I now have all the body parts except for the hood. Made good progress on completing the body assembly.

Spent the weekend working through small detail stuff in which the list seems endless.

The new water neck/fill came in and the fuel regulator hit it, so I had to relocate the regulator and redo two fuel lines.

I completed the front end wiring which included the head and parking lights as well as the cooling fan.

Lastly, I spent most of the time assembling the doors. Stupid me didn't order enough dzus fasteners & springs, so I'll be placing another order tomorrow.

Next project is installing the channels around the roof line as well as the door glass weatherstripping.

I also need to take time to call my upholstery guy to get a quote on the custom carpet.

The help section at any part store still has the handles. I get a lot of little things there. Also believe it or not the Dealer may have a lot of the little things hanging around. I found all of my headliner clips for the wagon at the dealer. I got the last ones ;-)

The stock chrome outer handles were repro pieces I ordered from Summit.

The inside handles were made by TNT Race Shop.

I have enough of the car together I was able to look at the weight to compare before & after.

Only thing missing from the scale session was water in the coolant system and carpet & headliner. Everything else was accounted for...I think. lol

Car with driver, but lacking coolant, carpet & headliner weighs 2847. I'd say complete the car should be approx 2925.

What did it weigh the last time it went down the track? When do you expect to make a pass with it?
