Picked up the custom fuel tank I was having welded up today.. will allow a lot more distance between fill ups.  Now to fit it to the car and align the filler tubes.

With the engine and front sub frame in place I was also able to cut out the hole for the shift lever and the mounting bracket holes. Now installed on the car.

Engine pretty much plumbed and cables sorted. Just needs heater hoses and the last bit of wiring for the starter solenoid and ignition system.
