Nice build. What Shelby apron did you go with and how was the fit?

Also, what steering wheel is that? Looks nice.

I picked up the Shelby apron from CJ Pony parts a few years ago. I just have it temporarily mocked up at the moment but fit seems close. I will have to trim and fit it a little, but that's to be expected.

Picked up a used 3D printer cheap last week, so I've been playing around with that.
I designed a Tach mount using Fusion 360 for the Speed Hut tach to clamp around the steering column.
Printed it this evening and it turned out pretty good I think. May need to tweak the dimensions a bit, but it works as intended.

I've gotten a little better at the 3D printer thing. Learning about how print rate, layer height, temps and other variables affect the final product. Also getting a better handle on Fusion 360. My second tach bracket turned out a lot nicer than the first.

I've been on quarantine the past 5 days as myself and my youngest tested positive for Corona. Thankfully our only symptoms are congestion, so I've used the time to work on the 66 and put on some of the parts I've been collecting. I installed new 4.5 leaf mid-eye springs to replace the stock ones. I also decided to ditch the dumps and mated Flowmaster tailpipes to my homemade exhaust. They fit surprisingly well after trimming a bit at the muffler side. I still have to put on the hangers, cut off the excess, and weld on tips.

I've also spent some time with body panels. Trying to get everything lined up right, get the gaps right, and get panels fitted. My factory doors were rotted badly in the bottom, so I pretty much had to replace them. I picked up some Goodmark doors a few years ago. They're not bad but the lines aren't as "crisp" in places and the leading edge of the driver side was off. I welded some thin rod along the edge and ground it to fix the gap. Got it mocked up so that it looks like a car again for the first time in a long time.

It's not gonna be perfect, as I'm no body man. But it will be solid and better than it was before.
