How many people have used a degree wheel on these L6 engines? 

 

I have found the only way to really ensure accuracy on the cam is to go off the valve retainer, preloading the dial indicator and recording the readings on the intake and exhaust opening and closing at .050.  The online calculators will then help you walk one into the required centerlines from the cam card comparing cam lobes in relation to the crankshaft. 

 

This is the only way I have found to work due to the lobe profiles on the camshaft being different. 

 

Has anyone else found a better way?

Did up a removable bash bar for the G nose and fit the lower half of the G nose to the bash bar.  The corner lamp mounts were pretty far off so the light mounts were cut out, then fiber glass was layed over the tubing that was masked and further trimmed to fit the bar once curing started to take place. 

 

The wheels, seat and mock up dash was fitted and pushed down the street for some motivational progress shots.  

 

The roll cage is put on pause until I figure out what would look functional while keeping it from looking like a jungle gym.

Little update to the build.

 

Its at paint (RM_Collision on IG) currently getting the 904 Kilimanjaro White. Should look pretty neat with the flares and wheels. 

 

On a side note, anyone have any recommendations on where to get a windshield?

This looks awesome! I am jealous at how fast your car is coming to fruition! Also, digging how you threw the bash bar on behind the G Nose, spiffy!

Been a while.  I had to pull the car from the painter / body guy.   Car turned out really bad.  Like embarrassingly bad and even got scammed 2k in the process.  

 

Anyways, got the car back along with all of the parts and had my good friend Chumpot take care of all the glass work.  

 

Recently dropped it at the painter, west coast jones, in Rancho.  

 

Oh, and started building an engine test stand.
