Well lots of progress has been made but much of it is just alot of minor stuff not worthy of photographing.

My wiring skills are shit but for me I am proud of some of the stuff I have been working on. I wired the fuel pumps and the cut off switch along with mounting the yellow top. The fuel pump relay is a leash board and is pretty sweet looking.

Made the plug wires and got them routed to the remote mount coil packs

I now have power to the cockpit and all the exterior lights. Time to start wiring the gauges, 3 step, trans brake and boost controller. At this point depending on my mood and free time I would hope to have it ready for a tune here in a couple weeks.

Some pics of the trunk wiring and then a layout idea of a control board I want to make to put between the trans tunnel and the dash for ease of adjustments and lack of another place to put it and make it look clean. going to do some measurements in the morning and cut that abs plastic to fit the best I can

Here is a first start up vid of the nova. Its is merely a base tune file to get it to start and listen and look for leaks. I need to get the mastercylinder back on the car and bleed the brakes so we can get some road tune time and get the car aligned then put it on the rollers.

It is a very proud moment for me I have spend countless hours and way too much money but its starting to pay off for me to see it light off.

When I first got the 408 fired up (naturally aspirated) in my '69 last summer, I was so stoked that I went out later for a 3-mile jog... and I hate running. It's a great feeling to hear it fire up, have good oil pressure, and no fluid leaks.

thanks everyone. should be finishing up the brake plumbing here sun/mon and work on a couple small things to get it rolling and stopping again. We plan on doing a little road tuning here on weds.

Anxious to get it out of the garage and wash the year old dust off the car and clean out the garage, man its filthy

Another monumental day for me, the car for the first time in almost 2 years started and drove out of the garage on its own power.

I changed out my s10 mastercylinder for a aluminum early vette master that is for disc/disc manual. I made new lines putting an adjustable prop valve in the rear circuit as well as a 10psi residual presure valve. I plumbed the front brakes with the hurst line lock. got them all bled and started filling up the transmission. I fired it up put it in gear and got it out into the driveway to clean the year old dirt off of it and snap a couple progress photos.

The car needs alot of work on the tune still due to it being a base file but Turner is coming over on weds to work on it a bit more and maybe cruise it around the block a few times before its ready to get an alignment then goto the dyno for some real tuning.
