Battery box behind the back seat and remote charging terminals mounted under the gas tank cover. Made a fiberglass bracket that hooked over the rear spreader bar - cables go up through the floor next to the battery box. A local exhaust shop ran the pipes. We reduced from the 2 1/2" coming out of the headers to 2 1/4" to make the turns a little easier, then back up to 2 1/2" for the Hushpower mufflers and out the back. Got these grommets from Street Rods by Michael, and made my own brackets to hang the exhaust.

Interior was posted recently, but I'll repeat some of it here. Seat frames and foam came from Wise Guys. We sent them the fabric and they made the covers as well. Rear seat is a front seat from a coupe, which gives me a tilting/reclining back. My battery box is back there, and some room for storage (probably a toolbox).

A couple of tips: Factory steering columns with shifters usually have a neutral start switch built in. These are usually missing on aftermarkte columns. Although they don't advertise it, Ididit will add a neutral start switch to a column for not much money - just tell them how high/low you want it on the column. That switch also includes a terminal for backup lights, should you want them (I did).

Grommets for passing wires through a panel are usually designed for thin sheet metal - when wiring a fiberglass car, often the panel is much thicker and not always even all the way around. A short section of rubber hose glued into the hole makes a good grommet and provides some strain-relief at the same time.

Another couple pieces - I added a 3rd brake light. I molded a bump on the rear window garnish molding to hold a strip LED. It shows at the bottom of the read window, but doesn't show when it isn't lit because of the tinted glass. The gas tank cover I had was intended to mount a rear bumper, but I didn't want bumpers, so I mounted oval back-up lights on the 'frog eyes' where the bumper would have mounted. I used side marker repeater lights off a Ford Explorer, swapping the yellow bulbs for clear.

Some of the earlier pictures were too large and wouldn't upload. Here is the chassis/body loaded on the trailer coming home from Redneck at the beginning of the build, a shot of the interior panels they offer, and a shot of the grille from Alumicraft.

I borrowed a set of wheels from my son-in-law that were 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern, but forgot about the backspacing. The fronts we had to stack washers on the lugs to space them out so they wouldn't rub, but we couldn't get the back wheels anywhere close. The wheels were from his Mustang and had way to much backspacing to fit. I borrowed the back set from Redneck for the trip home.

Thanks Janie - kind words. Took a little over 4 1/2 years. Color is from a Toyota Highlander (around '06) - Sonora gold pearl.
