Bugeye restoration up-date

Since the weather here has been unusually mild for this time of year I have made substantial progress. Here’s a few photos.

Looks like from the weather report your work might be coming to a halt!

Raining here in SE NY.
re: your picture #4... I also ran the brake line over the shock and have considered whether I'd have to break that line to get the shock out...?
I put the shocks on after I did the brake lines. Should be no problem to remove.

Re: Bugeye restoration up-date

I did shift some gears but the car is in the garage and the transmission is in the basement. I was tempted to let it go down my steep driveway with just the e brake but I don’t know how I would get it back up.
