    Whelp, I decided to toss the bits on to the motor to get an idea of what it'll look like. It's very...meh looking.

    What's wrong with the look? I think it looks nice. What a massive undertaking this has been for a DIY'er, in my opinion. I can't wait to see it run.

    These heads would really make it pop, at least to me.

    So, I got home, opened the door and was scared by almost walking into a giant box! I got my S197 dash from Schoneck Composites today and let me say, the box weighs more than the dash and, the dash looks great!

    I also started fitting it into the car as well.

    I started to actually get the dash in the car today. It is now the point were I need to cut the front of the top, so the whole dash sucks into the car another 1/2" or so, to match the shape of the windshield/firewall.

    Any section that I have cut, I have also saved, so I can tighten up any holes for the cage or the column once its 100% in place. That also gives me a reason to paint it, in more of a satin finish, more like a real car would have.

    I also made up the side brackets to hold the dash in. I used the factory dash structure to save time and, simplify the mounting to the car.

    Realize that the stamped steel is 2 pieces, not one... Time to burn it together.

    I welded the pieces together, so I can cut off parts of the factory pieces.

    Then, obviously, they get painted in satin black cage paint.

    That's a pretty cool twist. By the way, was the engine in the previous post a Kasse Racing engine? I like that you stayed SBF instead of LS swapping it.

    It was the only dash that would clear the dash bar and still fit the look of the car. That was the main reason of getting that one but, I do like the dash on its own as well.

    The motor is form Hammer Head Engines.

    I'd rather put a Subaru motor into the car than a LS of any sort.

    I played around in the garage for a bit and got the dash in the car. I still want to go back and make some small adjustments to make the top of the dash level but, I've had enough for the day. But, the dash is in the car and is no longer held up with tape.

    The next steps will be to close in what I cut out to clear the cage and then, paint it all a matte black to resemble the original finish.

    I also like, with the Lincoln console, not only do I have the factory window switches, it still allows room for me to add a radio with out having to reinforce the dash to hold it. I can make up a little section that will bridge the gap between the console and the dash to hold a radio, right behind the shifter. Hopefully, that will be fairly easy to do. Though, the next step is to get the windshield replaced and to finish the wiring.
