    Doghouse mod questions

    Daves 68 and van-Itti - thanks for the tips and potential for front half. Ive got the word out for complete 2nd gen.

    Wed like to do the removable back half that others have done for easier engine swap and maintenance. Does anyone have good pics or point me to thread with pics and description? I saw a post with Wookee describing his but saw he lost all photos of it. Anyone have a drawing to share showing details for cut location, reinforcement at seams, removable back half detail, etc.

    Also need floor section in front of doghouse. Is Custom Vanner site best place to reach matchstick regarding his floors? With V8 plan, would folks recommend the floor pan with air tunnel?

    I very much appreciate the help and knowledge sharing. Thanks much! VCVC members are a wealth of knowledge as others have pointed out in another post!

    cheers,
    ry

    Thumbs up

    Get ahold of Matchstick. He has a few different 1st gen front floors options (with or without tunnel (not sure on 2nd gen hole for Brake upgrade??
    but Probably can do) & ("I think") its in 2 pieces, Way easer to get in (& cheaper to ship from CA) It will be Moe Better than New
