Big fenders will make it a little tight to get in and out of . I don't have a good factory steering wheel . I have a cross bolt wheel off something , so delving back into my race car days I made it removable to make it easier to get in and out of .

Getting a little further along .

Using exhaust studs glued in place (bottom hole are through to oil gallery) instead of the bolts . Just make sure you put he rear air deflector on before the oil pan or you will be pulling the stud back out to do so like I did :cuss: :roll:

It’s amazing how many times a fella hits that little brake thing. And try’s not to. Be good to see what you did Dave.
