Looks good bro! Like how ya mounted the speakers too!  :thumbup:

Sorry I kinda missed/overlooked your text, been insane around me for the last week or so with family emergencies, etc. No, Can't help ya with the BBC pulley. Only one I got is an underdrive for in front of a blower pulley, which is gonna make for some weird mounts in your case.....Tdawg should have sumpin lyin around....... ;)
