looks good man the only thing i can say is if you were relocating the battery and had everything out why didnt you cut down and repaint the trans mount on the frame?

Wasn't planning on relocating until after the swap, and plus I'll be running a trans cover to hide all that stuff

Working out a few kinks, and getting MS tomorrow. Hoping for the best and that I can get it back on the road.

SOOO CLOSE. Car should've been running and on the road as of last night, but the timing was off. It'll get timed properly this week, then tuned next weekend.

I know the last pic is really shitty, but the GAUGES! MegaSquirt is all wired in and ready.

They're tilted slightly to face the driver. Unless you're talking about the way the gauge sits in the bezel, it so I'm not worried. I can easily move them. I'm more concerned with getting the car on the road :rofl:

I posted the GTA chapter meets over on NeonCanada. I made them the 3rd Saturday of every month at 8pm over at 403/Dundas. The exact dates and any updated info is in the NC thread. Come on out!

As much as I'd like a nice video, my main concern is having it on the road driving...... then I can film and post a good video.
