The engine was started up for the first time yesterday - using different carburetors - I'm going over to check it out and see if there's another option for mounting the oil cooler off of the engine. The exhaust should be mounted and the carbs could be attached while I'm there - I'd like to get the start up with the Webers and the Python on a short video.
I ordered gauges for the car today - Oil Pressure, Oil Temperature, Cylinder Head Temperature - the plan is to mount them in a 3 gauge cluster where the radio normally goes - so the bone stock interior them will be 'off' with this gauge cluster. Routing the wires is another task that will get added to the list - I may try to do most of it while the car is still in pieces.
