    coming along nicely.

    I looked at using a tang tank but it was a tad to long for my application due to where I had my exhaust hangers and stuff. So i just fabed one up using the mustang tank as inspiration. 

    So filler will be in the trunk/boot or will you make a hole for it above or behind the number plate?

    Tank filler comes inside trunk. Mustang tank are be now all place left, maybe my exhaust pipe convenience this leftover area.

    Exhaust .... narrow location doing that, but now is it ready.

    I do hope that is not a copper brake line.  Pure copper lines will not stand up to the pressure.  You need steel or the Copper Nickle alloyed lines. Other than that good job.

    I use stainless for all my brake lines anymore.  I bought a special flaring tool and it works great.  I hand bend them and use a bender sometimes, use a coat hanger or other wire to make my patterns.

    I am in the process of installing a 500ci Cadillac in my '49 Hudson and would really appreciate if you could show more of how you routed your exhaust from the engine on back. I don't want mine visible from the sideview and it seems like a challenge.
    Your work looks great, good luck!
    Thanks

    It is copper/ nickle alloyed lines, here in Finland sell only that brake pipes. Thanks you attention👍

    vesaku, Hi, Im new here but starting to do a ls1 swap into a hornet as well. found this thread while searching. not much info out there on a swap like this. i love the challenge.
    I was wondering if you had any more pics of the rack and pinion set up without the engine installed?  also if you have any part numbers for the rack and steering parts you used?
    thank you
