It'll make you cringe once you realize what happened here.  I post the good and the bad.  Hopefully never have to post the ugly.

Update on fumes box plumbing. . .  It's done! 
http://100mpgmotors.blogspot.com/2016/05/may-15-fumes-plumbing-done.html

Now, on to the next thing.

Windshield came in from Optic Armor.  I'll be posting about that with pics before too much longer.

Thanks,
Coop

Heat getting routed to the fumes box.  That's underway now.

Gotta hate when holes get stripped out of the head.

More updates y'all.  3 of them actually.  Got busy for a bit and didn't put any updates here for a while.

Battery mounting spot is pretty much done.

My vaporizer box has some details listed here.  But I got the temp probe put into it today.
http://100mpgmotors.blogspot.com/2016/04/apr-28-vaporizer-box-more-details.html

Exhaust temp probes are in.  EGT in place of O2 sensors.

I'm searching for either an O2 plug that I can drill and tap for EGT or a bushing to replace my O2 with my EGT on a 95TA LT-1 motor.  Anyone know what part number I need?

Brake hardware is in now.  Needs fluid and bled.  May do that today. 

Then all we need is fuel and cooling and I'll be able to drive it up and down the road in front of the house.  On fumes!  :-)

I won't replicate my thread from KC here, but wanted to let those know who hadn't seen my build yet... that if they want to follow, I have the build diary going on @

http://100mpgmotors.blogspot.com

Made huge progress today finishing off the exhaust and installing the axles.  Got the car on the ground and pushed it back in forth in gear to make sure it didn't roll; and pressed the clutch in and it did roll, so I know my clutch is good too.  SO happy to only be 3 away from a drivable chassis!  Fuel, coolant and brakes.  And I'll be rolling up and down my street after that!!!  :-)
