Looks great, FYI Keith a Fulp does a great job of converting the plates from BBC to BBF.

You know you can just keep the Chevy pattern bell and use the plate to adapt, right?

I dont have stock powerglide bellhousing. this was a spare trans for my turbo mustang that was burned up in my shop fire last year. the bbc chevy plates i have are whooped, rather start fresh. going through the whole car throughout the weekend. front to back. nut and bolt everything, pulling brake rotors off and getting them re surfaced.

sorry i've been gone for a minute..... between child custody battle and wedding I've been extremely busy... sorry if I wasnt able to get back with anyone.. but thats all past and we're back on track. so here's where I'm at. brought the car in the shop, tore panels off, sending motor plates to keith fulp for bbf plates, and starting to rewire and make changes for my big block for setup.... so here we go..... if there are any wiring diagrams anyone has to share would be appreciated, used to build harnesses for the hotrods, but always nice to read and view others..... the harness was in pretty bad shape..... which I already new that... had already planned on re wiring

For the wiring I would suggest incorporating some kind of relay board. Really simplifies/safeguards the wiring in your car. I have used Nitrous Daves boards in a handful of cars that I've wired and really like them.

yeah, first thing i noticed when i bought the rail... no relays on anything.... lol.. the guy i bought it from said he struggled with wiring issues. im runnin alcohol, i was thinking about running the k&r system, but for what I need i'm just gonna build a new harness. but yeah, i definately frowned when i seen not one relay. there are a lot of good looking harnesses on google images.

Unless you have mad skills and a lot of time on your hands, the K&R system is hands down the best way to go. In fact even if you have time and skills.

I like the K&R deal too, just didn't have room for the huge switch panel in my car.
