    The taillight lens is a flat piece of polycarbonate. As you can tell, it has been extensively modified and it is all metal fabrication. What you can't see is the gas filler door has been removed and put in the trunk area. Hood and trunk releases operate from inside the car.

    Very cool, I wish the gas filler had been placed somewhere else too. Good mod

      You are getting closer to having it going again, keep plugging along.

      Thanks. Next week, the exhaust system is going in. We will run 2.5 inch duals out the back with a cutout for racing. Dec. 20 it goes in to complete the interior.
