Yep, the first controls are in the car now, which feels like a momentous occasion. I got the pedal box from the donor all bolted up, and the brake master cylinder hooked up to the brake pedal. Tomorrow is the clutch master cylinder. In order to do that, I have a couple of spacers that I am going to nickel plate on the bench rather than painting them.
Also, big news on the parts front - the first chair has arrived, which gives the car the look of, well, a car. It's not mounted up yet, or anything - I need to do work on the fuel tank and the firewall before I can do that.
