Plans? Looks like a pretty clean starting point. I'm looking foward to seeing it progress, as I dig the yellow car.

I am currently stripping the car and getting it ready to go out for sandbalsting.
when it gets back from blasting it will get a full cage and any metal work done that is needed
Then seam welding, tilton pedals and a fuel cell then more stuff, repeat as necessary

Things have been moving slowly so far, I have been waiting for room in my friends garage to get started with the cage. soon...

I did order the tilton pedal set today though.
2 pedal set with two 3/4 inch and one 1 inch master cylinders (76 series, the short ones) and a brake bias adjuster cable.

and got the metal and casters to make the cart to put the chassis on while I work on it

Now I just need to get the fuel cell sorted out and ordered...

Got the reverse mount, trying to keep it clean looking. Still thinking about what to do about the reservoirs though..

On subject regarding the reservoirs - I would have liked to keep them out of the engine compartment, but I really didn't want to be filling them in the passenger compartment. So into the engine bay they went. If I were to redo anything on that set up of mine, it would be the reservoirs. In the beginning I wanted to fabricate a nice aluminum tank to place on that little shelf in the engine compartment, drivers side firewall area. But in the end, I just didn't take the time to do so. It will probably get changed in the future, but for now it works fine with the Tilton reservoirs.
A little note on that Tilton stuff - avoid using the rubber line that comes with the remote reservoirs. It sweats the brake fluid through the line, and it inevitably starts to drip on your interior. Not cool, just though I'd warn you, that’s why I used a nylon type line (it's actually air brake hose and compression fittings).

I received my pedals and master cylinders today.
I also removed all the glass from the car and welded up a cart to put the shell on when I finish stripping it.
It is amazing how much stuff there is still left to remove from what looks like a totaly stripped car, every time I look there is one more little bracket or something left. It is very close now though. I still have to remove the door handles and locks, the fuel door and filler tub and the suspension then I *think* I will be ready to send it to the media blaster.

The quarter windows were a pain to get out of the frames but I managed to do it without breaking one or wrecking the seal (can you buy the seal that holds the rear quarter window in?)
