    So I was able to finally button up the rear end today, made some shock mounts from some L clips that we use at work & of course reinforced them a little bit. I was able to use an existing hole where the original knee shocks were mounted to on the chassis. I also put the new wheels on to make sure they are centered in the wheel opening. This weekend I should be able to mount the transmission & hopefully send out the drive shaft to get cut!

    It's nice to have every other Friday off! After dropping my boy off at kindergarten I was able to tear into the car. I attempted to notch the original crossmember, but no luck there I had to cut it & was able to stuff the transmission, barely. I had to step down the e-brake brackets in order for it to be useable and clear the future mounting bolts!

    Today's accomplishments, with the help of fellow hambers post & suggestions it was a breeze to get the front drums switched out.
