Wow, Since we share a last name, maybe he is the brother with the cool car that I thought I never had! I see he reused the TR6 heater valve, that's unique. I certainly would have some requests for advice. Maybe Dereck will bring it to Indy?

I really like that transmission tunnel; clever and you wasted no space. This is the 302 build to copy!
