are some changes we made for 07. Tell me what you think and suggestions. All the aluminum replaced areas that were rusted out or spots I wanted to clean up the look. Inside we made a console to make the gauges more visible and added a fuel press. and nos press. gage. I also added a ARC flat touch switch panel with a relay center and a CD player for when we go for a cruise. We also moved the battery to the trunk and put in a cutoff switch. Some cal-tracs single leafs and Moroso trick springs were also added for the 2007 year. Still working on getting the motor back together the machine shop I work with is backed up might have to get with Hanz and see if he can fit me in for some machine work.

Agree completely; a very nice piece of work.

Are you going to block off behind the grill so that the radiator draws from the bottom of the car? And will you be clocking the gauges so that normal is at 12:00 clock when running? Or are you going to leave 'em the way they were originally installed?

Reason being air going around a car is more aerodynamic than going through it. And you generally don't have time to look at a gauge and "read it", when all you need to know is it standing up or not.

I used to have the gauges clocked so I will probally do these to not sure though. I will see when we start making passes again. For the air flow do you think it would be alright when driving on the street?

Here is a pic of the console and battery cutoff installed the pics aren't that good.

A blocked grill works on the street so long as you have an air dam on the nose to direct air into the cavity in front of the radiator. A front spoiler really helps with aerodynamics also.
