Today fuel rail tasted the fuel . Flex fuel lines done. I made a mistake with one drawing and wrong fitting was installed . That will be replaced on Monday . Gas tank and pumps permanently mounted . One factory exhaust manifold back on . Other side will be an adventure.

I wired up engine to microsquirt 3 , engine starts but not running smooth . I suck with electronics . I think I will focus on the fab , paint , cages etc first . 

Last part will be contacting someone who is a micro or megasqirt genius

Thanks for posting the pics. Pretty much the way I would do it if I ever get the nerve up to try making flares. Wire frame being key to the whole gig. Was wondering if you roughed it out on the bag or did all the stretching on the wheel or if you did any shrinking along the edges? Now I know!

I have a wheel and a bead roller, but seem to just make repair sections.
