Thanks guys!
Another update, nothing much, but still something. The past week we've been cleaning/modifying/rebuilding the headlight buckets. Decided to use the inside headlights as air intakes for the turbo. We found some Spectre headlight air intake funnels on Summit Racing (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SPE-9787/). The outside headlights will be S-10 High/Low beams. In order to get the funnels to fit, we had to modify the headlight housings/buckets, A long process with an enndmill on the drill press... The stock trim ring fits around the funnels so that was no issue. Found some 1/4" mesh at Aubuchon Hardware, a 10' roll for $10, had plenty of room to mess up! (Also a better deal than some online stores, get more for a lower price. Painted everything in Satin black, but painted the inside of the funnels aluminum so they "somewhat" resemble a headlight, just so the actual headlight doesn't look lost.

slow progress. hood is on, not painted yet, but on, front and rear bumpers stripped down ready for paint. just mounted the battery box, put the shut off and jump jacks behind the license plate.
There's really no good place to mount the battery shut-off and jumper-jacks, so we were looking all around, trying to find a good place. ...Why not behind the license plate? We put the jump jacks where there are two bumps in the plastic where the plate stops on, cut those out and put the jacks in. Then made a plate for the shut off to go where the fuel fill used to be. We plan on getting a (Caprice? what year??) license plate bracket that stays folded down when we want it down.



Battery box mounted
