1959 AC Aceca

After purchasing this race Aceca, the owner is having several modifications done for both comfort and performance. The steering column is being raised three inches from where it currently resides, including moving all other necessities around it, the pedals will be moved 4 inches forward for even more leg room. The entire interior floor will be heat shielded and possibly carpeted, the exhaust headers are removed and will be jet hotted and heat shielded as well. Pans will be made for the inner wheel wells in the front, and on the inside of the engine bay for additional shielding. And last, the entire front end of the car will be re-painted due to bubbles in the paint from the lack of heat shielding previously. When done, this race car will be fit for the best.

October 15, 2014: 

The pedal box has been relocated for more leg room, and now an expansion box is being fabricated to make more width by the pedals. The steering wheel has been relocation, and the new gauge face plate has been fabricated as well, but it still needs to be covered in red as the previous one was.
