Not that much progress lately unfortunatly.
Been busy creating a website for our local (and only) dragrace club, which has eaten up a lot of time already; http://www.ExplosionDragRacing.com

But the engine-bay is filling up nicely though.
Will try to put up some pics tomorrow.

AHA!  So that's where that car went!  I almost bought that car but wavered on it because I really wanted a '61 four door hardtop I was looking at at the same time and when the '61 deal fell through I called the guy back with the '60 and he said, "Nope, it's sold to a guy in Europe."  Nice to see it went to a good home, and WOW are those some impressive updates to it!  Congrats!   The only question I keep thinking is, "you're not going to keep the drum brakes on the front of that car, are you?!?"  Post more pictures of that NYr, it's BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL!

Yep  It's over the pond being done by someone who seems to pay attention to detail.    He's just color blind.



That'll stir him up

OG,
The discs will be ditched in time, that's for sure. But I want to get the car on the road first before I tackle a (homemade) disc-brake swap.

I'm not colorblind guys, I'm just building the greenest car there will ever be

Fender covers, hmm good idea... we wouldn't want my tools to get green aswell do we...

I'm working on the wiring right now. I'm making the switch from the DC-generator to a one-wire alternator, and also from a points-ignition to a electronic ignition system. Also rewiring the high-amp wires and hardened wires with new ones in the engine-bay.
Need to install some oil & temp-gauges aswell.
When that's finished I'm ready to start the engine for the first time.

Then there are still some loose ends to tackle before I can go to the DMV with it.
I would be happy enough if I could just get the engine running next weekend orso.

Nope.
The car also doesn't have a full exhaust at the moment. Something I DO want have before I want to start it actually, so I'm able to hear engine-noises (If there might be any)
But I'll most likely cobble up some sort of temporary exhaustsystem before startup.
