I milled the top of the battery so it snaps onto the brass body of it.

"Made" this for it today.  Designed a Mallory ProMaster Coil in SolidWorks. 
Then I made the factory mount to go with it.
 
I'll have them grown separately and assemble them to this configuration, and then add my own milled hardware and wiring.

The ribs around the top and bottom (with correct notches) have been added as well as the end details (flat panels).

I added the side terminals to the top and notched the rib in the main body to match.

I finally got around to bolting the starter onto the engine.  Just needed to make the hardware…

The master cylinder is done.  The cap was machined as were the fittings and mounting hardware.  The seals between the reservoir and cylinder were made from soft vinyl.  The decals were drawn and printed by me.

The header had already been modified to work with the other LHD converted pieces from when I wrote the Scale Auto article chronicling how to do it.
It was in two pieces still as it comes in the kit.  I cemented them together and filled the seam and ejection pin holes.  The flanges have been drilled to accept the mounting hardware (that I still have to make).
