Rear panel 

Been healing up from some surgery so progress has been at a standstill. Managed to get the rear body panel mounted with barn door hinges. Have a little tweaking to do on it and make some support rods to hold it open.

I drove the valiant 1500 miles from western Ky to northern Va for christmas and then back. The new carb didnt come in time for the trip but still made it with only minor flooding issues. I tore things down yesterday to install new intake and exhaust gaskets before the new carb goes on. Just waiting for UPS to bring the gaskets now.Went with a carter instead of a holley. Hopefully it'll perform better.

Interesting for you

Replaced the old, bashed up trunk lid. After much searching, I finally found one for 150$, sadly not in white. Found one at a local Japanese Parts...
