Hi guys, update on progress ... still waiting on my transmission, but did receive a bunch of other goodies - it was like Christmas on Saturday for me! So over the weekend I unboxed and installed my US CarTool inner fender braces. They are sweet, can definitely see how much support they add to the structure of the car. With those installed and the US CarTool frame connectors, car should be plenty stiff to handle what the 440 and TKO will throw at it.
Pictures below of the install!
