Sorry if you mentioned this and I missed it, but what is the gauge of the steel you are using for the body? It's looking great.

Ya better be careful.... get that thing too heavy and that little SBC won't be able to move it around very well and you'll have to put in one of them there nailheads.

Seriously, its looking really nice. Love the swooping console and dash combo.
