Plaer, you sound like my kind of guy. I started my car along time ago with wild dreams of how it would be, soon found out it takes a lot of money these days to do these cars, like all the pretty shinny ones around. I had to stop and regroup and just be satisfied with building a safe driver. In the beginning I used to go to some of the local car shows, got very discouraged, because there was no way I had the money to compete with these guys with bottom less pockets of money. But i'm proud of what I have accomplished with my car, at least I can say I have done all the work to my car, wish I could do a lot more to the car, but there are priorities. Just try and figure out what level of build you can do. And be happy with it.

It's just frustrating, I miss the days of working in a shop and had access to a hoist on the weekends. I guess I'm in a better spot than the people that have multi decade non running projects, but, my needs to get mine basically running and driving are so small, but every aspect takes so much work. Argh.

This I understand.....worked about 5 years on our 72 Vette and we got tired and frustrated often .....

Are you sure you are 3/4" fwd? That's alot of distance for 3/4".
I ask because I have the Earl Williams 3/4 mounts and he sold me the firewall recess pieces to clear the valve covers.
