Thanks for the input. I'm a newbie, so all advice is appreciated.
1) I am pretty sure I modified and mounted the gas tank per the CMC manual, but I will double check.
2) I think when bolted to the rear subframe, the body will sit about 2" higher than the pictures show. It is possible the body could is "channeled", not sure. I am going to change the fan shroud for the recommended 71 shroud (which I just found). That's annoying because I bought the non-heater shroud specifically. The carb linkage may be problematic and the air filters will have to change to something lower profile for sure.
I think my plan is to continue the door mounting head trauma so I can confirm the door gaps when securing the rear portion of the body. Sure would have liked having either a template for the door install or having them come installed on the body as the CMC cars apparently did.
Question: Has anybody seen a type 4 installation in a Speedster? I have a nice 2.0 type 4 engine I might want to swap in later if it is feasible.
