Looks like some firewall and tunnel work in your future. I'm guessing that bell housing is huge.
I wonder if you had to get creative with the firewall if you could gain a bunch of room by making a bit of a dashboard and push the dash and front seats back..........if you needed to. Just thinking out loud.
That would be kinda nice you could have an actual glovebox & enough room for....................stuff. I'm not talkin' like that Mercury minivan with a dash the size of the deck on an aircraft carrier but something.
"My dad's got this awsome set of tools dude, we can fix it."
I had planned on doing some firewall work and building a custom dash already, maybe a tilt front end. Getting kinda cold in the garage now, 15 degrees today
