Thanks guys. Those are new NOS marker bezels I've been saving forever in case I ever got my car redone. It had that style originally but they were pretty beat up. The new ones were definitely not cheap lol.

 I'll bet! My elcamino was built in the fall of 67 and was supposed to have them too.

I found a set of the foil inserts on ebay for a good deal ($100 BIN) one time, but i didn't realize what I was looking at or how good the price was at that moment and didn't bid.

Never saw another set for less than $500. 

 

Kinda glad my car now is the 300 style and uses the unique bezels w/o engine number, otherwise i'd be hunting for those again. Really cool when you do see them on a car!

Made some major progress today.  We got the engine/transmission all bolted in.  I think I might get away with not cutting my tunnel at all.  It bolted right onto the original cross member.  It even fit in some existing holes in the frame.  The shifter position looks okay.  It doesn't seem to interfere with the console.  It looks like the very back top corners of the transmission may be touching the tunnel.  But I think I can dimple it out enough to give it a little clearance from the bottom.

Nice choice of transmissions!  Don't drag race it, you won't be happy.  However, you won't be able to get the smile off your face crusing.  Great highway trans too!

Its been a while since I posted anything. But I really haven't got much done.  Just been too busy with work.  I did get started on the wiring harness this last weekend.  I've been putting it off ever since I opened up the box and looked at the big mess of wires. I got all the wires laid out in the car.  I finished the wiring out the back of the car.  Now I'm waiting for a few more parts to show up.  Then I can start on the dash and the front end. I'm using a classic update kit from American Autowire.  

I have also been slowly working on all my pulleys for the motor. I finally got the remote power steering figured out(Thanks Ben for finding those pictures).  Still waiting on another alternator bracket since the original upper didn't fit the 502.  I had to send back my alternator because I needed a internally regulated unit.  I found out I cant use the Ammeter with this wiring harness.  Would have been good to know before I had the gauges rebuilt.  I guess that's what happens when you figure everything out on the fly.
