Nov 30 - Major advances

Hi all, it's been a while since my last update.  Seems linger than it has been.  Anyhow, there have been multiple advances all done within a week or so.

They are:

Oil pan tightened
Oil Filter relocation kit installed
Transmission bolted/torqued to engine adapter plate
Starter shimmed and transmission clearanced for it
oil added to transmission
oil added to engine
PS header installed for fitment check and removed
exhaust manifold reinstalled
PS main frame rail replaced (tons of fab and welding)
new bubbler picked up and tested on motor
shot video of motor running on fumes now that it is installed in car
1st run with starter being moved to other side of engine

Transmission is brand new
it's never been in a car before
it's first drink of oil. Mobil1 for my baby
G6 6-speed F40 as they're typically called on the forums

It's all 5w-30 anyway

Nov 10 - Places where axles will go

Here are some pics of where my new axles will live. First the drivers side, then the passenger side.

Nov 5 - I still need complete axles!

Another 6 weeks later and I still need axles!  Killing me.  I'm going with RCV Performance (more than likely).  Heard good things about them. 

I've got a conference coming up this month that I will be attending, and probably speaking in.  It's about all kinds of groovy stuff, HHO, fumes and more.  I'll speak on fumes this go around.  Would like to have had my kit car able to be driven into the trailer so I could take it up there and show it off (running).  But it isn't going to happen this go around.  Am excited about the trip and look forward to seeing all the groovy stuff there.

Will post again once I have an update and hopefully some axles installed!
