Looks great! Spacers on stock wheels really helps the look.

With the heater hoses as high as they are, did you have any issues with bleeding out all the air in the coolant?

So  a few things have changed since i last posted, still working away on making this car into something nice! I upgraded the shifter to a MGW shifter and man is this thing nice! super tight. i love it.. Also just for laughs because this thing screams 80's i got an eight ball shift knob!
And while i was at PRI this year,  I picked up these super nice Plazmaman valve covers!

Next thing i had to do in order to put the covers on was to build a catch can, and relocate the coils. This turned into alot of extra work.
the catch can was built out of an exhuast pipe and some scraps i had laying around.. ordered a few fittngs, made a trip to lowes, and started cutting and welding!

While i was fitting the covers, i realized that the dipstick is just ugly... So i wanted to do something different with it.. I found an old bearing race at work, and thought this will make a nice handle! Then i added my little touch to the top! I think it turned out really well!
I powder coated the race, and glued the top on.. then trimmed down the original handle and glued it up!

So i was on to relocating coils, and building custom wires.. Which was not fun at first, once i figured out what i was doing and found some tricks it went much much smoother!
