    New pan with pro street transmission.

    Basically just gonna sell the rest.

    Currently shopping for race seats, a roll cage, new trans mounts, and maybe a new steering wheel.

    Plans for a vertigate shifter too somewhere along the way.

    Well finally working on this thing again.

    Ive acquired a transmission, axles, rear disc brakes, tint, and misc other parts like solid engine mounts, traction bars, new wheels for the back.

    This year its going a bit more gasser/racer style.

    red tint on windows, race buckets, roll cage, etc.

    stretched fenders (2.5 in front, 3 in back) and then a 15x7 up front and 15x9 in the back.

    should be retuned this year for 350 hp. etc.

    just getting into pulling the motor now and starting on the install of everything else.
