Driveshaft finally in after we miss-measured it.

Man, this is some great stuff! Makes me feel like Mickey Mouse working on my car, haha! All the same, I love seeing beautiful, well thought out cars, and yours is very neat. I don't think I'd have the patience to go through all of this. I'd want to drive it NOW! I also went through MDL for my transmission and such, they were really helpful when I called them and they helped me dodge a few bullets in regards to my clutch.

@jbman - I sure enjoyed working with them as well. We screwed up and ordered the drive shaft too long... OOPS. The time factor is real, it has been 2 winters now at 7 months a pop. Target fire is this week and I am in an auto cross this weekend for the first time ever. Pray for me... Thanks for your kind words.

Couple items left on the ticker. I think the new 3 point harness is giving Curtis fits. Any feedback on those? I have the one from WesCo that mounts below the quarter window in the back seat right behind the door jam.

There might be some autocross action happening this weekend with the Rocky Mountain Mustangers Group.

I was super torn on this decision, but wanted to just get it done and still use the back seat. IF anyone can show me proof that a loop and crossbar is acceptable for a back seat rider, I would LOVE to see it.

No flogging yet, we are down to exhaust and the export brace situation. :-) We did fire her a couple weekends ago, but ran into spotty work from other shop on the rad fans and had to F with them first as they weren't kicking on. Bandimere on the 11th is the next goal.

255 on the right, a borrowed 275 on the left. Seems like I still have a fuzz more room to grow. But the center bore was too small, so I need to order a Percy's Wheelrite to confirm max. Bump stop tabs will be cut off soon.

Electric fan relays were wired incorrectly. When we fired and let her run, they would not kick in. Fixed now.

This 2.25 inch surely is too small too. 3 inch to the rescue.
