    I'm not taking the credit... it's 80% him.

    He's in a completion competition with a co-worker of his. They both have had the projects as long, and were about the same closeness to done. So now they are seeing who finishes first.

    Motor mounts custom fabbed and motor/trans dropped in



    Need to get an offset shifter. The short bell housing helped clear the fire wall, but it put the shifter forks on top of the trans about 6"-8" further forward than the stock hole in the floor.

    Next on the docket, work on the trans mount.

    Went over tonight to lend a hand working on this trans mount. He wanted a 2nd set of eyes and some help with the grinding and such...

    I forgot to take a picture of the mount itself... but let's just say, it went from a solid piece, to a weak flimpsy thing, back to a solid piece.

    Got a few pics of Nate doing some welding



    Lots of cutting and grinding


    And we cut this big hole in the tunnel because the new big-o-trans keeps hitting.


    Then put in some relief cuts, so we can step up the tunnel and raise it for clearance.


    He's got some time off work this coming week so now he is setup for some one man work.

    It was fun to spend a few hours working with the metal. Something I don't get to do that often but enjoy.

    It's still a long way out... I'm thinking summer of 2014 for it to be done. That's just my POV, I'm not sure what Nate's thinking is...

    The car the other week


    He pulled the motor to work on the motor itself to button it up. He then went to work on some old repairs in the floor. Replacing the riveted in patches with welded in patches



    Buttoned up the tunnel after cutting it to make the new larger trans fit


    You can see where the old patches were vs what the new repair actually is


    Seem sealer applied



    Then all seal coated (like rhino liner)




    He's almost done with body repairs...

    Good deal. At least he's not taking any short cuts on it.
