    Well i have been trying to work on the car. But we are in dec and family stuff is getting in the way lol. I filled alot of the holes in the bay, the onley big ones left is the holes for the harnes. I am keeping those open for now becouse i am going to put the gsr in for a test fit, do all the wires and make shure she runs good.

    Sunday went for a 7 hour road trip whit a budy. We went to get a transission for me and a gsr for him, finding parts online and going for a road trip to get theme is goest as much fun then building the car. Got the shift links and the motor mounts for the swap.

    The transmission is a y21 no lsd does anyone know what cv axels i should get to fit my spindels.

    So i started the front last night, did the all the grinding, i cleaned up the transmission a bit but ran out of brake clean fast. Is it ever covered lol. They must of blown a gasket or somthing and never cleaned it up.
