Sounds and looks great!  Congrats on actually driving it!  :2thumbs:

Thanks! Unfortunately I am dead in the water until Wilwood returns my recalled master cylinder.  :bricks1:

Personally I'd grab a reman OE master with the same bore size & get the car out to the show....

All of the hardlines are quite tightly spec'd to that particular master, otherwise I would. It's not worth the heartache, the rebuilt master will be here on Tuesday.

I see your point... Sucks, cause I know you've busted your butt to get your car ready for the show...

That I have, it's frustrating because all else I have managed to get done. A brand new part let me down and the supplier wouldn't really work with me on it. They'd sell me a new one for $150 [from $240] and ship it ASAP or I'd have to pay for overnight shipping, which would have gotten here yesterday. Not worth it.

There will be another show, but all-Mopar is hard to find around here.  :pullinghair:

How did you focus on work? Or even park near other cars? ;D

Full package look right there. Even the stance is nailed.

Great build Goody, really nice to be able to bring it to work and let everyone see what you do outside of the office. 

You may have said, but were you able to get it to start with just the key, or did you have to use a push button?
