Thanks Marty, hidden in the shed it doesn't look like a complete car but out of shed I can see how close I am. Had it out again today .

Been a while, cut to the chase, got Cuda road legal 3 weeks ago. The entry cert process was great, failed on the Thursday on 5 minor issues, fixed them over weekend and passed on Tuesday . Very happy and excited. Have taken car out twice and fun to drive. Didn't take long for first issues to arise.
 Off the road at present due to water pump leaking, have new part arriving for Rockauto on Tuesday. Alternator was putting out 12.6 volts , turned out I had a pigtail join in wrong place, All good now. Was hoping to take car to local Cars and Coffee tomorrow but have to be next time.

 Last few weeks of build went great, had Covid too so got 10 days of shed time.

Great to see it out of the shed and looking sharp. Makes all that work worthwhile!

Cheers Marty,
 Those dirty horrid jobs  and the frustrating hold ups one experiences on a car project become a distant. memory once you get the car on the road. Am having fun getting out and about.
