Finally drove the car into town for inspection.  Drove into the inspection stall, turned on the low beams, then the high beams, then the right turn signal, then the engine quit and everything went dark.  Blown fuse.  I had added an extra fuse panel and the fuse for the front lights had blown.  Replaced the 20amp fuse with a 30 amp and everything else seems to be OK.  Car seems to ride and handle really well.  Haven't really pushed it yet but seems pretty stable, at least up to an estimated 80 mph.  The speedometer is not hooked up yet since I am going to use a Cable-X "black box" to convert the T56 six speed electronic signal to a mechanical output for use with the old speedometer and that unit has not come in yet.

The aluminum "air box" was fabricated to fit around a common round Fram paper filter.  The duct work is flexible aluminum bathroom vent tubing, available at most home supply stores.  The stainless steel engine cover was fabricated to cover the fuel rails,injectors, fuel injection wiring, and distributor.
