Very good job.Indeed.

Have you estimated when your GT will probably officially hit the streets?

Good work!

Are you not going to give the flywheel a light skim with the new goodies going on?

Really looking good sir.

Wasn't happy with the old 750 Holley, so I bought a brand new 600. Changed the jets from 62's to 65's this morning and put it in.

Did the vacuum flap actuator this morning in the correct colour, then put the air cleaner housing on:

overflow bottle for the radiator:

Most important pedal went in:

Shifter:

Need to do the shifter links soon, not looking forward to that as it's a crap job.
