    I am in the middle of a t5 conversion on my 235 chevy we may be able to learn as we go. Keep an eye on the junkyard in Armington. I'm finding good stuff there.

    Well today I found a place to buy cheap sign's for my custom floor board. 24"x18" blanks are $26. I need to make a cardboard cut out and find out how many I need for my holes. They are aluminum too. Now I got to cut all my nasty metal out and rivet these in or screw them in. I will figure it out this summer.

    Well other day I tried putting on a grant steering wheel and it don't fit and I can't figure out which kit I need because it don't have my car on list. I got the old wheel and I am thinking of cutting center out and bolt wheel to that.

    Well I've not done much still got a hole in my floor which stinks. I've switched it over to 12 volt and starts so easy now. Need to have motor checked out more but it runs good just leaks oil and looks rough.

    i want a 3" rear ride and air ride in the front that when i pump all the air out it sits 2 1/2" - 3" off the ground and goes up to a max of 6 1/2" -7" off the ground to allow wheels to clear fenders. i want to get the plastic ship thing out front removed its nasty looking. then i need to find a piece of stainless that im missing out front and find a couple letters for front. i've had this ride for 2 years now and it just sits waiting to get worked on. i am very proud of myself switching it to a 12v system since i am not a mechanic. i'm in the middle of doing tail light rewiring and hooking up a pull switch to operate dash lights and exterior lights since they don't work at the moment. after that i'm going to make custom door panels with speakers in them and keep them from rattling like plastic on metal i got a trick up my sleeve lol. well hope ya guys keep checking in cause it will get done sometime this year {cross my fingers}.... thanks for the welcoming me in to the hamb.
