my main question is, will a standard corner shower stall fill in with little to no mod, and did the original back wall follow the body line or did it just square up with floor?i have seen zero pics of the back of the braves

Would enjoy seeing more pics, but please rotate them so us old farts can view without getting a sore neck.

Good luck with your project.

I'm not sure about the shower. I'd say take some very careful measurements and do some checking at Home Depot, Lowes, etc.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me will have answers for ya.

i dont mind the holley but i know i have to rebuild it, it backfired three times on way to were i parked it, so the power valve is dead, plus it is making the engine run rich. but it runs strong and pumps fine just needs carb rebuilt and all fluids and filters changed then rest of the rig is just remodeling!
