Time to move up front and begin the carbon nose install. Tree fabrication first.













With mocking up the front end I realized the carb & intake just wasn't going to clear the 4" cowl hood. I don't want a scoop, don't want a larger cowl and don't want a hole in the hood.

This was a tough decision but after some research I decided to convert the car to EFI. The throttle body is 1" shorter than the 1250 dominator and a different intake will be 1.4" shorter than the current sv565 intake. Not a cheap change half the way through the build, but I wasn't willing to alter the hood and the EFI swap will have other benefits once the car is running again.

One thing that hurt the most was the Racepak dash mount tuned out so nice and clean. But with swapping to EFI, I had to make a clean break and change the dash display as well.

The EFI system I will be using is the Holley Dominator and the 7" display.

The opening in the carbon dash will need some carbon work to close the larger racepak hole in for a clean reveal.

At this point in the build I was starting to have troubled keeping motivated staying after work hours and trying to be productive till 8 or 9 pm.

I decided it was time to take the car home and finish the rest of the fabrication there.

Front end wasn't finished mounted, but good enough to set the car on the ground, roll it outside and see how it would look.

One project I knew was coming was to build headers. To be able to do so at home I needed to buy a couple tools.



Portable band saw with table.



12" disc sander.



Working on mounting various components.
