    Got most of the underside done. Ran 3/8” hydraulic lines to the radiator for transmission cooling.
    I messed up and ordered a 26” radiator instead of the smaller non AC that my car actually used. I’m ashamed of it but, decided to drill a couple holes to accommodate my ignorance.
    The cooling system will be more than sufficient if not correct.

    The electric fan answered my question about a fan shroud, you not running one or a mechanical fan.

    Dakota headers... no complaints,yet.
    Looks like they’ll be compatible.

    I put those on a cordoba I had once upon a time. I had to beat them like a redheaded stepchild to get them to fit. They ended up in the trash when i blew up that 360 2 weeks later. Looks like they fit the c body barely. Nice work. Keep the Kroil flowing.

    The stock exhaust has to do some fancy acrobatics to get around the torsion bars and what not, don’t think these will present much more of a problem.

    If the odometer starts rolling backwards the restoration will go much faster.
