So far its looking good other than getting the rotors to work. I may have to buy new ones. I think they are 11.5 dia. Who would have some basics that has 5/8 stud holes?580ci a460 head & a 460 block - Page 4 HPIM0693_zpsed74e8db

Check with speedway motors for the rotors. I believe they have them.

The anti roll bar wasn't really hard other than having to craw under over and between bars to weld but I got it done. I believe it'll hold.580ci a460 head & a 460 block - Page 4 HPIM0716_zps7e819dc7l

Yea, im figuring on getting some 1/4'' lexan and build one. I think I can do it. I want it to where it will stay on the carb when the hood is removed. That will require building a bracket kit. Don't want to spend 250 for a setup. I can build a nice one for bout a 100 bucks.

I wanted to go with the 1/4'' but it cost pretty good. I got lock washers and red lock tight on the screws and nuts. I was gonna rivet it together but its not coming apart without tearing apart. Thatlock tight stuff does damage or scores up lexan or glass period. I may just go ahead and paint it when I paint the hood. I may buy one later but not at the min. Im after front struts and coil over kit right now.[img:4f21]http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif]580ci a460 head & a 460 block - Page 4 HPIM0739_zpsdabb69a2ction/HPIM0738_zps1ebece80.jpg[/img:4f21][/url]

With this bunch, it's not necessary to explain an oil stain on your garage floor. Wink I tried to keep my new concrete floor clean...gave up on that nonsense two days later. Rolling Eyes

The car was painted 5 yrs ago. I just got this hood and just painted it and the color isn't matching up perfect but good enough for me. Once I put a few stickers on it it'll be alright.580ci a460 head & a 460 block - Page 4 HPIM0766_zpse71c46a0
