It does look like a small block opening though.

Sorry I was thinking of a different one, yes that is decent however we wanted to go all the way to the floor line and our transmission tunnel will need to tweak the heck out of that design.

I am seriously slow at this type of work but I think my speed prevents us from rushing into a mistake.

Fabrication work like this is very time consuming and for those that have not done it they don't fully understand how long it takes. Looking great

Cleko's holding it in final position and Greg has trimmed it to fit.

Need to build the master cylinders bay for the Wilwood racing twins and finish the transmission tunnel and we are done.
