Hi NES
Yes I agree I also wanted to be able to run an FC cap and not the terrible plastic one.

I have found that a harley Davidson lockable chrome plated fuel cap fits the commodore necks good...
And if you find a plain one without badging on it .. it looks like an old fc one..

Sounds like a good idea Shannon, Are the commodore caps vented or non vented? Closest thing I can find is one with a lock on it...

What are you on about Deano?
Yes column.
No need for VX donor car as they were never produced with a 304ci 5L and not looking for one.
No. it's 11:44pm and it would show custom steering stuff and brackets that are not ready to be photographed

I though it's been a while since you bought a donor that's all 😚. I actually read your thread from the start cos a few thread I get confused with etc and I forgot about the column. I've started thinking ahead to mine and was wondering how the angles went and whether some uni's work better than another. You know how you said ages ago that the big loom coming through was a bit cumbersome or something, would you have done anything different. I have been toying with the idea of running a battery in the boot area and having a fair few wires coming from there. But I won't be running a factory fuel injection, I'm thinking of adapting LS heads to the sbc. Any thoughts on this at all?

Busy with work. Been out for a bit with some little cancers on my head too. Not disheartened just need time!!
McBean took the welder back but not before I could tac up some mandrel bends for headers. Doing 1 3/4 primaries into 2 1/4 secondaries and two 2 1/2 pipes all way to back with one cat and one muffler each bank and a crossover in between.

Here's the start
45deg dumps at back.

Well I hope my 15 year old boy starts helping a bit. He seems to have got interested all of a sudden now he is doing small engines at high school. He chose a tech school over private school but still doesn't know what he wants to do. Do yours have any idea? I can't remember their ages. She is doing a neater job than you bahahaha. Get her welding next. The best wife is a wife that can weld........but I never found one Wink

Yeah my young bloke likes soldering. It's good to expose them to different things so that they can have an idea of what future choices are out there. I thought you might say "my daughter is not going to date boys". But my boys are turning out to be much better than I was at their age. Do you have a before pic to slip in front of that one. I'm going to start doing that on my page a bit more to save people scrolling.
