    great build man....always good to see an 18 year old "kid" working on a project from the ground up. I think it says a lot about you. Looking forward to this build.

    Haha are they ever "done"?
    Hopefully I can finish rebuilding my transmission, install my coil overs and get to drive it without breaking anything else for a while
    haha Im aiming to start building the engine this time next year

    It probably would've been smarter to just get a different car -__-
    Oops

    It's more fun to make a car fast rather than buy a fast car.
    Take mine for example, it looks fast but wasn't fast. Now I have a Windsor that I'm building and a turbo kit that is Goin on it. That along with all the new suspension and rear end stuff I'm doing this car is going to be insanely fast.

    Dreamt of and built by me is more satisfying then just "bought" my me.

    It would have been easier, can't argue that. I would take pride in your achievement tho! My friends told me I was an idiot for wanting to do a 2wd to 4x4 swap in my truck, but it's been 5 years since I finished it and it's still my daily. You will have some bugs to sort out for sure, but sometimes it's worth it. Good luck with the car man!

    I might make a video or take pictures of reassembly my transmission didn't document the disassembly because I was concentrating on remember what gears went were and stuff.

    After transmission Im going to install my front MM coil overs

    I don't have suspension for the rear yet


    My car is going to be like a religious girl "saving it for marriage" tight in the front, loose in the rear

    I recently relocated some things
    I moved the battery to the trunk
    I put the horns in the bumper
    I temporarily(?) deleted the washer fluid reservoir
    I put the fuse box in the fender well

    I installed a MGW shifter tonight, so far i really like it, it feels tight
    haha Ive been driving the shit out of mine.
    Im getting a second block(probably not anytime soon) to build so i don't have to take it back off the road for so long.
