I've thought of a thousand ways to finish that bowtie, but i have yet to make a final decision on it. I think i'd prefer for it to blend with the surroundings and not really scream "look at me". I dont have a pic to show, but one thing i did was roll a piece of sheetmetal to tightly fit the contour of the dash directly behind it, then painted the same as the dash. When in place it looks like the bowtie was milled into the dash.

If anyone would like to offer suggestions on it, fire away !!

Sweet build! How much would you charge to make a couple extra stops?

Lot of nice things you've done there. I really like the latest wheel and tire combo.

What headers are you running?

Thanks ! Marq

The headers are Hooker #2455 with 2" tubes. These are early Chevelle headers and they fit great. One tube comes real close to the lower control arm on the driver side, since adding the tubular arms. Factory lowers had plenty of clearance.

Re: Bowtie468's Extreme '68 BuildPage

Maybe I missed it, but what size of wheel and tire (brand) are you running in the front?

Thanks! I can't make up my mind between the 28 x 8's or the 26 x 8's for the front... But you have convinced me to go with the 31 in the back....

Rob, i pondered that same question over and over. If you check out Eric D's " Silver Bullet " build page in this section, you can get a real good look at 26" Sportsman S/R's on the front, from a lot of different angles .

VERY nice Chris! I've been waiting to see it together for a long time. I knew that it would be nice, but I never imagined it being THAT awesome.

Re: Bowtie468's Extreme '68 BuildPage

Great info on the headers. So they will fit into a stock frame with no modification? They look like they tuck up in they frame pretty well, how much do they show below the frame? Thanks!

Yes, they do fit well without any mods. I'm using 68-71 big block towers. The tightest area is at the lower control arm on the driver side. Probably about 3/4" clearance since i added the Ridetech arms. Factory a-arms had plenty of clearance. Here's a few pics of both sides so you can get a visual on it.

Oh, they also stay tucked nicely inside the frame rails.
