Un believable creativity here Bro! This is so clean . Having built engineering scale models of Oil refineries and nuclear power plants I truly appreciate your piping design and layout. Perfection!

Ok this is the last of the pluming work (for now ;-) Before I put all the tubing tools away I bent up the rear brake lines. As the rear has no brake line clips I made 2 weld on S/S straps to go on the U bolts and 2 S/S clips that I drilled and taped onto one of the 4 link mounts.
Thanks
Pat

It was a job I had in the late '70's. I worked at Ralph Parsons Engineering in Pasadena and Bechtel in San Francisco. Unfortunately ,the commute was so bad I decided to go back to cabinet making which led to me starting my own shop and I have been in the residential remodeling business ever since.
BIG fun building those models to perfecting scale as part of the design process. The models were then used on site by the contractors for 3d reference. It was one of those jobs where they had to kick me out at closing time.

I put the charger on the rotisserie so I can finish the bottom and prime it. I also have a small floor repair.
Thanks

I have been following this build since last summer and am amazed at your attention to detail and fabrication. This is an amazing project.
I have a Bullitt replica that I restored in 2006, stock appearing with addition of some suspension upgrades.

The car has this appearance full time now.

You should plan to bring your completed car to MCACN in Chicago when finished.

Started installing the torque boxes and have the left aft welded in. The US Car Tool boxes fit nice and only need a little adjustment. I added a 1 ½” hole for a future rear brake vent.
Thanks

Pat

Pat, It's obvious you've done this before.
Guys like me (novice) are learning from guys like you.
So thank you!
I will keep my pics coming on my build (I am behind)

I started on the driveshaft loop/crossmember today. Using a press I oval a 2” section of 6” pipe and hammered the top half to match the shape of the driveshaft tunnel. With the loop clamped in place and using a 15” contour gauge (a must have tool) I made two cardboard pattern for the crossmember. With the cardboard center section of each pattern as wide as the square tubing (2”) I was able to lay it over the tubing to get a precise line to cut with the plasma cutter. I still need to make the pattern for inside the tunnel above the loop before I can weld it to the floor.
Thanks
Pat
