Did some bondo work and paint over the fiberglass patch. First time using bondo and fiberglass and I actually really enjoyed it. It looks like its really wavy after i sanded it on the corner but thats just the discoloration an you can tell its straight on the pictures after i painted it. The paint isn't going to look consistent but neither is the paint anywhere else on the car and it looks a lot better than the huge hole. I'm not sure i will like the black deck lid with white car but I want to see what it looks like.

Installed the spoiler with a little bit of finagling because of my "custom" spoiler mounts.



Removed the a-pillar and riveted on the gauge pod. Drilled holes for the wires to the wideband. Not sure what I will put in the second pod down the road if anything but can drill the rivets out if needed. Looks good enough for me! Just need to route the wires back to the engine compartment and wire it to a switched power and a ground. Might hook out the outputs to the unused pins on the obd2 port for data logging while tuning etc.

Finally got the seal in the mail and installed it. The trans is finally back together and hopefully correctly. Made sure it shifted in the all the gears and spun the input shaft to which was pretty hard to turn but hopefully ok. Going to try and get the everything back in the engine bay and start working on fabricating the exhaust this weekend. Planning on sending my ECU out to intense with my mods list to get a tune since I can't find anyone around here that wants to tune anything other than hot boy cars made in the last 10 years.
