Bolted up the alternator. I didn't realize that I had the stock 510 alternator on there... so I swapped it out with a spare IR alternator. I just need to wire it up now. Also, I officially have gas in the gas tank, and I'm running off of that instead of my gas-in-a-juice-bottle setup. I just need to make sure I keep fuel in there, since I don't have a fuel-gauge in there yet. I need to pick one up here soon. Apart from welding up the exhaust and tuning the carburetor, my car is ready to run. I've driven it around quite a bit already, and while it runs like crap, I can tell that I've progressed quite well on this car. Good times.
