See it from the front? I guess I am old school (or just old) no, I am sure that's not it.

Yes, they look wild, but not my cup of tea. The Scat V-4, that's another story, I could be coverted to the dark side of water cooled for that.

How's your quest for a 22R coming along?

top of my steering box was loose, as in, almost ready to fall off kinda loose Shocked tightened it down and it's way better Rolling Eyes

also loosened my oil filter, I think I had it too tight and it was leaking.

Put about 150miles on it just "driving around"

The dealer I work for is in the process of buying a Toyota dealer, so once you get an engine, I can get oem parts for you at employee discount.

I currently get employee prices on: Ford, Dodge, Jeep, Mazda, Honda, Hyundai, so if I can help anyone out. Let me know. Smile

Well I finally cut the rear apron off the bug. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it would. I also started sanding the roof to smooth any rough spots.
That's about it for today.

I think they can't get a GM dealership. There is a lot of politics (sp?) in buying a dealer.

tried to fix my dilemma (sp) with my trans. Found it fit better if I raised the nose up. Had to cut my floor pan and such to raise it enough. So Sad
I'm trying to keep my factory seats and really don't want to put my shifter above the tunnel. Anyone else have any ideas or am I SOL? Neutral

I installed the driver seat and removed the old steering column. I also put new 195/60/15 tires on the rear.
