Dave congrats on MSOTM.
At the same time, I can see so much progress that I can't believe it. Your beginning
he was uncertain. I see great advances in technology. It already looks like a car. Don't let up, you're doing well.

I don't know if it's a mistake in translation or thinking - the result should have been praise.

You've got the expression correct. Killing it! applies here.

Thanks, guys! The engine showed up today and I sprayed a round of build primer. Iím working on dash details, brackets for the remote brake booster, and did a mock-up of the radiator so I can get that fabricated too.

More advances. Worked on the heater plenum to make that functional like the original. Dash is almost complete with the glove box door and grab handle in place. I still need to figure out the bottom mount on that. Fuel filler door and recessed pocket done too.

More to come! I started block sanding a little to smooth things over. Collected a bunch of correct small parts like washer bottle, pump, fuse box, side mirror, under hood tool box. Fun stuff!
