bla bla bla, the trans itself has nothing to do with the pain in the ass that is running a manual trans.

I heard that tilton clutches took 8+ weeks to build, so I would get the order in asap.

Any more pics of the side skirts/rockers? Deciding if they will work with my planned mods... if you have a straight on side shot for a photoshop?

Car is coming together. Ive been working on making in ge gaps tighter in the door seams. The factory gap is just way to much. Now is the time to bring it in. Pics to come. Also on the way is Amida's 512 front bumper )))))) I'll be installing that hopefully next week and making a custom splitter kinda like Whodeanie's. Everybodys cars are such a inspiration to me and my project...thank you

I like the hood vent. Does it require cutting of the sheet metal (chassis)?

BV. Hoods a 03 cobra hood , narrowed a few inches. Where it is is pretty much as far forward as you can go without cutting the "chassis" . I woulda wanted it about a 1" more rearward but didnt want to cut it. It seals real tight. Just have to finish the bottom of it.

2.5....... The area was just alittle high....didnt take much to level it out. A deep V groove and alot of glass reinforcement should do it. Im going to let the car settle for a year before paint. Anything changes / pops / moves can be fixed before paint.

Good to hear that the box finally arrived. Come to think of it sending to a "park & ride" should've been a red flag.

Amida......the 512 nose arrived perfectly. When i did a search for greyhound where i picked was a terminal online but when i checked it out it turned into a park and ride and greyhound didnt upgrade there site as per. But.....Boxing is amazing and Greyhound did a good job with it....not like those UPS incidents the past fall !! LOL. Your quality is second to now and im MORE than happy with it. Pics to come !!
