Heck, almost done now! Now would be a good time to figure out your exhaust routing - working it around the frame and the rear suspension can be a trick I found out.

I have thought about that. Im going to cut up the 4"exhaust off the big truck and run it over into the right front fender then beside the frame rail on the outside and dump it in front of the right rear. I don't think I could get that 4" through to the rear of the car if I wanted to. I plan on getting all the fuel and brake lines ran then set the body on it. getting the motor's drive pulleys set up to fit under the hood is the hardest part coming up. Then figuring out the wiring of the big truck to make it run. A lot of work but I did a rough estimate of what gas mileage I will get and it came out to 35 mpg. I had to use some estimates on weight and motor efficiency but I used the same numbers for my diesel truck and they were below what it actually gets so, if im lucky, I may have low balled the numbers for the car also. Time will tell.

Just run a big lakes pipe on one side. You could use two 2-1/2" pipes to run back. Might need 2-3/4"

Default moving along

I got the body sitting on the frame! It needs some more cutting to get it in the right spot (it needs to go forward around 4"s) and I still need to make body mounts and a floor but at least it looks like a car again

I absolutely love this body style slammed down like that. You are doing a great job, and I can't wait to see more of this build!

With the size of that fan it looks like it could pull you along by itself.
