Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback
Now all I have to do is get it past the engineers and licensed so I can legally drive it
Probably only driven it 10 miles all up so still breaking the rings in but it certainly is a beast so far!

You're one lucky guy...
No matter the odds against you, you managed to pull it off and it looks gorgeous! You can be proud!

For the rear seats belts, are you forced to have them on top by law?
Also you said, your engine needs to remain below 400 RWHP. What is the logic behind this law? A 395 hp car is ok, but 410 dangerous?
Or is it a tax category?

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress

Thanks Fabrice, still a few bugs to sort out but nearly there
Rear seat belts was forced to have fully retractable due to 20% increase in engine power and was easier to mount them on the parcel shelf although I had to mount the 6 x 9 speakers underneath to accommodate the belts.
With engine HP apparently there is a rule of max 180 RWKW per tonne of the heaviest variant with ours being the 429 SCJ drag pack which works out at about 1670kg or 300 RWKW which I reckon I will exceed
The Dyno tuner is aware of this and can tailor my initial tune report to meet this requirement, nudge nudge wink wink you know what I mean
Not a tax category just the nanny state government keeping its citizens safe from old lead footed blokes like me lol
