Man for a split second there I thought you had some of that fake braided stuff on the upper radiator hose. It looks really good so far. I like the carburetor setup - especially on an older car - it just fits. Great job! Clay

LOL, no it is some kind of plastic sleeve for protection I guess...took that off today.
All wiring finished except the charging wire to the battery from the alternator.
Bottom hose and T-stat in.
MSD box programed
Throttle cable and detent cable hooked up and adjusted
Still need a belt and to hook up temp probe (need adapter) fill it up with coolant...then a start-up Very Happy..........maybe next weekend ?

Where did you get the light hood springs? I assume you have a fiber glass hood?

Looks nice!

One question is the alternator circuit using the computer to PWM the regulator?

The alternator is controlled via PWM Pulse Width Modulation from the ECM. Without the ECM then there are some things to be aware of when doing this kind of swap. See this link. It is a good explanation of what I am talking about. Not sure the alternator will function correctly without some wiring changes or input to it.
