I'm just finishing up getting my 351W in good running order so it's about time to start cleaning up the wiring and making it all pretty in there. I'd like to see what others have done so show off your hard work :)

I've had to repair my harness some but it all seems to be working well now. My spark plug wire for cylinder #4 seems to always find its way on to the manifold so I'm going to have to add some insulation to keep it from melting further.

here is a pic of before I pulled the heads to have them worked on. I do have a question about my air breather. I had to add the spacer to the carb b/c the secondaries weren't operating fully before. Now my air breather gets into the hood abit. Should I find a way to take out the spacer or is there a low profile 14" option?

Just finished my engine compartment. Didn't remove engine so it made it a whole lot harder to get into the tight spaces. To me, it looks 100% better than it did before.

Here is my 66. The before is a bit unfair since it had been sitting in a dusty garage for about 18 years before the restore!

Bet she does! And looks like you are using every square millimeter of that engine bay!!

Here's another....this is a 351W stroked to 392CI. This car scoots!

Its a custom set up from a local restoration shop in the Phoenix area. I believe they sell the set up. Here's a link to the shop - truss at bottom of page.
