Car looks great!  I believe I saw on moparts that you used goodmark fenders.  How are they?  I have been looking at amd fenders, but could save a good amount by going with goodmarks.  That extra money could definitely be used for the other items I need.

Good and bad, however my body shop had more complaints about the AMD door skin and AMD decklid than the goodmark parts. I spent good money on a few AMD parts and they had pretty strong opinions about the quality of those parts. That being said, I'm not sure I'd spend the money on AMD anything again...but that's just one data point

Got my power steering pump finally mounted. The pictures are showing my CAD concept through the part coming off of the laser and pump mounted.

Just curious? , how close is the alternator to the frame rail?  Was the stock power steering pump a clearance issue? Is that why you made the bracket to re position  it?

The alternator gets pretty close, id say about 1/2" away, but I'm not looking at it right now.

Stock pump puts out too much pressure and I also wanted it tighter to the other accessories.

Gotcha!  :2thumbs:  I wonder if you could mill off the pedestal mounts on both the alternator and the mount to get more clearance?  :dunno:

Off the top of my head I think you could, I do believe one has a two-way locator along the X-axis of the car. It's been a few weeks since I had it off to recall for sure. More clearance is nice, but close fits. I'm not really sure why one would need to go through the effort. :dunno: :working:

Inside the tach. The tach has a built-in GPS speedo that displays on the right-hand side, there is also a digital MPH readout in the LCD screen.

What is that top middle gauge for? Air-something?

I will be going down the same route, only with metric gauges.

Looks like an air fuel ration gauge.

It's an AFR gauge. I was going to use a voltmeter there but will just use an LED or some other voltage warning setup to handle that.
