Trunk mounted, new roll bar and some other details.
After the car show I hauled the car back to the vocational school and we made up a new roll bar. The old one didn’t fit right after the body was on but the new one fits perfectly and just fits under the trunk without a bit of trouble. While it was there we went ahead and made up the trunk mounts and got them on it nice and square. the trunk goes back as far as the first picture shows so it is more than enough to work on it while the trunk it still in place. The front edge of the trunk window opening had to be cut off a bit to let the roll bar sit in it but it clears it just fine now and with the trunk shut you can barely see the bar. I still haven’t gotten the carb to run good yet. I rebuilt it but I must have missed something somewhere because it still won’t run well at all. The ignition advance was a pain to get free but after a lot of WD40 it came loose and turns just fine now.
