Thanks, I to had mine on a stand since the torque boxs where shot and I didn't want things to bend on me.

Here are some shots of the cowl work I did I tested my fab skills to the max but it came out good. I had planed on finding a sothern cowel section but but $500 to $1000 to get it here plus I would have to split it and coat the inside anyway.
I figure I have about $40 in materials to fix it the way I did not including the time of course...

Good work, very clean. It is a labor of love to take one down that far and bring it back. Keep posting updates.

Oh and I plan on putting the 351w back in. I may get a 408 stroker kit at some point but it was running good when I pulled it so I may keep it as is to start with. The car had a 302 from the factory but 351w was in it when I got it.
