I really ought build a website somewhere I suppose. In the meantime I have some pics at ClubPhoto. So I'll post a few smaller ones.
I've done quite a bit of stuff, nothing really big. I'll leave out the stuff very likely to be changed and stuff I haven't taken pics of.
Early on I bought a TCP "X-brace" and made my own subframe connectors around them and the car itself. I haven't been able to take a good pic of what all this looks like installed so here's the last one before that. My bits are gray primered. The wider sections are where the rollbar hoop braces go through the floor and mount.http://a1.cpimg.com/image/63/87/16280931-002e-00800060-.jpg
My package tray with speakers hung underneath. http://a4.cpimg.com/image/B0/9A/20955824-06ee-00800060-.jpg
I installed a Competition Engineering 8 point rollbar. Standard kit stuff mostly but I quickly realized I wanted swing out door bars. Available stuff seemed pretty cheesy to me so I made my own latches and hinges out of solid steel. Took forever. The hinges are constructed similarly. http://a2.cpimg.com/image/5E/D1/30425182-d6e2-00800060-.jpg

My "needle bearing" version of Opentracker's fine roller spring perches. They look good and fit well but unlike Opentracker's they are as yet UNTESTED. Do not try this at home. http://a3.cpimg.com/image/21/9D/39176993-f2e4-00800060-.jpg
My Chevy something swapmeet overhead console. I covered the base with extra headliner material which isn't real obvious in the pic. The color is a darker gray than the flash makes it look. I connected up and modified the electronic compass and thermometer setup from a 99 Explorer to fit in there. Not easy but it all works (finally). My dash area was maybe getting too cluttered so I was happy to have some room for a set of rocker switches in it too. The wires in my roof and sail panel went from one to the domelight to 27. Including a couple for the "radar" intrusion sensor for the car alarm hidden in the rear of the console. (If you just stick your hand in the open window of the car when the alarm is on, it sets it off)

And lastly my '77 Mustang II console with center mounted emergency brake (which needs a black leather handle) and a little of the very "Recaroish", if not actually Recaros, '88 Conquest TSi black leather seats I have in there. http://a2.cpimg.com/image/DA/F6/51115482-5709-00800060-.jpg

Well If anyone wants to click on my truck and trailer they can go to a few pictures of some of things I've done to my 65. Its not a website but just some photo's.

If your interested take a look. After a couple trips to the track :track: to prove to myself and others I'm totally nuts and the car would do everything I had hoped it would do. Car's started on hopefully last time major mods project which will make it more extreme and finshed than its ever been in the 25 years I've owned it and will be off the road for at least a year or more.

Then to spend the rest of its life cruzin to shows and turning heads wherever it goes and leaving the the track to the track only car I'm going to be building.

This is my page with some of the mods that I've done. Not pictured is relays for headlights, sequential turnsignals, stacked plate transmission cooler with 900 cfm fan, adjustable thermostat for the electric fans, and probably a couple of other mods I can't think of at the moment

I am in the process of CNC machining an alum axle clamp that will allow the installation of an aluminum tie rod-fastened panhard rod kit.

I am also in the process of mocking up the clay on the original interior 1/4 panels for a midbass 8" driver with grille cover.

Last but not least...it is getting the $$$$ for an FE big block rebuild with Edelbrock heads, custom crank, rods and pistons.

I might just change the original cluster to an aftermarket unit....but we'll see what the SWMBO says...

Looks like you included the cat-converters with mod-motor install.

Well done. I often think about adding a pair to my car... just to feel a little Green.
