Thank you guys - I appreciate all the kind words.  Next up is the steering and I'm using an early Ross box.  I have it mocked up as being attached to the front hoop via a bracket and then a block on the left top rail and then also a block behind the Chassis Research gauge panel.
I thought I'd heard that the steering box can't be mounted to the front hoop but I can't locate it in the NHRA tech regs.  So once again I sent pictures to the Lead Tech Inspector at Bandimere for clarification.  I can't remember if I mentioned it or not but I'm keeping him abreast of the build so as we don't get down there and have issues.  Kevin is his name and he has been awesome!
He came back and said we're good and also said he ran it by "Sporty" (John Bandimere) and both said to "go for it." 
I need to find an expired flexplate shield and tranny shield for mockup but left plenty of room just in case.
