Fiddling with engine bay items to make sure the webbers clear.  Also have fully functioning brakes now.

New harness came in, which allowed me to run the rear harness and get glass and some interior done.  Have some wiring to run for a gps he wants, then the headliner goes in.

Nah, door cards, but yes your car.  Your x member and pan were test fitted and in the car ready to be welded up.

One step closer, I got the alternator, starter, ignition switch, fuse box and a few other bits wired up now, and it cranks over with the ignition switch! We just bumped it a couple times cause it has no oil in it, and Dan needs to install the oil cooler and lines and put oil in it before cranking it any more. Next step, oil then gas and button up the intake and exhaust manifolds, then crank up oil pressure and see if it will make some noise!

So busy with my car hadn't had time to post here yet.  Dave was a God send getting this harness sorted.  I can continue on and actually get it running now!  He probably saved me a week or more of being pissed at a harness had I kept trying myself.
