Got the gas tank mounted, fits like it was meant to be there - well actually, I looked up the dimensions online and sized the frame to fit it - nice when things actually go as planned....

Mounted the Steer Clear unit today, solves the usual interference problem with the head and column....

Chopped up a perfectly good set of headers today - 567 Chev was about as close as I could get but they didn't fit under the fenders - slice and dice, presto changeo, Packard BBC headers!

Headers and that steering system you have are two things I am considering for said headers. I have the original steering column and to keep my old school original theory, I am considering getting a pair of upright derby headers and and slicing dicing them into a custom fender well exit to clear the column.

Great work, continue!

Yeah, I know the steering unit is expensive and not "old school correct" but it sure solves the problem. But then how "correct" is Packard gasser?? I'm already creating a 'never was' kind of thing here, so I'm just writing my own rule book. To heck with the "can't do that" types, like Frankie said - I did it my way....
