    Great web page!!
    I assume the weight loss cooling system is a race only application.
    I get the same info on your web page for the brakes and alternator.
    Yes go ahead and do what you want with the table. I will e-mail it to you.

    Someone asked about the WS fiberglass parts. I have used parts from them on both my 67 and 68 and liked the parts and doing business with them. Don't know about the 70s stuff

    VFN has the lexan windows, but they do not have the weight posted on their site.

    I have added info (see post 1 for the table) about drive shafts.
    I have e-mailed several companies about Lexan and have not heard back from them.

    Where do you get these fiberglass hoods and fenders? or do you just have to fabricate them yourself?
