Awsome stuff Tony, it's really getting close now and by looking at the above pics, you're toploader is sooooooo dead.

Tony, just out of curiosity!!..........if the 393 wasn't big enough, how much of a NOS hit do you plan on using?

It would be worth flying back to WA to see this thing hit the track

Yeah thanks for that I will be taking it easy with the toploader this summer .
I will change this next winter along with a few other things .
5 speed or 6 speed depends on cost and advantages of both

It will be seeing a least 100hp NOS hit and maybe more sometime later .
Baby steps for me and the car little by little so I don't hurt the car or me .
My plain with the car is to sort it out to be perfect for me in the next 2-3 years then strip it down again and redo it from scatch or do another coupe
(option 1 will be more likely) .
I want it to become a icon of WA street scene .
