that look good i was thing of doing the same thing. btw can i get better picture of you hood latch ? it looks like you did some thing diffrent?
The hood latch was modified by my brother when he had a SBC 350 with HEI on it, so there was clearance for the distributor. It was removed from the firewall, cut to keep just the top part and then welded "legs" that go down to the firewall. I had the whole assembly plated and it's just bolted to the firewall.

What do you want for one in stainless?
They would run $25 and include shipping, if there is enough interest. I figure it's a deal, considering a cable bracket like this from Summit is $17 plus shipping, anyway. ;^)
I may just make one up for myself in stainless and take some pics.

Yep, should help adapt many setups that want a clean, direct routing of the throttle cable. I know I can get the stainless ones done cost effectively and may have a way to do them in aluminum, as well. I'll let you know on that one. I'm assuming that aluminum will be the preferred material, right?

Yeah, I would like aluminum. So where did you get the other fittings, the cable ends and the fittings to the brackets? Did you adapt the stock ones?
The cable & ends are just the Lockar setup. I ground off both stock balls on the pivot bracket and went to a fastener stir to get the rod that goes from the pedal to the pivot bracket, as I didn't have a clean, OEM ball & socket piece.

Well, it looks like there are a few people interested in this piece. The cost effective way is to do them in stainless and I think I'll have half a dozen made up, since I've got a few of you wanting them. Probably have them done sometime near the end of next week. Stay tuned.

I might be interested in a bracket. I know it would mean changing some things on my car to make it work, but thats not a biggie.
