Looks good Mike! What kind of wheel are you going with? Ryan

I think it's a Scott drake by Corsa wheels

This is one hell of a restoration. Great job. If you ever change your mind on the hydraulic clutch, Malwood makes a great kit. Thats what I have on mine and it feels like my wife's jetta. 

I battled with this hydraulic/cable decision for awhile.  I just know I would be the guy have problems with hydraulic.

Just got done with battle in my head over cam choice. Now it's electric or clutch fan. LOL

Progress from the weekend.  I received my clock to tech conversion from Bob RCC innovations. What a cool piece. Pulled out my spare clusters and got busy cleaning. Painted the needle on the speedo and reassembled with a new lens from Don Ohio mustang.  

On to steering column and MDL clutch cable. Then cluster and steering wheel.

Holding off on installing the horn button till after I get the car aligned. I'm sure wheel need to be lined up.

Great steering wheel choice. Same as mine. I also have the MDL cable kit.

My intention this weekend was to dig my back window out of my closet and get it ready for install. 

Instead I did the  throttle cable and charcoal canister .

I was talking to my brother on the phone this week telling him that I thought the shifter that came with the Tremec is a little tall.  I received package yesterday with a note " thanks for helping me move to AZ " He sent the original Hurst shifter to his Boss 302 telling me he had bought a N.O.S for the car years ago.

I'd cut that new Hurst to pieces before ever thinking about touching the 70 stick. 

My plan is to cut the new one down first.   I do think the new one is too long as well.

Let me know how it looks/feel with the shorter Hurst. Right now I have the long one that came with it and I feel that I could use a shorter one.

I made mine from a hunk of 1/2" aluminum. I just cut away everything that didn't look like a shifter lever.

Knocking out those small parts now will help speed things up once you get your engine back.  Your going to have some nice pony power under your hood.    Looking really good.
