    Kudos....this is an outstanding build. I'm looking forward to how you complete the steering shaft / firewall and the brake master cylinder location modification. I shy away from the Gen III application of the early A because it requires your skills. It is not a simple unbolt the old, drill a couple of holes, and bolt in the new install. Great job!!

      Thank you. The column I have fitted all ready. I am using a drag style column to give me some extra room. The master cylinder will be moved inside using a Wilwood reverse mounted setup. This is my first build and I am learning quickly or how tight things get lol.

      Made a little bit more progress on the dart. Started building my transmission tunnel. I have never done this. I use bent rods to get a shape and height. The first piece I bent. But came to realize I am not smart enough to figure out how to bend the Bellhousing part. O well cut and weld... FYI the extra hang over on the floor will be trimmed, bent, and then welded to the tunnel from the underside as well. Little by little this project moves on.

        Thanks everyone that has liked my pictures or commented on my post. I am super stoked on it so far. I added another piece tonight. I know it may seem to big for other’s but the hole is larger due to me centering my engine and drivetrain. Being a early A body it has a much smaller transmission tunnel. I would have been better off building all new floors but I have never done that and felt this would be something that I can do. First true project build right here. Things can only get better as I move along with it. Learn as I go. I am nothing more then a modern Hot Rodder.
