That is lookin really good! I love to see these awesome tribute cars! This one reminds me of another that was about to take shape in the long ago past, all you guys from the old days will remember this for sure.

Pretty cool.

Got one suggestion/Question if you don't mind...
Have you given any thought to having the roof spoiler line up with the natural spoiler-like line on the roof?

I did a bit of a mock-up of a roof spoiler on my '73 (Mostly out of card stock & masking tape) following that line.. I think it would have worked out pretty good.
