It's a lot of work, but once done you won't have to worry about it

Got some touching up and trimming to do, gotta weld up the inner part and modify the seat mount to fit again. So far so good

You mean like the entire dash? I've seen it. Can look cool. Takes lots of fab work to fit it, and then a few years later it looks dated. If it were me, I would just put some good modern gauges in the stock dash.

I think I may have to run Fox axles though. To get the wheels in a bit more than they are , I donít want them this close to the quarter panel .

Cut it down or use a narrower rear end. Or talk to Shaun about making flares.

Iím not gonna do the Eleanor front end or flares. Iíll have the side skirts for the exhaust. And I want to use the r style front valance

Gotta drive to near Houston to get all of this stuff but I could NOT pass on this deal.

May actually end up not using the hood either so that may be for sale once I get it. Iím not quite sold on it yet.
