Looking good man... Its like we are on the same progress. lol my June deadline is out the window also......I just got my 3TC back from the builder. and painted it the same way you did "ALL BLACK" even the trans. Now im trying to figure out my wire harness.... There's a couple of wires I have no idea were they went. And my Release Bearing/fork/clips are missing.... So I cant mount the engine in.

for the first time in five years, the car is out of the garage with wheels on it. doing final body checks, hood/fender alignment checks and hopefully will start priming next weekend. its great to see it looking somewhat as a car again......starting to see the light.

Looks Great.....Delete the Brake booster and install the Datsun 510 master cylinder. Much cleaner look

Toyo...thanks for the input. going to stick to the stock/original theme as much as possible. 2TG will be period correct, paint color original, all body parts original, seats are a perfect replica of original SR5 seats. rims and wheels will be toms racing, can always be altered later.

Next phase done....engine/tranny in, clutch working, brakes fully charged and working. electrical hooked up to the point to turn engine over....just for a second, I did the screwdriver in drill technique to activate oil pump to prime this freshly rebuilt engine. working on cooling system now and than get the fuel system/tank complete, install mikuni 44's and she is ready for professional to fire it up and get it running.

and than there were carbs

Extremely cool! 8)
I'm biased I know, but not much beats a 2T-G for character. Such an awesome little twincam...
