Finished with the heater blower install. This blower box is made of fiberglass. I knew that simply attaching the motor with screws would lead to breakage, as the holes are close to the edge.

I used 18ga. metal to fab a couple rings to reinforce the mounting location. Then I used silicone rtv on each side to "sandwich" the rings onto the box. It kinda glued it all together, super strong now.

Nice work man, looks like you cleaned up the firewall as well! Can't believe how bad they came from the factory- dented, smacked around, gross spot welding surfaces!

Why did you remove the air conditioning?

Bent-up the fuel line today. Replicated the original best I could.

Connecting to the Rochester is a bit of a challenge. Many of you might recognize this throttle cable bracket.

I didn't like it, so I made my own.
