Love the gas cap handle, but not for a GT but for arthritic hands. The caps are so large, tight fitting it takes both hands some days to get them off and on again. Now I'm thinking of a way to modify mine, maybe a piece of angle iron bolted to the cap?

Really looking forward to seeing more progress photos of this build!! The Coddingtons look like an amazing wheel. Are these 16"? What tire are you using?

Engine rebuild is complete. This started as a type 4 block, bored to 2.6L. It came with the car when I repurchased the project. I had the team at Carolina Coach Crafters go through it. It is a good thing I did because there were some bad cam shaft bearings. I hate to guess what would have happened had I spent all this time/money/effort on this project and the engine would have grenaded. Anyway... it looks awesome now. I am thinking a gun-metal gray metallic for the exterior and a hunter green leather for the interior. This motor should be awesome.
