Just removed the trans mount off the firewall, I also modded for the clutch master cylinder for the reservoir to be mounted flush. I notched the passenger side frame for 4" down pipe clearance. Trans fit like a glove, like it was meant to be, shifter fit the console perfect. If injuries and money would allow, Id have it finished by now, its like 1 step forward, 3 back. But it will get there.

Keep up the great work man, sorry to hear about the continued issues. You are a nice guy, but sometimes you have to look out for yourself.

I will vouch that his work is amazing, he fabbed up some steering arms for my '67 Datsun Roadster and it came back better than i expected!

Keep in touch, and if you need anything you have my number!

Ty just wanted to say thanks for posting up your build and giving me a push in the right direction towards my build. My work is no where as top notch as yours but it's great to see the quality stuff you produce and give guys like me something to shoot for. Just wanted to share a picture of what you definitely helped one guy with.


Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Dang looking good. I want to tube my front as well but I don't think I will go that far with mine for now.

Nope, you can use stock ones. I was just trying some new stuff, Since my rear knuckles use the bolt on hub bearings, I bought a s14 5 lug conversion kit, since the 350z axles are the same spline as the s14 hub. So i converted my car to 5x114 on the front with that s14 front knuckles that are flipped, so it was easier to just run s14 parts. No redrilling and machining hubs to run 5x100.

Also I haven't forgot about you, meant to send you a text over the weekend. I never could find any machine shop to cut the parts out that I needed so I purchased a lathe for my shop. Should be here tomorrow or tuesday. Should have your setup finished with in a week.

finally got around to the sway bar install and tabs on the control arms. I cut custom aluminum spacers for the heims, so where ever the a-arms are adjusted to, you can just rearrange the spacers to realign the adjustable sway bar links.
Also don't mind the mess in the shop, having to rearrange everything so stuff is laying everywhere.

Pretty sick set of hobbies you have. Seems like a pretty enjoyable life, glad some people take the time to do stuff like this. Nice vid. Also, bang up job on the sway bar mounts and a-arms!

I woke up to a storm this morning and headed to the shop this morning at 4:30AM to find the ditch behind my shop overfilled and washed out. My neighbor had a water line ran to her house and a guy dug the hole through the bank of the ditch. But it wasn't packed back down and the pipes going under the drive way were semi blocked. But when I got to my shop had almost a foot of water flowing through it. Numerous items and tools are soaked, I opened all my roll up doors and it got the water level down. Rain has stopped for now but have another line of storms coming in a few hrs. Never had it flood this bad. I took pics of everything that I could, gotta see if insurance is going to cover anything. Makes me sick thinking about what all could be ruined.

Right when I feel like your luck is turning around... That is terrible. Hopefully everything will get sorted out. I want to see those pics. I'm interested.

Man sorry to hear about yet another set back for you. I hope for the best, and that insurance will cover what was lost.
