Lookin' sharp! I love those shift knobs...they go well with the white parts of the body you can see in the interior.
 
I'm liking that rear 392 badge.
Is that the same as on the hood?
Don't those have pins?
 
Awesome build @ameldorf 👍 What's next?!
I think I’ll keep piecing together the remaining Metalcloak suspension/steering bits, a front driveshaft, and then add their 3.5” lift springs. Probably 35s around then as well.
 
Wow! Very nice work here. And you got this all done in just 6 weeks?!
Thanks. Looking back, brought it home March 4th. I suppose it’s been almost 8 weeks at this point : )
 
Looks good! I agree about the shifters. Pretty sharp.

just a heads up. I was told by the manufacturer that the Bushwacker hood protector will interfere with proper function of the hood scoop intake. 🤷‍♂️

I suppose it’s not out if the realm of possibility the hump in this hood protector could create some sort of turbulent flow that could make it harder for the scoop to work or harder to for the engine to draw in the intake air. I’ve not noticed any performance issues. I suppose I could data log IATs and compare with someone else. Prob take a wind tunnel to truly see what’s going on with vs without.
 
I called to buy one direct and they advised against it. reversed a sale.
