    yes spins effortlessly and is solid as a rock. only had the pipe stands under it to catch it any happened as the was just put on it and if a weld wasn't going to hold it was going to be the first 24hrs. can is turned on its side now and I've cut out most of the rust just a few of the more complex spots that I need to cut out. I need to game plan those so I can make the patch panels the best way.

    Havent touched this in a long time. Its still going. Iíve collected pretty much all the parts needed just need body work done now and made a big step on that. Car is at my shop and on a rotisserie I built.

    Chassis is ready to go to the media blaster just gotta get a couple things out like window regulators and sunroof. Hopefully have it blasted by end of the month then I will fix the rust and send it off to the body shop for some fresh paint. While its out i will be blasting all the suspension parts and small little pieces and painting them. Will also track down a new 89 wiring harness and get that all figured out.

    Not much on the chassis itself as money hasn't been to free. I got some covers made for the seats. Will have them shipped and installed on my existing seats.

    Got a little bit more work done on the chassis.



    Also got the the intake a valve cover back. They turned out amazing i think. Cant decide if i should sand the ribs to be silver or leave as is. I think I'm leaving it as is.

    Haven't touched this in forever. I have been slowly working on the transmission. I got all the parts replaced and just need to assemble it. I had been able to work on it at school so I brought it home in hopes of finishing it up.



    If any of you have messed with the transmission before you'll see i done goofed assembling it and have to partially remove the gear train to get the layshaft in. Bentley never tells you when to install it and I've always gone by what comes out first goes in last and I removed that first so...


    Over the weekend the chassis was started.

    Interior and windows are out


    And the damage was surveyed








    This weekend I want to get the transmission assembled and get the majority of the wiring out so it can be sent to blasting. Need to get rear suspension off too.

    Also got my megasquirt from ssquid its kick ass.


    Scored this brand new greddy type s BOV for like 90 bucks on ebay with a last second bid. In the end only paid like 70 for it cause of the free shipping from Latvia


    Oh and I did this for fun too

    Transmission day 1:

    First started by getting shift fork etc off and empty the fluid. Then took out the 6 bolts for the input bearing cover.


    After that I took off the cir clip around the inout shaft i did not get a pic of these steps but found some on google




    Then i took out the case bolts


    Then i took out the reverse light sensor and pried out the cap with the spring and pin i forget its technical term lol






    Took out the reverse gear shaft bolt



    After i did that it was time to separate the case.






    I then took off the out put shaft flange using a machined down 30mm socket and 3 jaw puller. After that I took out the reverse gear locking plate and the gear it self.







    More to come Tuesday when Im back in the transmission room.
