Here is a little video of the car running and driving finally.   I took it up and down the streets in my neighborhood and I sure got some funny looks  ::rocker

My friend Carlos replicated the engine lid hinges from the OEM ones, he had them laser cut and then bent.  My lid would always rub on the 3rd brake light roof panel with the other hinges I had made, but now with these it clears just fine when you open it.

So been working on finalizing my engine lid hinges and making sure my roof is in the position it needs to be before I bond it. Today I worked on the emergency brake brackets because I want to make sure they are functional before I take it out on the street for a test drive  ::stop

Daaang autopro! Just have some panel fitting and bodywork left now.  ::headbang

Buddy I'm super excited now, I will start bonding my roof this weekend to start.  Most everything is done is just the final hanging and bonding before starting the body work.  Thanks Jay!  ::beers

Huge milestone. Congrats.

Thanks Dale I really appreciate it especially coming from an experienced builder as yourself   :notworthy  It is a huge milestone for me, now I feel like the rest of the work left should be much easier.  Like they say, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Jajaja Mike!

Well today was a pretty exciting day, finally got the car moving under its own power for once.  I wish I didn't live on a hill or else I would've taken it around the block.  Still need a few adjustments but it felt very good.   I'm super stoked to get to this point  ::bounce. Here's a little video for you guys to check out.

Yes....that's why you need one specifically designed for interior use.

Last year I bought a small propane heater at Lowes for $100 (on sale at the time).  It's output is 15,000 to 60,000 BTU.  I live up north in Ontario so without heating you really can't work in the garage from late November until around March.  The propane heater can fully heat my two car garage in about 5 minutes.  After about 10 minutes you'll be sweating if you don't turn it off.  A tank of propane (standard BBQ tank) lasts 2-3 weeks and only costs about $10 to fill at Costco.  If you get one, just make sure it's rated for indoors or confined spaces.  Best purchase I've made.   :)

Thanks Nick, the truck is for me.  I've been wanting to do a little project like this for a while.

The cold sucks, I don't know how some of you cope with it.  Some friends have been installing heaters and such to keep the garages warm, I'm glad I don't have that problem here.
